"Saw this one today...thought it was worth sharing...The theory is that beyond Level 3 automation, capital costs and technical complexity increase dramatically. Properly loading parts for humans is easy but can require delicate technologies to automate.Recuo a:
Similarly, transferring parts automatically may require robots or transfer lines. This may seem attractive on paper, but the complexity often reduces process reliability to below 70%.
In addition, what do you do with expensive, highly automated lines when demand changes? When demand falls off you are stuck with an underutilized piece of high-depreciation equipment. When demand rises above capacity you need to buy another expensive automated line.
Experience has shown that Level 3 Automation achieves many of the benefits of full automation but without the expense, procurement lead time, maintenance requirements, downtime and volume inflexibility.
Thus: “The Great Divide” Look for alternatives first."

Robôs e Mongo
O parceiro das conversas oxigenadoras mandou-me um texto interessante sobre o tema ada automatização, bem em linha com o que sempre aqui se escreveu sobre o problema da automatização quando choca com a variedade crescente de Mongo:
