Next-generation DCs will combine robots with people in ways that are far more fluid and dynamic than traditional automated facilities. Warehouse operators face new challenges in coordinating and optimising the work of humans and their robotic coworkers.
This presentation will:
1. Provide an overview of the principal tasks and workflows that will combine robots and people
2. Describe how the addition of robots changes the ways in which picking and other processes are planned and executed.
3. Outline how AI tools can optimise and orchestrate people and robots to support DC objectives.
