When deciding to invest in intelligent automation for the purposes of manufacturing, warehousing or trucking, businesses are likely to face a number of questions. What are the pros and cons? Does such an investment make sense under the current and future conditions?
A systematic analysis of the requirements and the as-is situation should always be the basis for automation concepts. It is also important to perform a qualitative assessment of different conceptual ideas in terms of flexibility criteria, and then to focus quantitatively on cost criteria. Responsiveness, availability, scalability and ergonomics, resource and investment expenditure, operating costs, maintenance and implementation expenditure all play a decisive role here. 4flow successfully supports companies throughout automation projects. 4flow has developed a standardized approach for this purpose, which has proven successful in a wide variety of projects.

4flow integrates benchmarks and best practices into the decision-making process and recommendations for action as well as a detailed process cost calculation. This end-to-end approach creates the transparency necessary to enable management to choose the right option. The following benefits are usually achieved in 4flow projects:
- Optimization of warehousing and handling costs
