What is Automation ?
Automation or automatic control,is the process of using machinery or
other helpers (software or hardware) to decrease or reduce human
interaction and increase production and quality of the product.
Automation crosses all functions within industry from
installation, integration, and maintenance to design, procurement, and
management. Automation even reaches into the marketing and sales
Automation involves a very broad range of
technologies including robotics and expert systems, telemetry and
communications, electro-optics, Cybersecurity, process measurement
and control, sensors, wireless applications, systems integration, test
measurement, and many, many more.
Industrial Automation : One of the most important application areas for automation technology
is industrial manufacturing and production.
An automated production line consists of a series of workstations connected by a transfer system to
move parts between the stations. This is an example of fixed automation, since these lines are
typically set up for long production runs, perhaps making millions of product units and running for
several years between changeovers. Each station is designed to perform a specific processing
operation, so that the part or product is constructed stepwise as it progresses along the line. A raw
work part enters at one end of the line, proceeds through each workstation, and emerges at the other
end as a completed product.Three types of automation in production can be distinguished: (1) fixed
automation, (2) programmable automation, and (3) flexible automation.
● Software Automation : Another area of heavy automation is Software Development.
● Software automation ranges from automated design to testing.
● Automation in software development heavily decreases the effort of the developer in additional
details and methods(error handling to testing)
● Current status of automation is from user friendly environments to self testing tools and even
product Security and packaging.
Automation in Real World...
ABB is a multinational corporation headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, operating mainly in robotics and the
power and automation technology areas. It ranked 158th in the Forbes Ranking (2013).
ABB is one of the largest engineering companies as well as one of the largest conglomerates in the world.
The division Discrete Automation and Motion provides products and services for industrial production. It
includes electric motors, generators, drives, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), power electronics and
industrial robots. ABB has installed over 200,000 robots
Robert Bosch GmbH, or Bosch, is a German multinational engineering and
electronics company headquartered in Gerlingen, near Stuttgart, Germany. It is the
world's largest supplier of automotive components measured by 2011
revenues.Bosch's core products are automotive components (including brakes,
controls, electrical drives, electronics, fuel systems, generators, starter motors and
steering systems), industrial products (including drives and controls, packaging
technology and consumer goods) and building products (including household
appliances, power tools, security systems and thermotechnology)
About 60% of Bosch's worldwide annual sales are produced in automotive
All the multinational companies are automated to improve their production rate and Quality.
Automation in Softwares starts from designing to testing and coding. Visual studio,Android
Studio,eclipse and other software development tools are the automated software design and develop
tools.these provide immense help and ease the work of the developer.
Test-studio is the most intuitive and easy to use automated testing tool on the market.
MAS is the world's preeminent security automation software, MASterMind provides a fully
integrated, enterprise solution for monitored security service providers and proprietary central stations.
The Act-On Marketing Service gives you all the tools you need for successful online
marketing,Once a product is developed it is automatically marketed into the real world.
FUTURE OF AUTOMATION……..
Future of automation,must state to range where humans must be able to achieve perfection in
every product .Help from the automation must :
● Start from the present situation of the doers
● See the situation through the eyes of the doers
● Not be imposed on the doers, as that directly violates their autonomy
● Nor can doers receive help as a benevolent gift, as that creates dependency
Software development is one area to keep an eye for with ever developing options the need for
is an essential part.Developing Software system that automates the process of a developer makes it
the most interesting part as automation basis is a software which instructs the machinery for
Automation of the basis of automation makes software automation the future
lookout for automation process.
My Interest lies in providing customers softwares that ease their life.So Automation is the Best way to do
My view of an automated service or product must resolve the user problems but should not
intervene with his creativity. So I aim to build a product that will direct and help accordingly to build up the
user view. The software will have a easy use software interface which helps developers just like how
visual studio helps in every step of the development. The deployment will be on multiple platforms such
as andriod/IOS and Windows. The automation software will test the builds in all the possibilties to bolster
the Quality of the software and also make it secure.
All my views of an automated software are real world examples explained before,my vision of
automation is to bring all these properties into a single system and help a developer to the maxiumum
If chosen this opportunity would be used to to enhance my skills professionally and personally. To
know more about the level of the projects in software firms. And to know more about the Automated tools
used in the industry and to be a part of creating one.
Also interested to work on mobile and cloud computing.
