Symbotic: Disruptive Technology Change in Distribution Center Automation technology automation

by Trần Hào



Dr. Larry M. Sweet, Chief Technology Officer
There has been a dramatic increase in investment by both venture capital and strategic investors in new robotics technologies for supply chain automation. These investments have been driven by rapid changes in expectations for consistent, fast, flexible consumer experience across all channels. Traditionally, automation and associate order fulfillment software has been optimized around a limited set of products (or SKU’s) and for the requirements and constraints of a specific channel between manufacturer and consumer. This may result in different, and potentially incompatible technical solutions being implemented in the same distribution center. This has been happening for some time. What is new is the expectation that the retailer provide a consistent, and hopefully superior, consumer experience, regardless of which channel is most convenient for the consumer to use. This presentation will cover how evolutionary and disruptive technologies aimed at addressing these challenges – principles of operation, how the technology has evolved, and key performance metrics for alternative approaches. Technologies range from traditional robotics and non-robotics material handling approaches, to more disruptive use of autonomous mobile robots, collaborative robots, with increased sensing, planning, and intelligent functions. These approaches are evaluated and optimized effectively using discrete event simulation. Examples using AnyLogic 7 will be provided in the presentation.
