Mills shared, “The ability to compete in new areas with this level of agility will be the key to unraveling chaos. As e-commerce continues to threaten the market with competitive products that are available nearly instantly, shifting consumer trends can make stocking shelves even more challenging. Automation has become a full imperative; COVID has magnified the need.” 

According to Mills, companies with better data and predictions control the business most effectively. Helping companies focus on proactive planning, rather than reacting to economic trends is a critical shift. Consumer demand metrics and improved supply chain analytics can also offer insights where additional costs are incurred and managed.

Robotics & Automation News, established in 2015, is one of the most widely read industrial publications globally.
