Reducing Planning Risks, Improving Economics and Customer Satisfaction

Experience shows that intralogistics systems are rarely planned in a systematic manner. Knowing planning principles and methodology helps reduce costly planning mistakes, identify suitable solutions, and right-size system components in a much shorter time. Especially large projects with strong competition among bidders and demanding material flows benefit from a coherent, consistent, and time-saving planning approach.

Concept in Brief: This seminar provides a thorough introduction to systematic planning of automated intralogistics systems. The seminar is structured along fundamental planning principles and, starting from a core set of data and parameters, enables participants to create complete solutions designs for automated warehouses.
