Connected supply chains using material handling automation are better equipped to adjust to changes and disruptions as they occur. Disruptions can be caused by a wide range of factors, including extreme weather events, unforeseen product demand, and beyond. The global COVID-19 pandemic is a prime example of an incident that heightened several ongoing challenges, including extreme shifts in demand, major changes in consumer behaviors, and growing labor shortages.
To create resilient supply chains, increasingly more companies are relying on actionable analytics to gain valuable insights into plant workflows. Material handling technologies, like Seegrid Palion autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), collect data while in operation, enabling facilities to further drive efficiencies and better understand the performance of their AMR fleets through enterprise software solutions. The future has arrived with global supply chains already experiencing the benefits of IIoT, and adoption is forecasted to continue growing.
In this eBook, explore:
- How material handling facilities are evolving to IIoT as a natural step in their innovation lifecycle and projections for what’s to come for the industry
- The trend of big data and actionable analytics, and how data is helping leading manufacturing, warehousing, e-commerce, and logistics companies become more agile
- How AMRs play in IIoT and create resilient supply chains that will thrive today and in the future
