Made in Germany

“Made in Germany” refers to goods imported from Germany. In August 1887, the British Parliament passed an insulting trademark law clause, stipulating that all goods imported from Germany must be marked with the words “Made in Germany”, in order to distinguish low-priced and low-quality German products from high-quality British products. This is also regarded as the origin of “Made in Germany”.

Today, 131 years later, the historically tempered “Made in Germany” is no longer a label of counterfeit inferior copies. Synonymous with quality products.

Germany has entered the post-industrial era. That is to say, there is no natural person in a factory, and all the processes from feeding, production, quality inspection, finished product packaging, and cargo stacking are all completed by machines. Almost only one person monitors the entire workshop to complete all production. As an “operator”, he is actually an engineer himself. He only needs to press buttons and troubleshoot regularly.

Automation is to hand over repetitive and error-prone things that humans are not good at to robots.

What are the characteristics: The factory is completely produced by the machine itself, and the role of people is visualized in two ways: one is to make production planning and to issue production instructions; the other is to give hands to the machine to help keep the production line running efficiently and reliably.
