A few years ago, the ACME Manufacturing Company installed automated robots worth millions of dollars in its furniture assembly lines, believing that the robots would improve profitability and increase the efficiency of the manufacturing process. However, ACME lost many millions of dollars more despite the fact that it was able to make furniture faster using the robots. Why would this happen? What could have caused this situation? ACME then tried to increase profits by making more products that could be sold in a period. Should this tactic be used to increase operating income? Would this happen in service companies or only manufacturing companies? Explain.
