Automation Q&A: Overcoming challenges and driving strategies to transform your production capabilities

Physical automation is a relevant step to take when a machine shop wants to raise their productivity. When automating there is much to be gained, not only for companies with mass production but also and especially for shops producing low-to-medium batch sizes that vary over time. The big issue ends up being, how to combine high utilization of machine tools (low unit costs) with timely orders given all of the fluctuation in demand (batches), need to minimize work-in-progress, unexpected production errors and the challenges in production resource management?
