Lab Automation Brings ROI within 3 Months
Engineering labs are often the most dynamic and challenging environment that automation brings significant savings and benefits.
To justify an automation project, managers should not only look at labor savings but also look at equipment utilization and significant improvements of global operations. Many customers are reporting 80% of utilization vs lower than 20% without automation, and cost savings of $500,000 per year per ROME. So cost is a no brainer.
The challenge is often change and risk associated. The best practices involves planning, start small and build a scaling plan, proper benchmarking of savings and benefit with management and finance team's buy-in, implement the first step with 100% clarify and get to the users swiftly, etc.
