Light and Heavy Manufacturing

Finding and retaining employees is a challenge…especially in a manufacturing environment.

The Manufacturing Institute found that 22% of skilled manufacturing workers (2.7M employees) are retiring over the next decade.

Plus, industry growth will require companies to add 700,000 skilled employees during this same time. This means the manufacturing industry needs a total of 3.4M workers and is going to fall 2M workers short.

What if you could ease the pain of staffing shortages with automation?

Automation and robotic technology solutions which can cut direct labor cost and reduce the reliance on a workforce by automating high-volume, repetitive tasks.


CHALLENGES:

  • The industrial revolution is driving use of smart manufacturing, robotics and artificial intelligence- manufacturers must adapt or face failure.
  • Fork truck maintenance and downtime causes major operational disruptions.
  • Low unemployment and unappealing nature of the work causing worker shortages.


THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:

  • Do we have issues with extra stock being available around assembly areas?
  • How are we managing the variance in size and weight of our SKU’s?
  • How much valuable space is our battery charging infrastructure consuming?
  • Are there processes in my operations that we could be automating to utilize people elsewhere?
