The bot baron. DLA was in need of operational efficiency, so Lockwood turned to bots for enhanced automation in areas such as financial recording and auditing. He was able to fully integrate deployed bots across the enterprise in less than 100 days. Those efforts — which include five teams and six attended bots, with more unattended bots on the way — already have saved DLA nearly 2,000 staff hours. Beyond his day job, Lockwood mentors others in DOD and across government in robotics and automation, all while ensuring DLA is primed to incorporate artificial intelligence as the technology continues to evolve.
