Automation

Dear All,

This is to inform that soon bloggers will be replaced with automotive bots.. the bots just need  your theme genre, characters, the theme highlight, the location, the sponsor products and that is it…  a blog gets created automatically.

At at event Joy is bashed for this and all mention ‘creativity cannot be replaced with automation’

Joy ‘i agree.. hence this product is creatively designed to replace individuals and that way you will get interesting stories from the blogging product’

Maria ”is it not trying to push automation into heart of people’

Joy ”do you know we dont need clerks..  we need nothing.. just program an annual expense projection and map all your credit card to that product.. at each swipe, intelligently it will go to various budget category.. and no need to worry on tax returns.. it will do it for you’

Maria ‘so in nutshell creating more jobless folks’

Joy ‘common.. mechanism of planning life too exists.. automation can make your heart think and fall in love to only ones whose chemistry matches.. IoT interventions you know.. so…

Rose ”Joy.. wish you had done this before.. at least we both could have saved ourselves from not being with each other for even 1 day”

All burst laughing

Joy ”automation.. will do everything.. ”

Maria ”are we wishing to have robots coming as babies from womb?”

Joy ‘not really but there is a mythology belief that Abhimanyu was taught how to get into war when he was in womb.. the Indian mythology so”

Harish ‘he got caught and died too”

Joy ”innovation begins when a research fails…  just imagine your kid programmed by you”

Sofia ”Joy.. the conference ended way back.. all left.. why you so obsessed with automation”

Sofia suddenly sees a softened Joy..

Joy ”see the whole industry wants automation.. so am going by the trend.. however I feel the beauty of simplicity is being lost.. the hardwork becomes meaningless.. all want 24/7 zombies..”

Sofia kisses Joy in his lips..

Joy ‘not sure.. if this too will get automated one day”

Both burst laughing

 

Production House

John ‘It is absolute crazy.. 80% sit idle and 20% work. I am a ring master who neither owns the circus nor the monkies’

Rob ‘Why do you say so? All of us efficient performers. What can we do? If machine does all the work’

John ‘Why dont you measure performance? See how we can reduce handling time’

Rob ‘What is all that?’

John ‘Go and learn Six Sigma… Improve process capability..’

Rob comes out of meeting..and begins thinking

His girl friend Louisa comes to meet him..

Both of them are in Hyde Park…

Rob ‘What is productivity?’

Louisa kisses his cheek

Again she kisses her cheek

Hey in 10 seconds 2 kisses, 2/10 = 20% productivity (Output/Input)

John reciprocates and gives her 10 kisses ..

Hey in 12 seconds, 10 kisses  .. wow 90% productivity

John ‘Got it… i fail to understand why these guys talk so much jargon’

John ‘Hey what is cycle time?’

Louisa ‘Very simple’..

She hugs John..and kisses him again..

Louisa ‘It too us 5 minutes to hug each other. we conversed.. but didnt hug each other soon’..

She steps a bit further..

He suddenly hugs her and kisses her again

Louisa blushes

Louisa ‘In 10 seconds you hugged me..’.  See how your cycle time reduced..

John ‘Got it… then in our production house i need to reduce cycle time’

John hugs Louisa and kisses her 20 times..

John ‘Wow in 10seconds 20 times and hugs almost per second’

John ‘Last question’

Louisa ‘What?’

John ‘What is Six Sigma’

Louisa ‘Am confused what is it’

John googles and reads about Six Sigma and realizes everything has an upper and lower limit, so the cycle time need to be in those limits.. Need to monitor them daily.. wow’

John ‘It means if i attempt to kiss Louisa 40 times in 10 seconds, she will  break.. oh goodness’

So should not have exceptions.. once in a while fine

Next day

John ‘Rob after great debate on KISS THEORY, i realized what is SIX SIGMA’

Rob ‘Stop talking rubbish’

John kisses Rob’s cheek

Rob ‘Hey stop it…there and then’

John ‘Just kidding.. i understood it that way with my girl friend’

John ‘On serious notes, i realize our handling system outdated.. need to replace them.. got those tools.. replacement costs around 100K and we save 10 minutes per product. Leading to at least 1000 more products produced every day’

Rob ‘Oh goodness.. you understood at last what i wished.. thanks to your girl friend. what is she?’

John ‘She is an operations manager too.. and i guess she did her green belt’

Rob ‘No wonder she explained you complex subject in simple way’

Rob ‘Startups like us need to optimize cost continuousl’

John and Louisa meet in Union Square..

John ‘Louisa.. thanks you made a day’

Louisa ‘i want productivity, i want reduced cycle time’

John hugs Louisa tightly and kisses her 20 times in 5 seconds..

John ‘Hey your cheek all swollen’

Louisa ‘this is exception.. try to not have such hard exceptions’ and smiles

Dozing Story

Monty was dozing off at night during his call center stint till when  suddenly he thought of a back incident

‘Everything is fine when all is fine, Everything is in mess when the Operations Head is having foul mood. He comes up with a story of BPO without any operation head

A big pile of requests and Setu the team lead is sweating..

Setu ‘Even our 2nd lead is on holiday. what to do.. Am also feeling sleepy’

Mani ‘I have a trick to accelerate this.. ‘

Setu ‘What is it?’

Mani ‘Have written a script to automate a few steps. Knew coding’

Setu ‘Hey but we are from BPO. We will get screwed up if things go wrong’

Mani ‘Don’t worry, let us attempt’

Soon Setu finds the process time has got reduced..

Next day again they run the process.

Soon an 8 hour job completed in just 1 hour by 1 resource. All other BPO folks are idle..

Seeing this the other BPO guys get threatened.. They soon escalate to CEO that there is some tampering in code by Setu and Mani

Needless to say both Setu and Mani are fired…

Monty suddenly wakes up.. He realizes that he is the one who complained

Monty goes to Facebook and LinkedIn to check what Setu and Mani are upto

To his surprise he realizes that both have developed a product to automate the process and specialize in automation interventions in process. Their company is also funded by VC and having a US$2M turnover..

Monty opens his eyes wide open and washes his face in rest room and murmurs

‘Had I not complained, these guys would have been where they were.. Because of me they became millionaires and look where I am, dozing and writing a story’

Lessons Learnt ‘Never under estimate your subordinate who is talented and has potential to grow and don’t throw people out of lives without a reality check’
