    Top on-line 2021 Warehousing course for advanced warehouse practitioners

    Warehousing in the era of automation, digitalization and remoteness

    What is “good warehousing” in the current era of hyper-intensive and increasingly-complex customer behavior, respectively of epidemic-imposed remoteness? We believe we can support you in clarifying three key questions :

    1. Is it enough to be talking only about goods-to-person automation? Join this online course and discover deeper Industry 4.0 transformations, from robotics and IOT, to digital twins and machine learning.
    2. Is it enough to be talking only about WMS upgrades? Join this online course and discover new concepts such as WES and new modular, more agile WMS architectures.
    3. Is it enough to talk only about hardware and software? Join this online course and explore the concept of operator of the future: technology-augmented and data-driven.

    These topics will be discussed by two experts :

    • Stefan Rusu (Johnson & Johnson, Neoma Business School – France & Rotterdam School of Management – Erasmus University)
    • Jan De Kimpe (PICS Belgium, Logisol Pro, ART4L and KULeuven).

    They bring a completely new and innovative program.

    The program includes, besides the lectures of these instructors, a robotics entrepreneur as guest speaker. The course also contains two facilitator-led breakout sessions, for which we invite you to bring your own challenges or ideas, from your industry and/or company – we will explore it together and discuss how it can best be addressed by means of the technologies introduced during the training, including high level business case evaluation.

    Finally, to conclude the proceedings, we bring you a challenge of our own: how will warehousing look like in 2050? Allow us to set the scene and let’s envision the future together. Why is this important now? Weighting all the emerging technologies, we’ll all need to start preparing soon for the long run and invest time now in this topic. Warehouse technology is now at the point where you should be testing it out
