Event description


SCRt CIWG | The Warehouse of the Future – balancing people and technology

Host to be confirmed.

Despite today's availability of state-of-the-art tools, metrics, and methodologies to increase the effectiveness, accuracy, and overall productivity of warehousing, the bottom line is that we still rely on the performance of people in many warehouses today.

More than two-thirds of warehouse managers say people are the top priority in their operations, even as technology continues to make the headlines.

Far from replacing people with automation, the most efficient warehouses are those that use technology to make their workers more efficient.
With the rise of wearable technology, voice-controlled picking, heads-up displays, and connected glasses, people will remain an integral part of a warehouse’s success.
For that, the skills of the warehouse staff will need to develop in line with technological advancement.

The scope for the session will focus around:
• Balancing technological change with the right resources
• Cross-functional interaction
• Engaging employees
• Driving change
• Key measures
