O impacto da automação microeletrônica na organização do trabalho em duas montadoras brasileiras
This paper shows that the world strategy of the automobile industry has deter-mined the modernization of Brazilian automakers. However, considering the real capital/labour relation in Brazil, the introduction of microelectronic equipment in production process not only has been concentrated on the production “key-points”, but also takes place in a quite lower level than the same plants in highly industrialized countries. The adoption of this technology has reinforced the of the Scientific Labour Organization. We can identify the extension of line concept inside the factory, as well as the deterioration of labour quality and increase of labour intensity.
