Training

Even with a standardized solution like Blue Robot, every customer installation is a little bit different. Therefore, we conduct a series of test runs with adjustments to ensure that everything runs smooth and as expected after everything is setup and ready. During this phase, the installed area must not be in use for production purposes.

 

We value your time, and we will only hand over the installation after rigorous testing and validation to ensure that you and your workers get the best possible experience of implementing Blue Robot ASRS.

Operators and other relevant staff are trained in Blue Robot operations to ensure a safe and efficient implementation. This also includes training in how to report issues and understanding our escalation processes. We want to make sure that you are getting the most from the system from day one and your custom process steps will be included in the training if requested.

We understand that you always want to be able to utilize your location as best as possible. We take pride in making this phase as short and effective as possible, to get you up and running as soon as possible. Due to early focus on good planning, with experienced people, our install and configuration phase is therefore very efficient and generally rather short, usually only 2-3 weeks.

Robot(s) with rails is installed at customer site by Blue Robot or partners. Bins are delivered and placed in the cube. Conveyors and cube external (like 3rd party packing or picking solutions) installations are completed.

 

Before the installation is complete, the software is configured for your business. This includes user management, reporting routines and integrations.

Before we can install the solution at your site, there are a few preparations that needs to be done. It's up to you if you want to manage this part of the project your self (we will provide detail specifications) or if you want us to handle everything. 

The main preparation tasks are:  

  • Allocation of dedicated install space 

  • Mounting/fixing points for portals 

  • Leveling of floor 

  • Installing safety barriers 

  • Placing/verification of power outlets 

  • Prepare network access 

In addition to this, you need to plan for physical access for Blue Robot staff. If you require specific security clearance for the install staff, we will follow your protocol.

After we have gotten a clear understanding of your current and future needs and requirements, we will provide you with an offer for a "key ready" solution. We will include everything needed to reach the goals you have, and we take full responsibility for the installation and subcontractor deliveries.

In the offer you will find: 

  • Project overview that describe the solution and system 

  • Detailed milestone plan 

  • Clear acceptance criteria for accepting the solution 

  • Payment plan with options 

  • Subcontractor and partner deliveries descriptions 

  • Integration, test, and implementation details 

  • Legal constrains and considerations, including handling of GDPR and other information security topics 

Blue Robot ASRS is a solution that can be installed by using our pre-set standards or be fully customized to you. In the first phase of the project, we take a deep dive into your requirements, to ensure that you get the optimal installation for your business. The main aspects we cover during this time is: 

  • Process mapping of your current process 

  • Current and future throughput needs 

  • Integrations with your other systems and solutions 

  • Location and building structure specifications

Site Acceptance Tests (SAT)

We are not happy until you are, that's why the Site Acceptance Test is conducted by you (with our assistance) to ensure that the solution is not released for production before every acceptance criteria has been met. We want you to see the result and effectiveness for yourself, so that you are confident in the solution before you give the "go".

Transfer to Operations

Given a successful SAT evaluation, the solution is fully handed over to customer and will be part of their operations.

Service and Maintenance

Depending on your needs, we have several options for service and maintenance. This will be tailored to fit your needs and our partners ensure you get the level of support you need.

Extending Blue Robot

One of the big benefits of Blue Robot ASRS, is that it can grow as you do. We will make sure that you are followed up in the pace the that is right for you, so that extension of the solution can be planned and executed based on your growing needs. Extensions can include increasing existing cubes, adding more cubes, robots or making use of extended features in the software.
