What You Will Learn

Like the chicken or the egg there are two sides to Automation, and an argument of which should come first. Does Automated Storage or Automated Distribution come first? The answer to this question depends on your needs; some facilities will need automated storage, whereas some will need automated distribution, while some may need both. In this session we will take a dive into the differences of automation, and how, why, and where in your facility you can or should automate. We will address new automation tactics, technology, and the different levels of automation that can be used to optimize facilities.

Key Takeaways

How much automation do you really need?
Can automation be partial and still have an impact?
Which part of a facility should be automated first?
What will happen if you stay dormant in the universe of automation?
