Machine Work

Machine work has become an important part of manufacturing due to human limitations in relation to demand of products. Demand has risen and will continue to rise in the future. Certain characteristics of machines have made the production keep up with the demand.When it comes to the manufacturing of products, there are a few variables of machine work that you are looking for: speed, quality, efficiency, capability, and cleanliness. Industrial sized manufacturing machines are designed to be optimal with respect to these variables. This is not to say that they are currently at optimum but they are able to manufacture with respect to these variables at levels far surpassing that of humans.

Speed

A well-oiled piece of machinery can move very quickly and acts without hesitation. There is no stagnation between phases; When one phase finishes, the next phase immediately begins. This consistency and speed over a period of time can reduce the time it takes to fill orders by a great amount and increases overall productivity.

Quality

Machines have no emotions and no inconsistencies. The outcomes are always predictable. Due to these rules, the quality of a product that is produced by a piece of machinery is equivalent to the quality of the raw materials put in and the configuration of those materials. It is up to the owner of the machine to create quality, but once the quality is created, it is consistently acquired.

Efficiency

Efficiency is something that must be determined with respect to another variable. The efficiency with respect to the amount of human work put in is very high. There is incredible production value gained from a small amount of human work, especially once the manufacturing is configured and is running on autopilot.

The other respect to speak of would be the cost-efficiency. Manufacturing can be extremely costly and the amount of capital spent on labor may not always be worth the investment. Machine work cuts the labor cost and will make production of a product an efficient expense.

Capability

Perhaps the most important variable is the capabilities of machine work. There are some jobs that a human, simply, cannot do. Whether it be due to strength, speed, precision, or even dangerous conditions, machine work is necessary in many productions just to actually get the job done where a human cannot.

Cleanliness

When work is done, there are usually some scraps left behind. Not only is this a waste of materials but this also increases the amount of labor required for cleanup. This increased labor drives up production costs and hurts efficiency. Well made machinery does work with increasingly minimal waste. This helps reduce administrative overhead(in regards to the cleaning) as well as slightly lowering materials costs.

Machine work as part of the manufacturing process has become an integration as opposed to just an option. It has increased our manufacturing abilities by great amounts and will most likely continue to raise our abilities.
