In order to stay on top of the game, consumer product manufacturers must make products of higher quality, more cheaply, and more quickly than ever before. Increasing labor costs and worker safety issues have added to the demand for automation on the factory floor.
Manufacturers must find ways to reduce manufacturing waste, such as scrap, and inspect products more quickly and accurately and so, many quality control tasks are being shifted to automated systems to increase reliability and decrease labor costs.
Manufacturers of certain consumer goods must have systems in place to provide a trail of information that follows each item through the supply chain.
