    Whether or not switching to robots is a success will depend on how quickly the company can replace the money spent on buying/building the robots in the first place.

Robots can carve etc. wood more efficiently than a human can. This would mean the company could increase its output.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • "In order to find out how things really are, one must understand the filters through which one perceives the world." Discuss and evaluate this claim.

    "In conclusion, each individual in this universe perceives things differently because everyone has different capabilities in their senses on how they can interpret things using their senses. In order to understand and find out how things really are in this world, we have to be able to differentiate with our minds what is right from what is wrong, meaning what is real and what is deceiving. We must recognize what information we are gathering and how we interpret them within our minds, whether we want to reduce the amount of information that is given to us or whether we want to overcrowd our brain with unnecessary information. Our senses can clearly deceive and trick us (optical illusions or hallucinations), but when a person is experienced and know how to differentiate reality and fantasy, then they are considered to be open minded and will know how things really are in our universe and how we perceive things. "If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thru' chinks of his cavern." William Blake (1757 - 1827)"

  • Some managers believe the most effective means of increasing productivity in a business is to increase the wage of the employees. Discuss this view.

    "In conclusion, increasing the wages of employees can be effective in increasing productivity but may not be the most efficient method as it can have its problems and drawbacks therefore other methods should be considered by a business wanting to increase productivity. In my opinion I think that both financial and non-financial techniques should be used side by side to increase the productivity levels of a business and if a business is seriously looking into increasing their productivity by large amounts it should look into escalating productivity through its capital. Claire Newby, Business Studies."
