AGV Selection Process Requires Objectivity and System Integration Project Management


Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/29/2015 -- Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are used to consistently and predictably transport loads of material to places that might otherwise be serviced by forklift trucks, conveyors, or manual cart transport. They are typically used where high volumes of repetitive movements of material is required, but where little or no human decision making skill is required to perform the movement.

They are especially useful in serving processes where change is contact, and barriers - such as conveyors - are undesirable.

Bastian Solutions suggested that the AGV selection process requires objectivity and system integration project management to reduce variances found in human delivery operations, lower lifetime cost of non-value added transportation of materials, enhancing the ability to transport materials without adding barriers, such as conveyors, into an integrated system.

Bastian Solutions will exhibit at the WestPack Conference (Booth #4979) from February 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center, CA.

Following WestPack, Bastian Solutions will be exhibiting at ProMat 2015 (Booth #3953) held March 23-26 at Chicago's McCormick Place. Use the following link for free ProMat 2015 registration from Bastian Solutions.
