Trending data in order fulfillment allows distribution center (DC) operators to identify patterns that can be used to prevent costly downtime. Visibility into these patterns within an organization can help pinpoint repetitive issues, such as jams on a sorter, and address underlying root causes. Honeywell Intelligrated is currently engaged with customers, gathering real data from their DCs and applying machine-learning algorithms in order to provide insights into asset performance, utilization, and productivity.
Labor augmentation is a key benefit to robotic technology. When performed manually, the dull, repetitive tasks of picking operations can lead to decreased accuracy. Relying on robotic technology allows for greater throughput and accuracy, while empowering manual laborers to take on jobs that are less-mundane. Learn how Honeywell Intelligrated’s strategic collaboration with Fetch Robotics provides distribution centers with autonomous mobile robotic solutions.
