Over the last few months, the world has been fighting back against an adversary that we can't see, hear, or smell. This enemy does not discriminate and can affect anyone, even if they take all the recommended precautions. This enemy, as you've probably already guessed, is COVID-19. This blog we'll be breaking down how COVID-19 is affecting international supply chains and why specific industry tactics like robotic automation have been on the increase.
COVID-19: Supply Chain Management
In the last few months, the world has had to fight back against something that humankind hasn't experienced in almost 100 Years. The COVID-19 outbreak that has gone from an epidemic to a pandemic is now shutting down major facilities around the world.
COVID-19: Robotics & Automation Increase
A development that's increased significantly since the beginning of this pandemic is the demand for robotic automation. As discussed in previous posts, correctly implementing robotics to an assembly line of any product can significantly increase productivity, as well as reduce human error. This is only possible because of the ability to mitigate disruption and enable specific aspects of the business to stay connected, across teams and systems, while maintaining customer support and offering stability in times of uncertainty. With COVID-19 continuously spreading, robotic automation is beginning to become increasingly prevalent within major manufacturers. Industry experts have pointed out that the implementation of robotics helps from both a production and workforce augmentation standpoint. Allocating as much work as possible to robotics, manufacturers of any kind are able to lower the number of people within proximity to one another and with the finished products.
