Businesses have been using people in operations to manufacture and create the things that customers need every single day. People are generally very smart and so things get done in an efficient and professional manner. The unfortunate thing about being human is that we do make mistakes and regular mistakes on any production line can lead to downtime, lower productivity and losses in profit. Many businesses cannot afford to take on these negative traits when it comes to people and so they look for ways in which to improve the whole process that will increase productivity and also provide better efficiency.
