Pittsburgh, PA, September 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Seegrid Corporation, global leader of robotic automated guided vehicles (AGVs), understands the importance of providing a transport solution that will work in this type of environment—and work well as a solution for lean and flexible manufacturing. Vision-guided automated guided vehicles are perfect for this kind of manufacturing process, while reducing waiting time, motion, and transportation costs.
Dori Kozak, Seegrid Marketing Manager explained in the company blog, “At times, I have seen flexible manufacturing as interchangeable with lean manufacturing. Lean manufacturing altered the production process for many leading-edge companies during the last 20 years, but with consumer options increasing, the process is being transformed for flexibility in manufacturing,”
Lean manufacturing has been part of the industry since the 1990’s. As customers increase the stakes for manufacturers to remain competitive by expecting shorter sales cycles and wanting custom orders, it is becoming a goal to have flexible manufacturing methods.
