Drive supply chain efficiency with artificial intelligence and automation
Automation in warehouse operations is about identifying and automating repetitive tasks –loading/unloading, sorting & inspection, repair & repackaging, data entry, and manual storing of goods. Manual operations are prone to human errors resulting in delays, improper time & resource management, low productivity, and damage to inventory. Wipro’s Warehouse Automation solution applies autonomous technology to create effective supply chains, cut costs and adapt to the new standard operating procedure brought in by the pandemic. Industrial automation in the form of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), drones, computer vision, and robots forms the foundation of the solution. The system makes artificial intelligence (AI) enabled decisions to assist in planning, scheduling, simulation, and work management to drive efficient utilization of labor and resources. The solution addresses problems faced in labor-intensive operations such as yard management, inspection & sorting, warehouse management, and distribution center operations across verticals like consumer, healthcare and retail.
