Have any of the Democrats, liberals, socialist, Trump haters Etc ever stopped to consider for one single second the repercussions of shoveling tons of US currency on to the fire? Do they, or you if you cannot yourselves among that number, have any idea where it comes from?

Doesn't the government just print money 24/7/365? The country needs more money, so just make more and hand it out to everyone... what's the fucking problem

When you get that surprise email from HR, or the notice that your lifetime retirement pension can no longer be paid, don't fret everyone, the government will take care of you

^ and only then will you have the knowledge to comment on the economy being closed, as until this happens and while you are lucky enough to still have those automatic deposits every two weeks, you are simply not qualified to speak on the subject.... even though you think you are.

So CNBC’s authority on the economy is dumb fuck billionaire Mark Cuban?

Little wonder they’re just another fake news outlet.

You’re right Steve, there’s going to be repercussions down the road with all of the money that’s being printed.

Universal Basic Income is going to become a necessity

 

A good portion of the projects on my plant's 2021 capital plan involve my team implementing automation...

... It's not going away

Nope, GM is prime example of that. When they built the second generation of the Cruze at Lordstown, the built a brand new state of the art trim shop just for that car. The old trim shop had a conventional chain conveyor in the floor that pulled the carriers down the line. But in the new trim shop, they went with a new "skillet" system that instead of waiting for the job standing on the floor, you actually moved with the line standing on the skillet.

This also allowed GM to eliminate MANY material jobs because instead of fork truck drivers delivering parts to your station, a majority of the parts came down the line with each job loaded into bags. You still had parts being delivered line side but not nearly as many. They also eliminated many line jobs like loading seats, installing the front and back glass, and some others were now done completely by robots. They even had a giant robot to unload the trucks and put  the seats on the conveyor.

Now GM is building a battery plant out there in Lordstown to make batteries to power whatever they will be making in the old Lordstown plant. Those bastards were even shipping jobs out to Mexico because they said they were having trouble keeping up with the demand. Not being able to keep up is a good problem to have, because once you start shipping jobs out of the country, they don't come back.

Exactly. I've had projects trying to justify the insourcing of parts we make outside of the US and it's not easy to do...

Oh, pardon me. I thought this was about the free shit tax cut for the rich @ 1 Trillion $$s per year deficits before COVID.

Nope sorry you were confused; by the way, isn't it about time you just quit pretending that you have a conservative bone in your body? I mean seriously it's okay to come out of the closet.

Yeah you know I can't imagine that even you (or any of the board liberals ) actually believe it would be a good thing for every American to just sit on his ass 24/7 and wait on the check. Of course I guess the more people that feel that way the better it is for the Democrat Party and anyone else who would benefit from the collapse of the United States.

dismal attempt at a woodpecker flippity-flippity.

You're the one who has never done anything, yet 'FEELS he

is like a "god".

So, do you own the company or not?

It's very sad you seem to only be able to answer questions and issues with another question.

Typical woodpecker.

No, I don't own the company. It is the plant I work at. My plant. 

And the team the reports to me. And the project/spend plan I built for next year.

 

All to make the point that automation is happening. You talk about "experience" all of the time. What would you like to add here?

 

Try to read a thread without going off on a tangent to try and insult me. Whatever insecurities you have about yourself, I'm sorry. But realize time keeps passing even though you refuse to recognize it.

lol. No insecurities - a successful and delightfully happy life and accomplishments, and most of all, LOVE, and knowing

God is there...

I'm a happy camper.

You?

btw, woodpecker, the thread is titled "free sh** train" - not automation, so there's that.

See, what I do know, is that after a career of writing software, I have written some serious, complex

software in the manufacturing industry.

One time, I wrote a state of the art software that ran machines, two that the same time, from the software and a mouse. That included the GPIB card in the computer, and the IEEE card in the machine, and all the programming to communicate with both - along with the complex interface, that even included real time performance graphing, with the ability to superimpose a previous test's results' graph on top of it - included safety limits on the machine performance during testing, and complex security - it was a test that was classified as very "top secret" - huge advantage in the industry.....

see, the tests used to only be run via the machine keyboard, which failed eventually to work. The adaptation to run the tests via my software was necessary because of the serious proprietary work being done. No expert from outside could know.

Another time I wrote a software that analyzed giant databases to correct mistakes, evaluate updates, and reject duplicates - with a bit of "AI" analysis as to spellings, word usage, and plenty of rules...etc etc etc.

   The problem was, the team of analysts was concerned my software would make them obsolete. So, I arranged a meeting with the entire team, explaining that instead of them seriously stressing over humanly looking over multiple gig sized databases and comparing every record, my design would give them a dozen push buttons that would do that for them - so instead of three days of stress, it would take about 3 minutes - maybe 5 - but it included anomaly reports that would require human beings to research and verify.

   And it was a blue chip success, which is pretty good - since for months, other programmers' attempts ended in failure, and their code was crap, their structure was zero....

   for years I worked in serious R&D - like the machine running software, and other scientific software that took extensive work by experts, and made their jobs a hell of a lot easier.

   I wrote a software for a PHD in polymer science, from India, that calculated serious complex scientific equations - in subsequent many, many steps. he raised hell with me in front of my boss because my stupid problem kept giving the wrong answers.

Well, we were called in, and I calmly went up to the white board, and explained basically how I wrote all the calculations to be fool proofed dependable and accurate. He blew his stack, and ended up apologizing to me - and often paid for my dinner at his favorite indian restaurant. My design never failed. He had been making the mistakes for a few years.

Outside of that, out of high school, before college, I worked as a machinist, eventually ended up being allowed to run a CNC mill, but hated it, paid off my Chevy Belaire before I could train to program those things.

Outside of that, nah, don't know all that much about automation. But it still takes people to program, maintain, and install those machines.

   It's like the old B-52s on the flight line - one was called the "Thunder Turkey" that the two pilots often offered to take me up for a flight in one. I never did it - but the noisy plane was loud because over the decades, precision got more precise, and the same specs of constructing parts ended up not fitting quite the same as the old parts - so they were very noisy - which lessened over time as the parts worn in. We're probably talking tens of a thousandth of an inch, I think it was, but that was the explanation I got.

  Most all of us have decades of experiences that reflect who we are as people - you just don't know much, haven't lived much, it's sad, actually.

Follow the conservational flow of the thread. Automation was relevant. 

 

Labor jobs are going first. Not programming. Programming will start to get automated but down the line

None of that made any sense or contributed in any way. The fact you can't get through any back and forth without outbursts like that is what's sad

you're a sad person. You don't know anything, can't add much to any conversation,

you aren't experienced at life at all,

and you don't have a girlfriend...

or a boyfriend, and your nanny deserted you.

Must really suck. You really need to grow up.

I'd rather talk issues, but you cya by interpersonal bickering.

Advocating for your beakness is a weakness.
