    I recently came to know that automation is future of every industry. I wanted to reach out to you professionals to get an insight into the possibility of automating marble production system. In other words, can the human dependency be reduced in the process of producing a marble? (This video prompted me to ask the question-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH2A-Pipf80)

    Automated systems have traditionally been explored as binary function allocations; either the human or the machine is assigned to a given task. More recently, intermediary levels of automation have been discussed as a means of maintaining operator involvement in system performance, leading to improvements in situation awareness and reductions in out-of-the-loop performance problems. Compared with manual performance, reliable automation significantly reduced decision times. Unreliable automation led to greater cost in decision-making accuracy under the higher automation reliability condition for three different forms of decision automation relative to information automation. At low automation reliability, however, there was a cost in performance for both information and decision automation

    @surendraa777, What does your question have to do with Six Sigma?

    Automation may reduce variation so it is relevant to Six Sigma, as an option that might be considered in the Improve phase. It should never be a goal in the Charter since we don’t presuppose a solution to the problem.
