What You Will Learn

State-of-the art goods-to-man technology is key to elevate your order fulfillment processes and gain a competitive advantage through decisive use of automation. But, it takes more than the latest technology to ensure operational success. Flexibility to accommodate for future changes in volume or order size is paramount for an optimal design. This seminar will take you through a case study of a new warehouse design to support a manufacturing and distribution operation. The case study will provide you with the right project approach and tools to evaluate if automation is right for your application. The presenters will also focus on often under estimated challenges associated with the introduction of automation. The project example will not only show how to plan anticipated increase in performance and a compelling ROI, it will emphasize the required change management.
