IDC Industry Spotlight: Enabling On-Demand Automation With Cloud Robotics
The world is changing rapidly, and now many manufacturing facilities are facing an even bigger labor crunch while being asked to create, distribute and ship at a faster rate than ever.
In response, many manufacturers are investigating how to quickly implement automation in order to deal with the need for increased capacity and shortage of workers, while at the same time not putting employees at risk with automation vendors having to do on-site implementation.
IDC, one of the leading industry analysts in manufacturing and supply chain automation, recently released a report highlighting some of the key aspects of on-demand automation enabled through cloud robotics, and how this approach compares with fixed automation and traditional robotics solutions.
If you are investigating how to rapidly introduce automation solutions without putting employees at further risk by vendors coming to your facility, this paper can help answer your questions on why on-demand automation with cloud-based robotics should be something to consider.
