How to successfully implement robot automation solutions

The productivity of UK manufacturing is behind our major competitors and we also have much lower utilization of robot automation. Many businesses have yet to realise the benefits that can be gained from robot automation and many believe the technology is not appropriate for their operations. Collaborative robots are generating significant interest but they are not always the most appropriate solution.

In this session we’ll cover:

  • The benefits of robot automation and typical applications

  • What does collaborative really mean and where should collaborative robots be used

  • Understanding how to identify good opportunities for robots

  • A strategy for the successful implementation of robot automation solutions

Then it look at some of the issues that are likely to impact on sector over the next few years, including the outlook for global trade in an era of rising protectionist pressures and the potential impact of Brexit. A key focus will be an analysis of the recent productivity record. Questions to be looked at include -what accounts for the UK’s poor productivity performance? Is the picture in the UK significantly different from elsewhere? And what is the role for innovation in boosting UK productivity and the performance of the manufacturing sector?
