The Lean Robotics Book: A Guide To Making Robots Work In Your Factory
Whenever you ask if robots could work in your factory, the answer you receive is always a hesitant “It depends.”
It depends on your factory, your team, which robot you choose, what you want it to do… and a whole lot more.
Those who have deployed robots in their factories know too well what that’s about. Even the most enthusiastic robot adopters can find their projects plagued by malfunctioning communication channels—among humans as well as robotic components.
How To Simplify Robot Cell Deployment?
The answers can be found in lean robotics.
Lean robotics is a systematic way to complete the robotic cell deployment cycle, from design to integration and operation. It will empower your team to deploy robots quicker and more efficiently than ever before.
Whether you’re a manufacturing manager or engineer, if you’re ready to make robots work for you, this book will show you how.
