What You Will Learn

Piece-picking demands are unprecedented due to the rapid growth of the e-commerce industry, and traditional solutions are difficult to scale to meet these demands. Today, robotic piece-picking is finally becoming possible to solve this problem and revolutionize warehouse order fulfillment. In this session, an overview of the state-of-the-art robotic piece-picking technologies will be provided. We will also discuss the various stages of automating a warehouse (from humans-to-goods to goods-to-robots to robots-to-goods). Finally, we will present ideas on how one should evaluate how robotic piece-picking can affect their warehouse operations. How can robotic piece-picking increase the efficiency of warehouse space? How can robotic piece-picking increase throughput capacity? What is the ROI of a robotic piece-picking system? Lights-out-operation warehouses are becoming a reality; this session will help you understand how to best leverage automation tools to keep your operations competitive.

Key Takeaways

• What is the state-of-the-art in warehouse automation, specifically in robotic piece-picking, and when is it ready for the real world? (The answer: Now.)
• How can robotic piece-picking affect metrics such as warehouse space efficiency, throughput capacity, and ROI, and how can you leverage these automation tools to keep your operations competitive?
