Impact of digitalization and automation on logistics and mill efficiency
Tony Leikas, CEO, Pesmel Corporation
Digitalisation and automation are profound trends that prevail despite economic uncertainties as they have the potential to contribute towards increased efficiency in industrial operations over the business cycles. On a process level they offer opportunities for improving operational performance, particularly in the area of logistics. Whether factories, warehouses, port operations or goods in transit, there is great potential for boosting the flow of materials.
This paper discusses enhancement of the supply chain in the metal industries through optimizing in-mill logistics and goods transportation. Implementation of automated material flow combined with applications of digitalization is demonstrated through examples where turnaround and waiting times can be greatly reduced.
