Automatized systems able to process tasks without human input

Automatization

Trendcard: Automatization
Derived from greek “acting autonomously”, automatized systems are capable of processing and handling tasks or problems on their own without human input (once installed).
Automatization is mostly used in routine-based, work-intense economic environments for monitoring, steering, regulating the processes and their results.

Use case examples

  • Transformation of technical equipment to process without human input (e.g. manufacturing)
  • Software macros (if-then automatisms)
  • Human-free factories

Chances

  • Efficiency gains
  • Lower head counts
  • Easier to control and combine with other information regarding quality and quantity

Risks

  • Extremely high dependency on available software and electricity
  • Supervision and maintenance only by highly skilled staff
  • Not everything is suitable for aautomatization
