Positive Human-Robot Relationships Will Power the Future Supply Chain Workforce
December 03, 2018 / Richard E. Crandall
For centuries, hand tools helped humans build dwellings, clothing, food containers and vehicles.
The introduction of power tools then made it possible to complete this work much more quickly and with a lot less effort. Not long ago, robots added yet another level of automation by making it possible to get work done even more efficiently and by providing information about their operations.
During this time, it often seemed that designers were trying to build automated systems to replace workers completely. But recently, there has been a significant shift toward building robots that can work in harmony with humans.
