WHAT IS AUTOMATION?
It is the
technology
associated with the
use of electrical, mechanical and computer based systems
to
operate and control production
inorder to
increasereliabilityand efficiency
. This is usually
accomplished through programmed commands
combinedwith
automatic feedback control 
to ensure proper execution of the instructions. Theresulting system is
capable of operating without human intervention
.For a
, this could entail using
 Examples include
:
Automated machine tools that process parts
Transfer lines that perform a series of machining operations
Automated assembly systems
Manufacturing systems that use industrial robots to perform processing or assembly operations
Automated material handling and storage systems to integrate manufacturingoperations
Automatic inspection systems for quality control2
 
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIXED AND PROGRAMMABLEAUTOMATION:
FIXED AUTOMATIONPROGRAMMABLE AUTOMATION
A system in which the sequence of the processing or assembly operation is fixed by theequipment configurationThe production equipment is designed with thecapability to change the sequence of operationsto accommodate different product configurationConsists of workstations connected by conveyersor machine transfer linesOperations sequence controlled by a program (aset of instruction codes - system can read andinterpret)
 
High initial investment for customized equipment(Jig, Die, etc.)High investment in general-purpose equipment(flexible)Very efficient - High production rate (no extraoperations)Low production rates relative to fixedautomation (not efficient)Relatively inflexible in accommodating productchangesFlexibility to deal with changes in productconfigurationFor the products with high demands andvolumesUsed in low to medium productionExample: Automobile productionExample: Programmable Auto Equipments
