Factory, two

To make factories more efficient, some manufacturers use computers to link the operations of various machines and to control the flow of work through the plant. These computers enable a few technicians to survey and operate the entire factory.

Such factories may use robots and computer-controlled machine tools. These devices often provide safer, more efficient ways to perform tiring or dangerous tasks. Such tasks include welding, spray painting, and transporting heavy machinery.
