Monroe, NC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/21/2014 -- John Hayes, Founder of NoRiskAutomation, is a 2014 Supply and Demand Chain Executive Pros to Know. Hayes suggested that all companies considering the purchase of automation, particularly automated guided vehicles, follow a four step process.
Four Steps to No Risk Automation
Step 1: Application Study and Analysis
Step 2: Specification Development
Step 3: Vendor Selection
Step 4: Project Manage
Hayes said, “For some companies evaluating automation solutions stop after Step 1; other prospective automation purchasers with less experience in the process of AGV selection require additional specification development assistance. Vendor selection is a way to ensure the inherent bias of vendors trying to sell their solution only is avoided, and finally, depending on the internal staffing, project managing the AGV implementation constitutes Step 4.”
