Installation and Commissioning
Installation and Commissioning of an Automated Material Handling System is a complex and challenging task.
A detailed project plan has to be created looking at the engineering and manufacturing schedules and then typing up the delivery dates with the civil building development plan to ensure building progress is in line with availability for installation schedule.
Also, the engineering process has to align interfaces and control gates between different subsystems and the WMS, but also between the equipment and the building itself.
This attention to detail or rather a miss on this can lead to significant rework and time lost on site.
And this is before you start the actual site work.
At site the requirement to Install complex systems to a very high degree of accuracy (+/-1 mm) while working with tonnes of metals and KMs of wires, rails, and conveyors means that you need a very professional and accomplished Site Engineering team.
And all this has to be done with highest commitment to Safety, as you have people working with heavy loads and significant heights.
Once the physical installation is over, all individual sub-systems have to be tested and calibrated and then control interfaces between systems have to commissioned using Warehouse Control Systems.
At the end the full system WMS, WCS, Controls, and Hardware has to work together and then has to be tested for workflows and performance.
This is a complex business and we take great pride in being able to manage this complexity for our Clients.
