Bastian Solutions President Aaron Jones Discusses Future of Material Handling


Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/08/2015 -- President of Bastian Solutions, Aaron Jones, was recently interviewed by Todd Schnick of IntrepidNOW regarding manufacturing automation in material handling. The podcast interview titled, "Aaron Jones: The Future of Material Handling," explored recent automation trends in the supply chain.

Jones explained, "We now have some goods-to-person technologies that are bringing operators products to their fingertips every 3-4 seconds. The technologies are pushing operators and the workforce to complete their tasks in the most expeditious manner as opposed to operators pulling. The rate of adoption is amazing. From an innovation standpoint, I need to mention the development of robotics. The price point has gone down, and the performance has gone up. It is getting very hard to combat the benefiting costs analysis when considering high-end automation."
