This webinar presentation will discuss Robotic Automation as to how it affects capacity, process, flow, LEAN, and adds value to an organization’s complex manufacturing processes. The recent robot install at Volvo Trucks, NA BIW will be used as the launching point for this discussion. Talking points will be tied back directly to the APICS Body of Knowledge as it pertains to an industrial manufacturing setting. You will learn how APICS principles still apply in the world of Robotic Automation.
