Council Post: Software Companies: What Do Your Customers In Supply Chain And Manufacturing Want?


So before we come up with solutions on efficient manufacturing strategies and optimizing the supply chain, we need to understand the problems plaguing our customers. The supply chain starts with the raw materials delivered from the supplier to a product/solution manufacturer and ends with the delivery of the finished goods to the customers. Every manufacturing and supply chain company requires automation, and robots are a great way to resolve the efficiency and labor problems that these industries face on a daily basis. However the application of robots in facilities are numerous (and usually needed at the same time), whether that means machine tending, material handling, receiving, shipping, assembly or packaging. Say a package is coming for assembly two days after the machine manufactures it, and the AMRs pick it off the shelf, it would be beneficial if that information was available beforehand for effective planning and optimization.
