Organisations are increasingly coming to understand the value and benefits of an integrated robotic environment. According to a recent survey, nearly half of manufacturing facilities currently use robotics as an integral part of their operations. As the maturity and capabilities of robotic solutions continues to advance, the sector is primed for a significant uplift in adoption.
The aim of a well-designed integrated environment is to complement human capital. Robots aid in reducing the variance when performing repetitive tasks and help foster more reliable and efficient operations. With examples of these benefits so readily apparent across a range of sectors, companies are looking to move beyond the initial exploratory phases and are pressing forward towards greater levels of integration.
To address any risks around complexity and fragmentation, decision makers need to consider integrating robotics through a holistic lens. This means building an environment in which people, processes and technology are all connected. Achieving this goal starts with how you design your environment.
