High production costs translate to lower profits, and even in the most profitable of businesses it makes sense to reduce costs for a better bottom line
Whilst capital costs may be a major influence in the decision to automate, in actual fact automation and robotic solutions can not only decrease costs, they provide dramatic increases in production capabilities through increased speed, reduction of bottle necks and the capability to run 24/7.
Some industries in particular have high labor costs due to a lack of skilled labor and high turnover. Automation and robotic solutions remove the need to constantly find and train new staff, and allow current staff to be reallocated to more value adding tasks, which in turn can reduce labor turnover through improved workplace conditions.
The return on investment (ROI) for automation and robotic solutions can be surprising low, due to the increased through-put and higher product quality coupled with reduced labor costs.
Automating also reduces the need for staff to perform dangerous and physically demanding tasks, removing costly OH&S issues.
