Return on Investment is the
key to most, if not all, automation projects. Better utilization
of an existing work force is a very easy way to prove your
ROI. The true costs due to inconsistent quality are sometimes
overlooked. Lack of repeat business, returns, unhappy customers,
a decline in a company's image and increased inspection
/ regulations can all be extremely damaging not just to
a company's present day operations, but it's future also.
