Your machinery and your people are two of your biggest costs. Add a worldwide pandemic to the mix, and manufacturers are looking to automated solutions for more resilience to disruption in the future. Implementing more automation has been a growing initiative, but COVID-19 has upped the ante in working to better prepare to keep production going even amidst crisis.
Worker Safety is Paramount:
Labor pressures are nothing new, but COVID-19 has made labor-related issues even more challenging. “Social distancing” was not a known term before the pandemic hit. Now, the term is everywhere and manufacturers are needing to implement strategies to maintain more space between workers. Manufacturers are doing everything from shutting down plants to staggering shifts, to changing production line layouts to alternating breaks. Unfortunately, with a lack of options and smaller staffing, continuity to maintain throughput has been difficult for many manufacturers.
Automation offers the options needed to manage workflows even during a situation such as the coronavirus crisis. That is why despite budget shortfalls and declining productivity, many manufacturers are leaving room in the budget for investments in Automated Solutions as a longterm strategy for stability. There’s never been a time that more clearly highlights what NOT automating will cost you.
