How to Know When It's Time to Automate:

Calculate Your ROI and Convince Your Boss

Automation equipment is increasingly becoming a solution for many common pressures, but often times it is difficult to decide when, where, or how to implement automation in your manufacturing environment. There comes a point in the life cycle of a company where forward-thinking manufacturers try to decide if automation is the right solution for them. With that thought, however, two immediate questions bubble to the surface:
  • How can I justify the cost (what’s the actual ROI)?
  • How can I convince the decision-makers at my company that this is right for us?

This white paper will cover:

  • Seven common pressures that reduce profit
  • How automation provides an ROI
  • How to use an ROI calculator
  • Four steps to convince the decision maker
