WorkFlow Builder lowers several barriers to adoption by simplifying integration and re-programming efforts.
Fetch Robotics launched in March 2020 its Workﬂow Builder toolkit, which allows customers to design, implement, and redesign their own workﬂows for Fetch’s autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). Based on Blockly programming, Workﬂow Builder features a drag-and-drop interface that non-programmers can learn. WorkFlow Builder allows customers to deploy AMRs in days, doing all the work in-house without the need to rely on third-party integrators. Although Workﬂow Builder is used for device, warehouse management system (WMS), and warehouse execution system (WES) integration, it is not dependent on the use of a WMS or WES. It can be deployed with WMS-related workﬂows such as picking and putaway, or workﬂows completely outside the WMS such as pack station replenishment, empty tote return, or recycling removal.
