A Romanian in the auto industry produces 3 cars per year, against 16 as a Spaniard does
Manual work which replaces robots and wiring manufacture, not electronic ones take down productivity in the case of Romanian auto employees.
As for car production, a Romanian employee produces annually on average three cars against 16 as a Spaniard does. The analysis is made at the level of the whole auto industry, and the difference between the Romanians and the Spaniards is given among other by the fact that locally there are produced mainly parts, while in other countries the focus is on cars, the people in Ziarul financiar write.
‘When we speak about the auto production, we have to look at the level of robotisation which in Romania is lower than in western Europe. There are factories where there is no human being only robots while in our country there are many employees doing manual work. For parts, it depends on what they produce. The producers of wiring use many people,for example’ Gabriel Sicoe said, vice-chairman of the Association of Automobile Constructors in Romania (ACAROM).
For example, in Dacia in Mioveni the degree of robotisation will increase from 5% in 2014 to 20% next year when the second generation of SUV Duster gets into production.
Until then, the number of cars produced by each employee in the industry gets lower. The lack of a third auto constructor as well as the production kept at a low level by Ford in Craiova together with a reduced level of robotisation in Dacia and the presence of many wiring producers on the local market led to the reduction of the report between the total number of employees in the local auto industry and the car production from 2.9 new vehicles per employee in 2013 to 1.8 last year, according to the ACEA data.
