Bastian Solutions Reports Goods-to-Person Automation to Increase 20 Percent by MODEX 2016
Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2015 -- System Integration News, a weekly e-newsletter, sponsored by Bastian Solutions brings important and interesting information to those in the material handling, automation, goods-to-person systems, wearable AR technology, supply chain software, robotics. From best practices to industry data, this weekly communique reports trend data, process improvement, and technology evaluations and profitability.
As recently as this past March at ProMat 2015, warehouse and DC managers still had a pick of experienced labor at reasonable wages. Now with a rapidly improving economy, wages are occupying a larger share of warehouse expenses and quality, experienced labor is in short supply.
The automation solution allows for workforce optimization. A Goods-to-Person modality permits less walking, better ergonomics, and allows the most experienced workers to stay super-productive.
By MODEX 2016 in Atlanta (Bastian Solutions Booth #3779), the tightening workforce will be in steady demand, and a growth rate of 20% in Goods-to-Person technology is predicted.
