Is Automation Of Industry Good For Us?


The companies matters most in making more money and they are always on the lookout for ways to minimize the costs to make the profits for the products they make. This is where factory automation comes into play. A factory that relies heavily on automation minimizes their expenditure as they have not to pay the labor costs, to produce products thereby increasing profits all the way around.

For every new innovation implemented there is always a debate on the pros and cons of it. So let's discuss over here the advantages and disadvantages of the industry innovation over here.

Automation relies on programmed machines to perform tasks which were performed by a human before. One of the problems is that these machines cost in the millions of dollars, which means a very high initial investment for the company before it starts. Now the investment which is made is meant to be recovered. Now the investor's thinks to recover it fast in the mode of profits but it's necessary to get the investments back either if it's in fast or slow mode. Now it's depend on the way the production is done or starts and how the work gets completed in the right time to get it delivered to the market to earn good profits to recover the investment. So it is very important to choose the way of production to turn the organization into profits. In theory, the investors can make the investment back in a few years by not having to pay an employee to do the job, who was replaced by the machine. But what if the job becomes unnecessary? This means that they spent a lot of money that was not needed. This money can be invested in the other part of business to develop the organization, like hiring skill workers in other departments where machines can't replace human.

The other debate can be as these machines are machines which can replace man but never can replace the brain of man. It is the human who can react to any debacle happen at any time of production, but whereas the machines don't have the much knowledge to react at any debacle till the program for the machine is not structured to do so. Most of us think that the machines are perfect to replace human but it is not the case. The machines have to be updated every time a debacle occurs so that the machine is ready for the next time so that the loss does not occur next time. Whereas the human is always ready for anything and to sort out the problem anytime required.

The other biggest factors affected by the automation of the industry are the humans, because of loss of work. It takes jobs away from the people who need them badly. It does harm the economy because the more people that are out of jobs the worse the economy is. This can change the face of the region.
So there are many advantages and disadvantages of automation, but this has to be utilized limitedly for the benefit of human kind but not to worse hit the human life. Utilize it for the best cause to serve human in the best way.

Electricians - What Their Work Includes


Electricians do a variety of work in the home and in commercial premises to ensure the electrical installation operates efficiently and to the correct building regulations. Electricians also operate to the right British Standards.
Testing & Certification
Electricians must make sure that electrical installations are safe in the home or commercial premises. Electrical testing should be completed by a qualified electrician at specified periods and is dependent on the type of property being tested. Electricians will check for any deterioration and also on any new work, which is required to bring the installation up to current standards.
Electricians should test and certify electrical work in accordance with the British Standard BS7671. As with any British Standard BS7671:2001 is being always updated to ensure the electrical safety of your property. Electricians will also inform you of any other British Standards which are applicable to your electrical installation. Work carried out by electricians should only be done in accordance with the appropriate regulations.
Electricians are continually trained on the latest regulations which impact on both domestic and commercial properties. Various training centres are available throughout the UK to support electricians with new regulations for testing and certification and other electrical requirements. Certificates provided by the electricians will be from one of the awarding bodies such as the NICEIC, ECA, Elecsa, Napit or Select depending on the electricians choice.
Rewires & Wiring
Many home owners take electricity for granted. With older properties the wiring may need to be replaced by a competent electrician. It is easy to forget over time the cabling in a property becomes outdated and for safety reasons will need to be replaced. So electricians do rewiring predominantly for safety reasons because old wiring can cause fires and electrical shocks. Here are some reasons why you may need a rewire:
  • You currently have switches in the bathroom
  • There are sockets on the skirting
  • Green residue is found on the wiring
  • Wiring is covered in cotton
  • Rubber cables are black
  • The sockets are the round pin variety
Electricians offer lots of support with rewiring to ensure that you get the right solution. Electricians provide domestic electrical reports to show you the current state of the electrics in your property. This will show you any potential electrical problems. Electricians recommend that this check is performed at least every 10 years.
Fuesbox / Fuseboard Upgrades
Electricians should also offer fuseboard upgrades to further enhance the safety of your electrics. New fuseboards offer different electrical safety devises including RCD's, MCB's and RCBO's. As part of an upgrade to wiring new properties new fuseboards are often offered to enhance the safety of your property. In addition to these services electricians also do the wiring to new build properties, extensions, & conservatories. Any electrical work electricians perform in these areas will be tested and certified by qualified electricians. Again this certification will uphold the requirements of the British Safety Standard BS7671:2001.
Lighting Installations
Lights should be installed by an electrician in most circumstances in the home and also in commercial properties. No only can people enhance the surroundings and interior of their property with carefully designed interior lighting, but electricians can also advise on how to save energy and money with the right energy saving fittings. Lighting is great for security also and electricians will offer solutions for security lighting. Many people also want to have lighting which improves the outdoor appearance of their property. Garden or any other outdoor lighting can be installed by electricians.
Electricians will use their extensive experience in domestic lighting to provide a solution that is right for your home. Electricians will plan the lighting installation with you and complete any installation and testing required.
Security System Installations
Home and commercial security systems can be designed by electricians to suit the requirement of the property. The specification can vary greatly in costs and also the complexity of the installation. Experienced and qualified electricians can provide a solution that will fit with your requirements and personal needs.
Even the most basic of intruder alarms can assist your security, however more expensive intruder alarm systems installed by electricians will offer more opportunities. You can have fully monitored alarm systems, which offer an even greater deterrent to burglars. Monitored alarms have the ability to contact the Police, when a break-in has occurred and also offer fire safety options in some circumstances.
Electricians also install door entry systems, much like the ones you see in hotels and student accommodation. These systems can also have audio and/ or audio plus CCTV additions if required. Electricians will design a system to fit with your domestic or commercial premises and can be integrated with alarm systems. Electricians also combine these solutions with outdoor lighting to offer greater security.
