Training of Human Resources for Automation Design in Developing Countries
Automation reduces the number and necessary qualification of most workforce in plant operation and so allows to enthance the quality of products also in countries without enough training workers. However, by reducing the need and importance of skilled workers it reduces also their action field and does not contribute to spread knowledge.The higher requirements for the automation design may even deepen the dependance on foreign know-how, thereby offsetting the positive effects on the long run.
