viastore systems New eBook Addresses Manufacturing Technicians Support on All Levels of Automation

viastore Systems recently released a new eBook titled, “15 Myths About Warehouse Automation, Debunked.” The eBook is a compilation of the 15 most common myths about warehouse automation, debunked with facts. The twelfth myth is: The in-house service technicians will not be able to maintain and support sophisticated automation technology. The fact is that in-house technicians can be trained to support an installation; different levels of service and support contracts can be negotiated with the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), or systems integration firm. In a study conducted  by Peerless Research Group for Modern Materials Handling magazine, “Reader Survey: Maintaining the Automated Warehouse,” 46.3% of automation owners rely on internal staff to maintain the equipment, 17.9% outsource those tasks, and  34.7% deploy a “hybrid” approach—handling some maintenance internally and  delegating the rest to a third party.
