This book presents an alternative view to the technology-centred approach which dominates much of industry today, and contrasts it with a human-centred one. The discussion considers ways in which progress in microelectronics and information technologies will give rise to new kinds of production facilities, work organisation and manufacturing management in European industry. The long-term implications of new technologies for vocational training are also explored.
