The automation of a production process is merely the mechanisation of repetitive tasks. The industrialisation of a production process by LORMAC technicians will result in the optimisation of production. The performance indicators used in the automation of a process include increased productivity (enhanced tempo) and quality, improved flow management (lower energy consumption, fewer materials and storage costs) and improved working conditions for operators.
