Industry 4.0 demands that the factory reduce its unnecessary movements and minimize human interaction. And it is that, thanks to intelligent solutions, the processes of the supply chain and material handling can be faster than ever, meeting and exceeding expectations. To do this, Bossard makes SmartBin Cloud and SmartLabel Cloud technology available to its customers, which automatically activate demand requests to keep workers on site, avoiding movement in the factory. With this technology, all stakeholders can quickly access information, reconfigure jobs, and collaborate to overcome obstacles. Taking this concept a step further, crucial inventory can be replenished and then moved seamlessly by robotics throughout the production floor.
AMR for Industry 4.0
Last mile management software fully connects SmartLabels and SmartBins with Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) to bridge the gap between big data and automation. Allowing robotics to move parts from one area of the shop floor to another produces the following benefits: The most efficient route is taken Workers remain fully engaged in manufacturing Obstacles are avoided
Industry 4.0 How to save time by reducing movement in the factory?
With new smart factory technologies and big data being transferred to the cloud, managers and workers can optimize the flow of materials from remote locations. Working from a single view of the supply chain eliminates inefficient processes and reduces the number of people in work areas. Less human interaction means fewer chances for errors, fewer obstacles in the lines, and less movement on the jobsite. The long-term time-saving factor of bringing decision makers closer to production is exponential. The company’s smart factory logistics and last mile management enable better, more agile and smarter operations.
