Balancing Workforce and Automation in a Disruptive Time
Tuesday, August 17; 10:30 am – 11:15 pm in Tennessee Ballroom D/E
Ecommerce fulfillment operations are being challenged to attract and retain adequate labor to meet fluctuating demands. Market conditions, including unemployment benefits and stimulus payments, as well as COVID fears, are dis-incenting many who would normally work as floor associates. Rising wages and fierce competition are additional headwinds. This has led to a surge in the adoption of automation and robotics to fight against “labor dependency.” But how do you strike the right balance? How much automation, and what kinds to invest in, and how much labor do you need? This session will address the factors involved in this important calculus.
You will learn:
- About the unsustainability of throwing more labor at the problem
- How automation can help you level out variations in throughput
- How the ROI calculus of automation and robotics is changing
- The evolving nature of the automation/workforce equation
