Learning to Embrace Change

Aug 17, 2014

Integrating an industrial robot on your production line will increase the overall efficiency and productivity. It will also create different types of jobs for workers as robots need to be properly maintained, programmed, and evaluated. Expanding across the globe, industrial robots truly help to bring huge benefits in a wide range of applications.


At some point in the his­to­ry of a cor­po­ra­tion, the need to change oper­at­ing pro­ce­dure becomes appar­ent. As a new gen­er­a­tion comes into lead­er­ship posi­tions and new tech­nol­o­gy make old­er process out­dat­ed, a com­pa­ny needs to embrace these changes to remain viable with­in their indus­try. In the man­u­fac­tur­ing envi­ron­ment, a dri­ving force that requires many busi­ness­es to upgrade their fac­to­ries is the use of robot­ics automa­tion in the assem­bly of com­po­nents. With a grow­ing num­ber of uses for these robots, busi­ness­es that wait too long to upgrade their fac­to­ry will find them­selves strug­gling to remain in operation.

Peo­ple are typ­i­cal­ly hes­i­tant to make dras­tic changes in their life. They find enjoy­ment and com­fort in famil­iar sur­round­ings. For work­ers that have become accus­tomed to an estab­lished way of per­form­ing tasks, it can be stress­ful to learn new skills. Mod­ern soci­ety is see­ing a major shift from pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions. Many work­ers today have become used to adapt­ing to new tech­nolo­gies and acquir­ing new skills in their indus­try. For them, tran­si­tion­ing to robot­ics automa­tion sys­tems will not require as great of a change as more tra­di­tion­al busi­ness­es. Com­ing to terms with the need to embrace a new approach is half of the bat­tle in becom­ing suc­cess­ful with a new oper­at­ing procedure.

With­in an orga­ni­za­tion, many work­ers will dis­cov­er that the instal­la­tion of robot­ic automa­tion equip­ment will have lit­tle impact upon their dai­ly duties. They may find that they no longer need to per­form spe­cif­ic tasks or slight­ly alter the order in which they com­plete oth­er activ­i­ties. One thing that may become read­i­ly appar­ent is an increase in the speed and num­ber of objects that are being devel­oped with­in the man­u­fac­tur­ing plant. This may require some employ­ees to pick up theie pace in order to match the faster pro­cess­ing time.

Not only do mod­ern man­u­fac­tur­ing stan­dards dic­tate that old­er fac­to­ries seri­ous­ly con­sid­er upgrad­ing to robot­ics and automa­tion sys­tems, but the well-being of the orga­ni­za­tion does as well. With many new and emerg­ing com­pa­nies short­en­ing their pro­duc­tion times, an estab­lished com­pa­ny needs to do the same to remain com­pet­i­tive. Although not all employ­ees will be hap­py with the pro­posed changes, it is nec­es­sary for the good of the com­pa­ny. Giv­en time, even the staunchest oppo­nent will like­ly learn to embrace the robots as a mod­ern coworker.
