OAK BROOK, Ill.– A new series of free webinars will be presented monthly by the Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) in advance of the WERC 39th Annual Conference for Logistics Professionals. Each half-hour Solutions at WERC webinar will give participants a sampling of the types of educational content they will experience at the Annual Conference – to be held in Providence, Rhode Island on May 15-18, 2016.
The first webinar, entitled “Augmented Reality,” will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2015 from 2:00 to 2:30 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. Presenting the session are Exel’s Omer Rashid, Senior Director of Solutions Design and Saman Saiy, Director of Solutions Design. According to Rashid, technologies that might sound like science fiction are just now starting to find a place in real-life industry applications.
“Augmented Reality can enhance the actual environment by overlaying context specific, computer-generated information to certain areas of a company’s supply chain – including warehousing, transportation and logistics,” Rashid explains. As an industry, we have only begun to realize the opportunity augmented reality technology can offer. From scheduling of maintenance and repairs to picking by vision in warehouses, we expect to see significant benefits.
All Solutions at WERC webinars will be posted on WERC’s YouTube Channel, as well as available via the WERC website .
