First Zero Labor Factory in China
Dongguan-based private company Everwin Precision Technology Ltd is implementing a project to put 1,000 robots in use in its first phase of the zero-labor project. The company has so far installed 100 robots on the assembly line.
"The 'zero-labor factory" means, the size of workforce will go down by up to 90 percent, according to the explanation given proponents of the idea or concept. In this zero labor factory, instead of the current 2,000 workers, only 200 computer savvy operators will manage software systems and material planning and movement related operations.
