What You Will Learn

Today’s customers expect same-day and next-day delivery guarantees. When they don’t get what they want, they can find another source with just a couple of screen taps or mouse clicks. For this reason, good inventory management—accompanied by the ability to move inventory through the supply chain at a high velocity—has become a must-have in today’s business world. As autonomous robot hardware and software continues to improve over the next 10 years, robots can provide a competitive advantage for companies. Through improvements in sensors, dexterity, artificial intelligence, and trainability. However, the day when “robots take over the universe” isn’t coming anytime soon, but the idea of humans and robots working side by side is already coming to fruition in factories and on warehouse floors worldwide. Autonomous robots can be used to improve the speed and accuracy of routine operations, particularly in warehousing and manufacturing spaces; work side-by-side with humans for added efficiency; and reduce the risk of employee injury in dangerous environments. We will discuss how robots and advanced technologies are merging into day-to-day operations and helping organizations overcome the challenges above, what it means to have a Bionic Supply Chain, and how this will affect you moving forward.
