(1) man without machine, manual production (manufactory),

(2) man and preset machine (manipulator), machine production,

(3) a man and a customized machine (a single-purpose machine), unit production,

(4) man and prediction machine (multipurpose machine), assembly-line production,

(5) man and independent machine (adaptive robot), automated production,
