INDUSTRY.co.id - Boyolali, Human Resources Management General Manager of PT Pan Brothers Tbk, Nurdin Setiawan said that the implementation of industrial revolution 4.0 would not reduce the number of workers in his company.

According to him, the implementation of 4.0 will also be focused on increasing the output of companies engaged in the textile sector.

"So the implementation of the 4.0 industrial revolution has no effect on the reduction of labor," he said during an industrial visit at his office, Boyolali, Central Java, last weekend.

Nurdin added, even though he had done automation at his factory, a number of workers who served in the division would be transferred to the product assembly (assembly). This is to avoid termination of employment (PHK).

Nurdin hopes that the automation carried out by the company in producing can add output up to double, but also continue to use its workers. This is a form of efficiency considering that it does not need to add a new plant to increase its output.

"It means that we do not reduce the number of people but how our output can be many times so that with the current capacity of 90 million pcs per year without having to add a new factory, we can increase output," he said.

It is known that President Joko Widodo has officially launched the Making Indonesia 4.0 program at the 2018 Indonesia Industrial Summit (ISS).

Through the implementation of Industry 4.0, it is expected that the manufacturing production process will become more efficient, resulting in increased productivity and competitiveness.
