Although robotics and automation technologies have not been used much in the past, their benefits are well understood and their ability to support zero-defect logistics processes and achieve new levels of productivity. The new generation of collaborative robots and automation solutions offer a real alternative to manual labor with significantly improved performance and enhanced sensing capabilities. It is clear that robots working in our parcel sorting centers, distribution centers and transport vehicles are no longer a "if" problem, but a "when" problem. Robot solutions will be more widely adopted in the next five years as cost performance increases. Future business leaders need to understand this technology, see it as an opportunity rather than a threat, and begin planning viable solutions to the growing pressures in today's supply chains.
We are looking at different ways to integrate robots into the supply chain. While we are far from discovering the full potential of robots, profile bending machines have been able to demonstrate that robots can work side by side with employees to support repetitive, physically demanding tasks in logistics operations. Company can be a physical robot with machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence, such as supporting software, the combination of the best use of automation technology to create new data we can still see the potential of robot technology by self-driving cars or automatic guided vehicles to use in the warehouse, enables the product to automatically move the robot to the facilities around, without the need for conveyor or large vehicles.
Looking to the future, supply chain leaders should have processes and infrastructure in place to embrace new technologies and the ability to manage more data using them. Although we made great progress in this field, but in the workplace and "public space" (not) behind the scenes of the regulatory framework of the development of robot technology, will be decided to robots and automation integrated into the main factors of the speed and degree of logistics in the future success of the enterprise needs to have the ability, can adapt to we see today the procurement, production and sales of the change of the acceleration, and use new technology to agile and flexible.
