Manufacturing companies consider optimisation of the logistics activities on the production floor as an important driver to remain competitive. However, logistics in production comprises several subaspects. In a blog series, we zoom in on the various challenges and possible solutions. In the meantime, we are building a demonstrator with autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs) in our application lab in Diepenbeek. This is just a sneak preview of what we have in store with our demonstrator.
