What to do before introducing robots to your production?
It is exciting when you realize that the implementation of automation can benefit your business. So, now that you are ready to implement robotics to your operations, what do you need to do? The most often overlooked step is understanding how to introduce robots to your production.
Step 1: Optimise
Look at the complete idea of the business and understand every process in every detail. Assess how to apply robotics correctly to maximize the potential of your business. Define clear objectives and clean up any redundant processes that may be slowing your operations
Step 2: Modelling
Model the operations based on humans but with better and faster efficiency. Calculate the output of both and compare while making the final tweaks on where you need to change or improve. This is to guarantee the dependability of the output amount and quality during the automated process.
Step 3: Human support
A common misconception is that robots will replace the human workforce. And this is one of the reasons why humans fear automation— fear of losing jobs. In reality, robots or automation works best alongside humans. Having employees onboard with robots can ensure a smooth rollout.
Step 4: Tracking progress
Once automation is implemented, monitor the execution of the new process. Track all ROI and results of your new robotic solution. Constant monitoring will identify any issues that need to be resolved quickly.
