We live in a world where the most precious things are not wealth, power or control as some might have us believe. The most precious thing that every human being shares is "Time". Each and every person on planet Earth is faced with the same dilemma...time is limited. Our civilization has made remarkable innovations to help each of us spend our time more productively. Vehicles decrease the time it takes to get from place to place. Planes take us to the corners of the earth in a matter of hours. We are able to send greeting cards and pictures in a blink, through email and text. We are able to order a pair of shoes on-line, and then get them the very next day from clear across the country. Hand-held devices enable us to research and pull up, any type of data from anywhere in the world where there is connectivity. Even will all of this and more, we are still finding it hard to find time. Most professional's time is split between work, family and friends which leaves us with very little "me" time. It is in our nature as human beings to want to enjoy as much of our non-work time as possible.
Automation is another development designed to free up time for humans. When properly designed, implemented and maintained, automation can free up time for researchers to focus on the basis of their research while leaving repetitive tasks to an automated system. Labs that automate as many manual tasks as possible generally see a large increase in efficiency and overall employee morale by freeing up the precious commodity of time.
