Osher @ the J: How Amazon Gets You Stuff in Almost No Time
Thurs, June 13
noon bring-your-own lunch | 12:30pm speaker
How does Amazon get things to your door so quickly? Daniel Whitney explores the process, from robots and automation to logistics and management principles to the fulfillment center’s (FC) similarity to a Ford-like assembly line.
Speaker Daniel Whitney was born in Chicago and spent his adult life in the Boston area on the faculty and staff of MIT. He did research and consulting in robotics and other areas of manufacturing. He has been to hundreds of factories making everything from cars to razor blades and can tell an unlimited number of stories about how things are made. His recent work with MIT students took him to several Amazon and Amazon Fresh fulfillment centers from which visits and YouTube videos he has drawn the material for this talk.
The J has two men’s basketball leagues as well as a summer co-ed softball league. You can join with a team or as a free agent.
