What is Material Handling Systems Integration?

warehouse materials aisle System integration (SI) is an engineering or IT process concerned with bringing different subsystems or components together as one large system and ensuring that the subsystems function together as a system. In today’s connected world, system integration engineers have important roles as more and more systems are designed to connect, both within new systems and to existing systems. In a warehouse or distribution center, material handling systems integration is the process by which the different sections of your facility are combined and made to function as a single seamless operation. Installing the best quality pallet rack, sortation systems, conveyors, and management software available will mean little if you don’t have a plan that integrates all the parts and pieces. The goal of systems integration is to attain optimal efficiency and the best return on your investment. It’s important to choose an integration partner with good skill sets, experience, and a fresh perspective – not just someone who offers routine solutions. You should look to your systems integrator as a long-term partner, beginning with initial design concept, through the design implementation, and throughout the life cycle of your system.
