Seminar Description (4,000 characters): As operations face unprecedented challenges, it’s easy to see the advantages of using semi- and fully automated solutions to increase productivity, address the labor shortage and reduce operator density in a warehouse. However, before jumping into automation, it is important to first visualize your operation’s current situation to optimize processes and procedures and determine the correct automated solution.
Warehouse operations data collected during the optimization process can reveal inefficiencies to guide future decisions about what specific intralogistics and automated solutions to invest in to help solve existing problems and visualize changes in a specific facility.
This seminar will cover automated intralogistics solutions that work together to optimize operational efficiency and productivity, including:
• Operator assist technologies
o Operator assist technologies increase operator proficiency, accuracy, and productivity, ultimately assisting in the optimization process by creating efficient labor processes and leading you to automation. And, they allow you to do more with less.
o Zoning and Positioning
o Pick to Light Systems
o AGVs increase efficiency and reduce costs by helping to automate specialized tasks or functions within a facility.
• Automated storage and retrieval
o Semi-automated high-density storage systems allow for maximum use of warehouse space, maintain selectivity between all levels and increases operational efficiency.
This seminar will highlight how:
1. The application of automation can likely make production and distribution processes quicker, easily repeatable, consistent and cost-effective.
2. An end-to-end intralogistics solutions provider can help customers best understand the data collected from the optimize and connect processes to determine the automated solution that meets their specific needs.
