Description

B&W image of a man at the operating controls at an automated distribution center
Paper label: " An operator of the automated distribution system at Gallo Sales Co., the largest wine distriutor in Northern California, monitors the flow of thousands of orders each evening into the trucks for delivery next day. The system controller is a Hewlett-Packard 9503 Industrial Measurement and Control System which selects the wine cases and then controls their flow through an intricate maze more than two miles long over both gravity and powered conveyors. The automated system has speeded the order-filling process and reduced errors considerably. ##"
