We hear from leading academics, industry insiders and technology experts about what’s working, what’s not – and what’s next.
Each Master Class topic is presented in five 30-minute classes over three weeks – on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tune in live and take part in the Q&A session or watch the recording later at your convenience.
There is no charge to attend. The series is brought to you by Körber Supply Chain. Our latest masterclass series is the AMR Series (Autonomous Mobile Robots).
Session 1 – 9th November 2021
Addressing new market challenges with autonomous mobile robots (AMR)
In today's online economy, warehouses experience constant pressure to accommodate rising order volumes, increase throughput and reduce order cycle times. Join John Santagate for a discussion about today's market dynamics, and how autonomous mobile robots (AMR) can help by introducing a flexible, agile approach to warehouse automation.
Session 2 – 16th November 2021
Making the most of AMR: use cases and technologies
Autonomous mobile robots (AMR) are one of the hottest new technologies in warehouse operations. But what are the best applications for AMR, and how can your warehouse benefit from them? Join Matt Gregory to learn about typical use cases, different types of AMR and the best fit for common workflows like goods-to-person and person-to-goods.
Session 3 – 23rd November 2021
Off to a good start: Achieving a smooth AMR rollout
Once the decision for AMR has been made, the next challenge is often the deployment: how can you ensure a smooth rollout of the new technology? In this session, Carl Oreback explains how to prepare for the introduction of AMR in your facility, key steps to follow during deployment and how to avoid typical pitfalls.
Session 4 – 30th November 2021
Debunking common myths about AMR
AMRs are still a relatively new technology in warehouse operations. As a result, there are many questions and some misconceptions around their use and benefits. Join Fabien Guerrero to learn why the deployment and use cases of AMR don't have to be complex, why their total operating cost (TCO) can be surprisingly economical and how AMR are a good fit for many smaller warehouses with manual operations.
