And this is why there is no use for no-skill high school drop-outs.



Cool tech!

The guys who keep the robots working are busy I'll bet.

Can you IMAGINE what that systems costs and takes to keep it up & running??? I might want to be the guy that programs and repairs those robots.

Sounds like a good job for another robot.

Robots taking inky jobs.

Impressive.  

Thanks!

I order a lot from Amazon, and occasionally wonder how they process the orders.



I imagined it was pretty advance, but I never thought there would be as many robots as there are.



Amazing.

I am going to bet they rarely, if ever, have a breakdown.  I would assume they have service intervals and sensors to detect an upcoming failure.  They just put themselves over to maintenance whenever required.

How often do you think the employees set a chair on those robots and just cruise around?

Technology is cheap.  




But the guy who programs those things is very, very well paid.

So that's why I have 2 books I didn't order and still haven't got the one I did. At least they told me to keep them.
I'm thinking I'll get one more before the right one arrives
Link Posted: 4/25/2014 12:38:07 PM EDT
You still need a picker and packer.  The robots just bring the shelves to the picker.  You also need receiving, restock, returns and deep storage.  Generally, something like this would only be used for high-volume, small items.  It basically leans out the process by reducing travel.  Still very cool!

Look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth.

Since I've gotten my Ipad, I have't bought a physical book.  E-Book FTW .  My son starts High School in the fall and even the school is all E-Book.

Definitely a lean process through reduced travel, fast delivery and probably an error rate closing in on six sigma.

I don't think that's ever been in serious question.  There would be no need for stopping at intersections.  Cars would just go across without colliding.  Minor changes in speed during the approach would be all that is necessary.

Nice.

I really need to get a roomba for the dog hair.  Akitas shed, lots.  I've taken to naming the fur-balls that appear in corners, even though I vacuum 1x per week. (I get 2 dyson canisters per week of his hair when he blows his coat).

I used to hate the idea, but the more I think about it....the more I love it.  I could really use getting my commute time back, and I hate driving around other people...win for me x2.

Save money on gas too or could go totally electric....but more efficient since there wouldn't be any stopping/going/stopping/going/slowing/accelerating except for when you leave and when you arrive.  Go at peak efficiency the entire way.

It would also be much safer to go much faster.....

I can't imagine the exercise you'd get if they didn't have those robots.  But then again they would probably have some sort of electric cart to take you around.

A good reason why to set up Amazon Smile to donate to the NRA, SAF, or Ducks Unlimited.
