PlayStation's secret weapon: a nearly all-automated factory


Image
Just a few humans were present to deal with a handful of tasks -- two to feed bare motherboards to the line, and two to package the finished consoles.

But the actual assembly is done entirely by articulated robots, supplied by Mitsubishi Electric. The 31.4-meter line, completed in 2018, has the ability to churn out a new console every 30 seconds.

Their culture is much, much more robot-friendly than ours is. Our CEOs must worry with any automated factory plan if he'll be attacked for eliminating jobs.

Thier CEOs are mostly parts of gigantic trusts that evolved from consolidation that took place in the very early days of moderniztion and conversion from Samurai culture.

Can you say "Antitrrust, anitshmust" in Japanese?

They can plan for the future and screw up royally, as they did with their "lost decade" of almost no growth some decades ago.

But also by planning such factories years ago. And undoubtedly more now. We know that Japan is "running out of Japanese," on a seriously-declining demographic slope.

This is their answer, instead of importing more Eritreans, Somalians, Hondurans, Mexicans and Haitians - as we do.
