It is pointed out that by 1960 both printed wiring and automation will be badly needed by the dynamic electronics industry. Outlined is the recent history of the swing to automation by the component parts manufacturer. Those attempts that have yielded less than uniform products, are laid at the door of lack-of-standardization. Some of the present standardization needs are enumerated. Stressed is the thesis that tighter levels of incoming quality are required for automation. Emphasis is placed upon the composite assembly approach using the ceramic base plate. The author concludes with the hope that in the near future some universally accepted system will evolve, so that a component-parts mechanization-increase can effect a total industry saving.
