What You Will Learn

Automation is (rightly so) a buzz word right now, as labor and space costs increase, good labor is harder to find, and companies need to be closer and more responsive to their customers to remain competitive. This presentation will outline when to consider different types of automation, the dangers of over-automation and last-mile automation, flexibility and conversely rigidity of automation, associated costs and how to judge when automation is worth the investment.

Key Takeaways

You will leave with 5 things to consider at the start of your next automation project:
• how to plan for automation
• what is not generally provided by automation vendors
• how the project can fail and how failure can be avoided
• how to set realistic expectations within your organization and upper level management
• how to navigate the minefield along the way
