SCM Cutting Edge Concepts (3C): Economic Volatility Cometh and Robots are Ready

SCM Cutting Edge Concepts (3C): Economic Volatility Cometh and Robots are Ready

Buffeted by winds of economic and geo-political volatility, labor shortages, and fickle consumer behavior, the imperative for today’s supply chains to be more responsive and flexible grows only stronger.  Supply chain teams recognize that increasing the use of automation is essential to navigating today’s biggest challenges – and whatever comes tomorrow.

A recent survey by MHI, found that 32 percent of supply chain professionals reported that they are actively using robotics and automation in their operations – a number that has barely moved in three years.  What’s holding you back?  Cost?  How to measure ROI?  Knowing where and how to get started?

In this presentation, we’ll:

  • Look at what makes today’s robots different from traditional robots and why it matters.
  • Explore how one Fortune 500 company’s VP of supply chain introduced collaborative robots, to transform the ways in which the automaker produces and delivers its products.
  • Provide a road map for implementation that takes your organization from delivery to on-the-job in less than 30 days.
