According to the exclusive Packaging World survey on robotics it’s engineers and operations people who are typically behind most decisions concerning robotic implementation (chart 5). Survey respondents also indicated that many times those decisions are based on what they find at trade shows (31% of respondents) or in the pages of publications (29% of respondents).
