Elevate your AGV game with Illuminate™ Manufacturing Intelligence
Acceptance of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) has reached a tipping point even in the most change-resistant industries. Today it is not uncommon to find several generations of AGVs from different suppliers in a single manufacturing facility moving product from warehouse to production line and finished goods to distribution. More vehicle types on the plant floor means more complexity. Anticipating where AGVs are needed before they are called can reduce congestion in pathways which can cause bottlenecking and lower Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). Illuminate™ Manufacturing Intelligence fills the gap between your AGV Fleet Manager and Manufacturing Execution System, predicting where AGVs need to be based on real-time production performance data and the status of every vehicle in your autonomous fleet.Learn More
