INTRODUCTIONInnovation is a solution to problems that are faced by people. It is like an application ofnew idea and new imaginations. It makes the existing process easier and better. Automobileindustry deals with designing, manufacturing, developing, selling and marketing of motorvehicles.Overview of chosen innovation: Automation is a technology which is used to controlequipment without any involvement of human assistance. It includes a process of switchingsystem in factories of equipment like boilers, ovens, stabilizer, drilling, labeling, etc. it makes thesystem to operate automatically and efficient in manufacturing products in same proportion.Automation makes benefits to industry in operations like manufacturing, transportation, defense,controlling, communication, etc.Overview of chosen company: Ford Australia is a subsidiary of Ford motor company of unitedstates. It was founded on 1925 by Henry Ford. It has headquartered in Richmond, Melbourne.There are approx 1300 employees work in company. It manufactures different models of car likeHatchback, mid- size, large car, luxury car, SUV, etc.This report discusses the origin of innovation in automobile industry. It frames aspects ofsustainability which helps to address issues. It outlines challenges that are faced duringimplementation of innovative technology. Also, recommendations are also included in this reportwhich will also discuss about the lessons learned with new technologies.MAIN BODYAnalysis of automation with respect to engineeringThere is need to understand the relevancy of automation in context to engineeringaspects. With technological advancements and open economy, the computerization has assistedin allowing the usage of software by making the work convenient and easier. According toLacity, Willcocks, & Craig (2015) innovation has always been important for the auto-mobileindustry in maintaining the brand image, sustainability factor and making customers' lives easier.Herein the application of hydraulics, pneumatics, robotics and machines utility has beenconsidered to bring creativity and enhancing the energy efficiencies to safeguard theenvironment. There are several aspects which impact the product engineering and assist in costoptimization with high levels of resources allocation. For instance, the team of engineers at Fordhas completed a project at one of its factories in Cologne, Germany. Co-bots are placed with
around 4000 factory workers to work in collaboration for increasing the effectiveness. Thisinitiative helped the company in creating something new and using the minds to bring innovativefeatures.Moreover, Hémous & Olsen (2014) critiqued on the other side of innovation whichrequires both skills and capital and it is important for establishing the quality, productivity andsafety of the equipments, machines and transportation vehicles. It has been seen that due to lackof financial assistance, many good and innovative projects has not been able to get started only.Additionally, the automation in this sector might take up jobs and leaving the humans withoutany financial support. Over dependency on the automated vehicles and onset of bots wouldimpact as an unpleasant labour in all the types. People would become handicapped as has beenshown with the invention of smartphones. On similar grounds, this automation concept leads toinfluence the individuals and the organisations for using them to attain the economic benefits butadversely affecting the cognitive capacities and human's contribution at the societal levels. Thecapital expenditure is already high in this innovation concept and this is mainly due to the testingpart where skilled individuals are required.In context to the above, the role of engineers is important to implement the innovationplanning on the basis of systematic guidelines. The technical design is the conceptual stage tosolve the real life issues which is to be analysed in detailed manner. Innovation and engineeringgo hand in hand where the team focuses on building something sustainable, durable andcustomer driven. They aid in giving effective solutions to develop an optimum cost benefit ratioby applying the machine systems on automated levels. A group of multidisciplinary individualstogether put a strategic planning to create something new for achieving the revenues and profits.Their participation is integral in planing process including the allocation of resources andmanpower and designing the automated vehicles using physical skills (Gundling, 2016). Themathematical modelling techniques and the computer based drawing software has been usedideally for outlining the automation as an innovator conceptual framework adopted by theengineers. Thus, this automation innovation came into existence through employing both thehard and physical skills of individuals with technical knowledge and passion to build fresh andconstructive inventions.
