Numerical Control Machining and the Issue of Deskilling. An Empirical View.
Zicklin, Gilbert
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v14 n3 p452-66 Aug 1987
Research on the effects of numerical control (NC) machining on the skills of machinists presents mixed results. Interviews with a small group of machinists experienced in both conventional and NC matching suggest seven major factors that affect whether NC automation changes the overall skill level. The deskilling hypothesis is not supported by these data. (SK)
