Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2017 -- Seegrid, the pioneer and leader in three-dimensional vision navigation, demonstrates how labor costs can be reduced with Seegrid's vision guided vehicles (VGVs). Labor accounts for 72% of lift truck ownership expenses. Vision guided vehicles crush labor challenges by providing an affordable an effective transport solution—no overtime or growing labor rates. VGVs handle the repetitive delivery of goods, leaving the value-added work to their human coworkers. Optimizing workflow processes cut costs out of the operation with consistent and efficient delivery of goods.
There are many methodologies for optimizing workflows such as lean based on the Toyota Production System and Six Sigma. Lean methodologies focus on eliminating waste and improving quality. Six Sigma focuses on the "quality of process outputs" and removing defects. Seegrid utilizes these methodologies to reduce wasted travel time for manufacturing and distribution facilities.
