Sana Ali Applications Engineer for Seegrid Profiled in Industrial Engineer Magazine
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2013 -- Seegrid provides robotic solutions to manufacturing, warehousing, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, retail, consumer packaged goods, automotive and 3PL industries. It also brings robotic industrial trucks and robotic vision-guided technology to the material handling industry. Seegrid technology transforms industrial vehicles into unmanned, automated pallet trucks and tow tractors that operate without the need for costly automated-guided vehicle guidance systems.
Sani Ali, Applications Engineer for Seegrid Corp., was recently interviewed by David Brandt for the December 2012 magazine of the Institute of Industrial Engineers. Ali determines system requirements, product selection, pricing, customer operational modification recommendations, and proposal generation for potential Seegrid Corp. customers. She provides support to the Seegrid sales team by assessing customer sites and assisting with customer presentations. Her position requires day-to-day interaction with sales management, sales, engineering and potential customers.”
Ali noted, “A perfect day at work would be installing robotic trucks at customer sites. This would involve a detailed application analysis performed prior to the install; the analysis consists of determining the justified number of robotic trucks at the location based on throughput as well as the return on investment for the robotic trucks. Once a customer purchases our robotic trucks, the installation phase begins, which requires hands-on interaction with the robotic trucks, such as setting up location identifiers and adding controlled behaviors such as horns/honks/pauses into the human interface of the robot.”
