Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Without a doubt, robotics has a crucial role to play in industrial firms, and in turn, in the overall economic development. Robotics and automation can hold the key to industrial companies’ progress and as such, for the industry to be enhanced, new technologies have to be adopted for increased productivity. In effect, the adoption of new technologies calls for the examination of the factors that could facilitate their proper and effective adoption and use. Robots call for the determination of innovative and creative ways to make use of technology in the hopes of differentiating the company from its rivals in order to ultimately achieve sustainable advantage. This paper aims to identify the factors influencing the behavioral intention to adopt robotics and automation among transformational companies in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). This identification is based on systematic literature review that lead to construct a conceptual framework for the proposed adoption of robotics and automation. The results show that there are main factors to guarantee the successful use and adoption for robotics and automation. These are perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, it infrastructure, subjective norm, top management support, financial support, training, readiness, efficacy, reliability, security and anxiety.
