This essay aims to provide clarity and orientation about automation. Automation is often considered one-sided instead of integrated — by wrongly excluding the human factor. Dr. Bodo Eidenmüller has co-designed the process of automation at Siemens, has transferred pioneering practical experience of automation from Japan, and is a committed observer of all things relating to Industry 4.0. He is convinced that automation can only be introduced expediently by integrating the workforce using proven methods based upon practical experience.
