The integration of Collaborative Robots in manufacturing processes has the potential to bring disruptive breakthroughs to many industries. This emerging area of industrial robotics has captured the attention of many due to the realisation that technology is now providing us with the reality of robot and human working side by side – not some time in the future, but today.
Pressure will be exerted at management level to implement this new wave of technology – and with good reason, realising benefits in manufacturing space, production output and product changeover etc.
But with the hype come misconceptions. In this course we aim to take a management perspective on this collaborative technology – giving you the tools you need to make that go/no-go decision.
At the end of this half day course you will have firm understanding of both the potential benefits and weaknesses of COBOTs. You will have encountered all of the key factors to be considered when evaluating potential COBOT applications and will gain a clear understanding of investment versus return.
