Our societies are changing more quickly, more profoundly and on a greater scale than ever before. Occupational exhaustion is a challenge that accentuates aging and pain through work and its consequences, including job fatigue and work-related illnesses. Decent work puts people at the centre of development, since they are the most precious asset for a company. The people-first approach promotes working environments that are favourable to health, where everyone comes home healthy from work.
The factory of the future is a place that focuses entirely on sustainability, be it for its operators or for nature. The ultimate dream is to create an environment where operators can work comfortably and safely, where their gestures are assisted, and their arduousness is reduced. In the long run, operational efficiency is improved because the factory favours the development of each workers’ expertise. The factory of the future also takes energy expenses very seriously and tries to avoid costly and wasteful production lines. So, one must ask, why fear the future when you can invent it?
The tragic reality is that our beautiful and diverse global environment is being lost incredibly faster than the current speed of innovation. Contributing to a sustainable society in the industrial field means developing lean and flexible lines, more efficient and more capable of contributing to a sustainable society. While industrial robots cost around 250 000€ for installation, then 10 000€ per year for maintenance (source: ABB Group), Karakuri Kaizen are one hundred times less expensive, without even speaking of the electricity receipt which is negated though natural principals. This leaves more room to make eco-friendly choices, leading to the establishment of a future society in harmony with nature.
