Automation: The Car Company Tycoon Game Windows
Automation allows the player to become an armchair CEO – to build their own car company from the ground up. Create and run anything from a boutique supercar manufacturer to a mass-market multinational mogul. With powerful tools like the Engine Designer, the player can create cars and their engines in mind-boggling detail. The grand campaign starts in the year 1946 and runs until 2020, with the main goal being to build a successful, renowned car company from scratch. All types of car manufacturers can be led to success if managed properly; building the right image over the years is key. The player’s tasks are to design engines and cars, to manage factories, production, R&D, as well as advertising campaigns. In game, time advances at the pace the player chooses and pauses automatically for events and occurrences. Automation is comprised of three major game components – the Engine Designer, the Car Designer and the Company Manager. These components are naturally strung together by the game’s goals, made to be user-friendly and intuitive to use. A multitude of tutorial missions, videos, and descriptive texts help car novices become experts. Almost infinite options give the player all the creative freedom to create unique cars with vastly different engines. Play the demo and preorder now at Automationgame.com.

Chapter 6: Automation and Human Work
The word automation, which comes from Greek, is a combination of auto, self , and matos, willing , and means something that acts by itself or of itself. This is almost identical to the modern usage where automatic means something that is self-regulating or something that acts or operates in a manner determined by external influences or conditions but which is essentially independent of external control, such as an automatic light switch. Automation is defined as the technology concerned with the application of complex mechanical, electronic and computer based systems in the operation and control of production. Automation as used in the ATA Human Factors Task Force report in 1989 refers to a system or method in which many of the processes of production are automatically performed or controlled by self-operating machines, electronic devices, etc. We define automation as the execution by a machine agent of a function that was previously carried out by a human. Automation is often spoken of as if it was just a technology and therefore mainly an engineering concern. Automation is also an approach to work and therefore represents a socio-technical intervention that needs careful consideration. In order to understand how automation relates to human work, it is useful to consider two simple examples, both taken from the history of technology rather than the present day.
