The automotive sector is changing as a result of disruption caused by industrial automation and digital technology. Companies can adopt the most recent business prospects linked to industry 4.0 in their organization, including those that deal with autonomous driving, automated manufacturing lines, the auto supply chain, big data, the Internet of Things, quality management, the environment, etc. The degree to which people are satisfied with their jobs plays a significant role in this process because workplace stress is a common source of it, particularly for those working on production lines. Numerous studies on job conditions and satisfaction using conventional methods have been done, but they differ from digitalized industries due to a variety of factors, such as job security and a lack of technological knowledge and training, educational requirements, robotization, supervision, anxiety, etc. Stress management techniques are more effective for highly educated and younger people. This study addresses the issue of job stress among engineers and technical workers in the Telangana automobile industry as a result of automation and digitization. One way that ANOVA is used to examine the stress factors responsible for the drop in level of job satisfaction is through the use of a structured questionnaire on a sample of 100 engineers and operators to study the factors affecting job stress in the automobile sector. According to the conclusion, technical operators are more likely to operate in a traditional workplace and less likely to adopt an advanced work environment, and they also report feeling more pressured and unsatisfied with their jobs. In order to improve productivity and competitiveness, which in turn improves services and job satisfaction, it is also necessary to implement suitable training programmes and digital technology adaptation strategies.
