Hands-on Work from Home
People use an Internet connection to work from home that doesn't require physical presence or labor. What about the hands-on work, such as manufacturing?
Is it possible to let people work from home and deliver manufacturing jobs?
But, during my childhood days, I remember seeing a lot of manufacturing and hands-on physical work done at home!
That was in the early seventies, i.e., 1970s.
There was no electrical connection in our locality. Electrical connection reached only on the main road. People living beside the main road, and who could afford to pay the installation charges, got their electrical connection.
Most families in the locality didn't have an education. Some adults had full-time jobs. The stay home adults, who had some skills, used to do different hands-on work, such as stitching, making paper packets, potteries, artwork, etc.
In those days, no households in our locality got electricity and phones. But, work from home used to be in practice by physical connections between the employers and the skilled contract workers at home.
I had seen many homemakers (housewives, stay home dads, elderly widows) stitching dresses, such as blouses, frocks, etc. in their homes.
The tailoring shops used to supply the cut dress materials to these workers at home and collect the finished dresses back.
These are real manufacturing work from home, which are continued in many small-scale manufacturing and hands-on work. When facilities developed, they started using phones, electricity, and the Internet for fast communication.
Hands-on work can't be executed remotely. It has to be done by skilled people by their hands. Hands-on work is impossible via the Internet connection.
The good thing is that working from home is in practice by stay home adults who hold the required hands-on skillset.
I saw such work from home during my childhood days in the 1970s.
Even now, some skilled workers render hands-on work from their homes.
Hands-on work from home has been in practice for many years.
Hands-on work from home is not the same as online work from home.
Hands-on work produces a variety of consumer products.
Supplying work materials and collecting the finished work products have been performed with physical supply chains.
The Internet connection and phones indeed help in the communication processes of managing such hands-on work from home.
