Viastore Systems New eBook Addresses How to Prevent Automation Failure


Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/15/2016 -- viastore Systems recently released a new eBook titled, "15 Myths About Warehouse Automation, Debunked." The eBook is a compilation of the 15 most common myths about warehouse automation, debunked with facts. The eleventh myth is: Another operation's warehousing automation installation failed, so they all fail. The fact is failure happens. Whether the failure results from budget overruns, unadopted change, untrained personnel, or an installation that does not deliver the promised throughput, the cause can usually be traced back to a lack of communication between the operation and the supplier/integrator. Regardless of the type or extent of automation, it is imperative to thoroughly evaluate the supplier options. Consider more than just budget. Key factors should also include delivery date, openness to ideas from both sides, other successful installations, performance accountability, and post-installation support.
