Service launched to provide support for manufacturing

22 November 2010

The Automation Advisory Service (AAS) has been launched to meet the needs of many companies by providing access to knowledge and expertise to ensure the most appropriate and cost-effective solutions are developed and implemented

The companies to whom the automation is aimed are those considering automation but who are wary because they lack the necessary in-house experience or sufficient trust in suppliers to make the investment with the confidence that the projected benefits and returns will be realised.

The AAS is led by Mike Wilson (President - British Automation and Robot Association) and David Bradford (formerly MD of RTS Flexible Systems) who have extensive experience of automation, from simple handling solutions to complex multi robot systems, across industry sectors as diverse as medical, aerospace and food, both as suppliers and users.

AAS initially offer an audit of the client’s existing manufacturing operations. This is focussed on identifying realistic opportunities to improve the productivity, consistency, quality, yield and potential for reductions in waste and rework as well as improvements in health and safety.

The results of the audit are compiled in a detailed report, highlighting the actions required to increase competitiveness and raise profitability, which is then reviewed with the client.

To ensure the client is able to implement these recommendations AAS then provides full support, including concept and budget development, business case development, specification preparation and vendor selection.

This support can be extended through project management until the system is fully implemented and operating to specification. By the provision of these services AAS is hoping to encourage more companies to consider automation and to ensure they remain competitive and profitable in the face of strengthening competition.
