The continuous and future integration
of autonomous solutions in manufacturing
will result in mass production in quantities
of one. This means that every product will
be designed and customized for local needs,
and produced on-demand by robotic systems
in local production facilities. This will not
only change the way we design and create,
but inherently, it will change the way we will
consume, as well.
For example, the adoption of robots in
manufacturing will allow for any individuals
with a computer and desire to put their own
furniture, clothing, or car designs online.
Local infrastructure will be available for
cost-effective production of these designs by
wholly autonomous systems. Consumers can
then have their custom goods on-demand.
There are many similarities in this new
wave of manufacturing processes with the
Industrial Revolution where standardized
parts meant that we could produce goods at
vastly lower costs. However, the result was
that everyone had the same product. With
robots entering manufacturing, the cost of
producing goods is lower still, but the difference is that now everyone has a custom
product, tailored to their needs and tastes.
This is the next step in the evolution of mass
production and fulfilling consumer demands.
