Inspired from the word automaton, the word automation is closely associated to automatic. The dictionary defines automation as “the technique of making an apparatus, a process, or a system operate automatically.”
The International Society of Automation defines automation as “the creation and application of technology to monitor and control the production and delivery of products and services.”
Using above definitions, it can be inferred that automation profession includes “everyone involved in the creation and application of technology to monitor and control the production and delivery of products and services”; and the automation professional is “any individual involved in the creation and application of technology to monitor and control the production and delivery of products and services.”
The biggest benefit of automation includes less labour; however, it is also used to save energy and materials and to improve quality, accuracy and precision. It’s not a just a technique, it’s a full fledged profession!
