Robots will increasingly perform tasks not only on the factory floor, but also in the shipping and receiving, warehouse, and office areas. The robots do not get sick, get bored, or have personality problems that influence productivity. As computer software becomes more advanced and artificial intelligence continues to factor into innovation, robots will be used in a wide range of industries. Robots stocking, loading, order picking, as well as performing many other types of manufacturing tasks, will continue to rapidly eliminate jobs for humans.
