How Have Robots Changed Manufacturing?

Robots have completely changed and improved the manufacturing world. As they become faster, smarter, and cheaper, they're being called upon to do even more.

Robots do not tire, need breaks, call in sick, or go on strike. They have taken over a lot of repetitive, boring, and often dangerous jobs on the factory floor. Robots have increased productivity and have allowed more manufacturing to remain in the United States as labor costs have become less of a factor.

While robots have eliminated a lot of lower-skilled manufacturing jobs, they have created quite a few high-skilled jobs. The cost savings and productivity improvements caused by manufacturing robots have allowed companies to invest in innovation, which has in turn created jobs in such areas as engineering and product design.

Of course, this shift in the nature of manufacturing jobs can cause some economic dislocation. The imperative for companies is to help train their workforce to be able to occupy the more highly skilled manufacturing jobs of the future.

In the long run, robots will benefit the entire economy by making goods cheaper and easier to manufacture. People will spend less of their disposable income on robotically-manufactured products, saving more money for other things.
