There has been a steady rise in activity and interest from investors in lights-out manufacturing in the past five years. As more tasks become automated across manufacturing, these environments will rely less upon manual human labor. In some cases, the ultimate goal is “lights out” manufacturing, a methodology in which manufacturing is fully automated and requires no human presence so that the lights and even ventilation can be shut off, hence the term lights-out.

Our report, “The Path to Lights-Out Manufacturing”, explores the roadmap for automating different types of manufacturing tasks, including the robotics technologies involved, the main drivers and barriers for automation, and a lights-out manufacturing timeline for different manufacturing tasks.
