Abstract

Large scale, integrated systems may result in a number of unanticipated human consequences. Data from four companies in three countries suggests that management, staff specialists, and workers experience difficulty in coping with the cognitive and motivational problems emerging from the acquisition and use of this new technology. Greater emphasis needs to be placed on investment in smallscale, decentralized, manufacturing systems and on aiding organizations to make the adjustments needed.
