What You Will Learn

Modernizing your warehouse automation system is a cost-effective way to adapt to the new and changing world of logistics. KPIs and drivers, including unsatisfactory service or support, safety/compliance issues, obsolete equipment/software, reliability/performance issues, or business changes need to be defined. This gives you the chance to redefine your ROI: Retrofit, Optimize, and Improve. This presentation will help you understand how modernizations tailored to your KPIs can breathe new life into your older equipment while bringing a new level of efficiency, as well as take advantage of Industry 4.0 and change your view to grow to ROI3.

Key Takeaways

• Identify the drivers for modernizing your automated material handling system and the path to get there so you can extend the life and efficiency of your system without the high cost for installing an all-new one
• Learn how to make intelligent, informed real-time decisions based on the right key performance indicators (KPIs) with your conveyor and AS/RS-based automated system in order to prepare your operation for Industry 4.0 — cloud-based systems, big data utilization, predictive analytics, smart labor management and more
