The use of electro-mechanical aids in industrial management

From that eventful day in 1750 When electrical current was first discovered and through the succeeding years Where such famous inventions as the electric light, the telephone, and generation of alternating current, were brought into being, to this present age of electronic development, the electro~echanical aids available to industrial management have mounted in number. Many of the basic inventions of the Nineteenth Century, although they have been improved steadily, are accepted as commonplace. Take for instance, the telephone or the electric light, little thought is given to their importance in everyday life. It takes a sudden power failure to firmly indicate our dilemma. In the modern factory loss of power can result in stoppage of machinery, loss of time and costly damage. Many of the newer windowless plants depend on artificial light for their existence; thus, loss of light by power failure can cause accidents in addition to the foregoing results.
