high-thoroughput

folk etymology for "thorough" and "through"; adjective
Describes a process that has been sped up by the use of robots; probably synonymous with "high-throughput."
 
The original word was "high-throughput", which was coined to describe a high-efficiency robot-assisted process. People have since then confused the word "through" with "thorough," which they probably think describes the thorough nature of work done by high-throughput methods. This was originally a misspell that has been used more frequently on the Internet as the word "high-throughput" came to use in the general public.
Etymology : From the word "high-throughput" and replacement of the word "through" with "thorough"
