  3. 3. Using Robotic Technology <ul><li>No human could operate at the same speeds with the same amount of accuracy. </li></ul><ul><li>Robots are efficient; no need for toilet breaks, cigarette breaks, absences due to illness…. </li></ul><ul><li>No risk of productivity decreasing due to morale, or disputes. </li></ul><ul><li>Competitive advantage over rivals through capacity utilisation, quality and lower unit costs. </li></ul>

  6. 6. Kanban <ul><li>A kanban is a card that accompanies components as they move through production. These cards act as a signalling system to trigger re-ordering of components and supplies and thus improve stock control. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Communicative Technology (ICT) <ul><li>The acquisition, processing, storage and dissemination of vocal, pictorial, textual and numerical information through a combination of computing and telecommunications. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Design Technology <ul><li>CAD/CAM </li></ul><ul><li>Creation of new products </li></ul>

You need to make sure it is not just descriptive! You need to write about why they use what they use, suggest other things they can do, what else their current systems may depend upon….in other words be analytical and evaluative!! Skills you need to develop!!! </li></ul>
