What You Will Learn

There is increasing pressure on distribution, driven by rising costs, labor shortages, and ever-faster cycle times.
The good news: a new paradigm for the smart, automated warehouse is emerging, leveraging new technologies, advanced software capabilities that include self-running warehouse operations, new approaches to material handling system integration and optimization, and more.
In this session, we will:
• Present a detailed framework for the smart, automated warehouse of the future
• Discuss new distribution technologies, ranging from conversational Voice to IoT to simulation, AI/ML and more
• Explore new smart warehouse software capabilities, including autonomous operations, the “perpetual cart,” constraint-based planning and execution, and more
• Detail new thinking about material handling systems integration, especially for newer technologies such as put walls and mobile robots.

The smart, automated warehouse of the future will transform distribution operations – but is largely here today.

Key Takeaways

After two decades of mostly only incremental progress, a step change in warehouse software capabilities
An array of newer technologies in both software and hardware will be leveraged to drive productivity
The future is advanced order orchestration and self-running warehouse software with little human intervention
