Industry 5.0 — the fifth industrial revolution — places workers in the middle of the technological advancements occurring throughout the supply chain. While Industry 4.0 focused on the internet of things (IoT) and interconnectedness, the real value comes from putting workers in the middle of these technological evolutions.
By keeping workers at the center of the conversation, Industry 5.0 enables strong collaborative efforts between humans and robots, provides the foundation for the rise of the worker-centric DC, and ultimately results in a happier, more productive workforce.
In this live, interactive webinar, James Hendrickson, director of product & offering management, Honeywell Safety & Productivity Solutions, will explore:
How workercentric solutions accelerate DC productivity
Why technology in the DC will propel tomorrow’s mobile workers
The trends and investments that can boost the performance of your DC operations
