ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on preparing for a dispensing robot or automated dispensing unit (ADU), based on his personal experiences. According to the author, investing in an ADU should save staff dispensing time, improve accuracy and develop a calmer, more efficient working environment. The author states that the increase in dispensing workload necessitated him to purchase an ADU.
