Evaluate Your Robotic Solution

Are you making the most of your manufacturing operations? Do you have jobs within your business that are hard to fill due to a shortage of skilled workers? Or perhaps you have positions involving simple tasks, and if these tasks were automated, your skilled workers could focus on value-add. If so, you could be missing out on a potential for increased efficiency and profits to your bottom line. For that reason, you qualify for a robotic evaluation from JHFoster.

We can help you discover opportunities for improvement with a robotic evaluation. Our team has the technical experience to identify processes that can be automated. Furthermore, our technical support can guide you through an over-the-phone conversation or a walk-through of your facility. They have conducted hundreds of onsite visits at plants and facilities helping others look for ways to incorporate new automation processes. As a result, these companies experienced dramatic increases in production capabilities.

5 Steps to Consider for a Successful Robotic Evaluation Implementation

  • Get company-wide support
  • Also, obtain consensus on what criteria makes the project successful
  • Next, have all parties agree on an acceptable tolerance for failure
  • Then, determine a budget with proper evaluation of costs and sales potential
  • Finally, have the right information ready in order to make a proper recommendation and cost estimate including 3-D part models; 2-D part prints with tolerances, material specs and notes; work definition; machine and fixture descriptions, machine manuals, and models and drawings

Frequently Asked Questions

Most Frequently Asked Questions and Answers About JHFoster's Robotic Evaluation Services
What are the key steps involved in a robotics evaluation?

1. Firstly, determine the capability and condition of the current equipment used.
2. Next in the robotic evaluation, measure the current capabilities of the system and its relationship to the changes in demand that occur in the system.
3. Thirdly, evaluate the applications in the system.
4. After that, analyze and provide solutions to correct applications that are not performing acceptably.
5. Next, create an existing process flow diagram which depicts the general arrangement of the system and the supply power and demand volume in all operating conditions.
6. Further, determine the total operating costs of the system.
7. Next, develop a prioritized action plan with costs and estimated installation costs for the proposed modifications to/creation of the system.
8. Finally, your last robotic evaluation step is to provide a complete audit report including existing and proposed process diagrams.
