A scientific approach to warehouse automation
from Supply Chain Management Review
Warehouse automation has evolved over the past few decades - from the use of sortation systems to conveyors/AGV’s to RFID systems to complex WMS and WCS systems. In recent years, the focus on being able to profitably cater to customer’s preferences and omnichannel fulfillment strategies has led companies to aggressively seek advanced automation and robotics solutions. The pressure of managing labor shortages in concert with wage hikes while improving speed and accuracy of operations to increase productivity per square foot are driving organizations to look at advancements in technologies to help them control the three big costs—labor, time and real estate.
