According to John Hayes, President of No Risk Automation, “Without the need or incentive for advocating a particular automation AGV supplier, a comprehensive and objective viable pool of vendors can establish a fair, unbiased selection process. Instead of ‘making a solution fit the automation demand’ the opposite paradigm is developed. Vendor selection is expressly guided by the metrics, deliverables, cost-constraints, and objectives of the customer. The goal is to both exclude vendors lacking the specific project automation expertise and include the best vendors with proven knowledge and experience delivering targeted automation solutions.”
