1-page single space.
Your classification team has been asked to perform a job analysis addressing the increased use of robotics in a manufacturing environment. Some of the employees’ assignment in the department your studying are becoming more technical and sophisticated. On the other hand, some of the employees’ tasks are increasingly repetitive, as well as mentally and physically taxing. Where would you start in analyzing the job family, developing the minimum requirements, for each job classification creating relevant job specifications? 
Include the following points in your answers:
1- Consider the current trends of technology in manufacturing, what would be the composition of the classification team would you need to explore the plant’s talent needs?
2- How would you assess your current talent pool’s abilities to meet the job requirements?
3- What challenges are you likely to face?
