What You Will Learn

As the installed base of MFCs continues to grow, key questions that faced early adopters are being answered. The automation systems that deliver the best combination of density, flexibility and throughput have been clearly established; design and implementation processes refined; and critical software capabilities understood. Now, as the trend continues to build momentum, it’s becoming clear that, while small in footprint, MFCs could have an outsized effect on the retail supply chain and the future of retail.

In this session, Swisslog’s VP of E-Commerce/Retail, Colman Roche and VP of Sales Consulting, Drew Forte, will share best practices and learnings from market leaders to streamline MFC design and technology selection. Looking beyond the MFC, they’ll outline the steps organizations can take to minimize the impact of MFCs on upstream processes and tailor upstream processes to improve MFC efficiency and utilization.

Key Takeaways

• Automation technologies that have proven most effective in MFC environments
• Best practices from market leaders deploying MFCs today
• How MFCs impact the rest of the network
• Emerging deployment strategies that will expand the use of MFCs to new industries
