Part of the Schriftenreihe der Wissenschaftlichen Landesakademie für Niederösterreich book series (AKADNIEDERÖSTER)


Basic automation in Finnish industry proceeded parallelly to mechanisation in primary production and to the large social change caused by the latter. Government and industry support automation, while the public and trade unions are neutral or in favour of it. While it is expanded in industry, a scientific backing is seldom sought for.
