Cater to demand

Sometimes, we just have to admit that some things are simply beyond our control. We can come up with several different graphs and charts to set a guideline to what the future forecast could be. However, that does not mean that our predictions would always be correct. Consumer demand fluctuates all the time and we just have to cater to that.

I think a lot of people in the industries that are heavily reliant on production lines and factory work are all looking to automate to a certain extent to ensure that they are at their most efficient. What I think is that there will be a need for skilled warehouse and factory managers who are able to understand such technology and keep them running smoothly when exceptions come up. I'm pretty sure that while the computers can replace the human hands that work, they're likely to break down if there are special  circumstances!
