Reducing Planning Risks, Improving Economics and Customer Satisfaction

Experience shows that intralogistics systems are rarely planned in a systematic manner. Knowledge of planning principles and methodology helps to avoid costly planning errors, to find suitable solutions and to correctly dimension system components in much less time. Especially large projects with strong competition among bidders and demanding material flows benefit from a coherent, consistent and time-saving planning approach.

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