Title: Impact of automation on precision
Published: August 03, 2009
Abstract: Automation has significant impacts on the economy and the development and use of technology. In this section, the impacts of automation on precision, which directly influences science, technology, and the economy, are discussed. As automation enables improved precision, precision also improves automation. Followed by the definition of precision and the factors affecting precision, the relationship between precision and automation is described. This section concludes with specific examples of how automation has improved the precision of manufacturing processes and manufactured products over the last decades.
