Competing in the Automotive Market Requires Automation

Jun 05, 2017 | It goes beyond politics for these companies to engage in competitive efforts to build products in North America. But the only way that a re-shoring movement is feasible is to automate the process. The long factory worker assembly lines are an idea of the past. As manufacturing companies develop their business plans moving forward, they will have to be built on a solid foundation of lower input with higher output and increased quality. As the complexity and miniaturization of parts are accomplished, quality in production will be essential to maintaining a solid competitive edge.
