Abstract

Introducing highly automated machinery combining direct numerical control capabilities with automated material handling could potentially revolutionize batch production. However, experience suggests that projected uptime or utilization is not being achieved. Increased attention must be paid to employee satisfaction, motivation, incentive programs, and work group design.
