Being prepared for the worst will ensure you’re not caught off guard when things hit a minor snag.
3. Stay True to Lean Robotics
The best way to optimize your deployment is to follow the principles of lean robotics. Focus on people instead of robots. Monitor the output of your robots, keep waste to a minimum, and leverage the skills you have available.
Your team members will be far more welcoming towards robots in the factory if they feel that their safety and job security are being prioritized.
Think of your robotic cells like a small business; this will help you focus on maximizing value in each of these self-contained cells. Reducing waste will also keep your manufacturing floor efficient and allow for smoother deployment.
Finally, leveraging the skills you have available will strengthen your deployment by decreasing reliance on external resources.
Keep these tips in mind as you move into future deployments, and you’ll ensure a bright future for all your robot initiatives.
