What You Will Learn

There is no surprise automation is on the forefront of everyone’s minds when it comes to optimizing warehouse operations. With consumers wanting more products and faster deliveries, you are faced with new capital investments for new and unfamiliar technology. You need a solution that gives you greater flexibility, increased SKU offerings, and more operational capacity in a way that it pays for itself. In this session, you will learn the critical return-on-investment (ROI) components that are making fully autonomous mobile manipulation robots (AMMR) a reality. The industry is actively evaluating mobile robots on reliability, capacity, performance and efficiency. But how should organizations determine ROI when considering fully autonomous mobile manipulation robots? In some environments, a human will beat a robot when matched up one-on-one in walk and pick applications. However, when you consider the system as a whole – enhanced processes, higher stocking density, peak demand staffing and overtime, increased SKU mix and count, accelerated fulfillment times, improved working conditions – a robot-centered operation is a strategic winner with a compelling investment profile.
 

Key Takeaways

It’s difficult to see the future with a transformative solution, even when a representative unit of that solution operates in front of your eyes. Understand the questions you need to ask to help build an ROI for optimizing your operations.
