IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) are now available and mandatory according to John Hayes, VP at Vecna Robotics. Hayes shared, “Without IIoT monitoring, plant managers, operations managers, logistics coordinators throughout manufacturing and distribution sectors lack the data collected offering real-time continuous vehicle status and health information of the vehicle.”
Vecna Robotics sends these data directly to a highly skilled team of support engineers; corrective actions are executed and/or recommended before down-time occurs. This translates into bottom-line throughput improvement. Manufacturing throughput time is the amount of time required for a product to pass through a manufacturing process, thereby being converted from raw materials into finished goods.
One of the unique differentiators and critical value propositions of IIoT monitoring includes a video feed from vehicles allowing for remote access to all vehicles AND the ability to immediately address situations that are not safe. While other AGV vendors may have the data collected via sensors, it is the disruptive leadership of Vecna Robotics that determined the critical, even life-saving, need for IIoT monitoring with all their vehicles.
While there is absolutely an ROI (Return on Investment) calculation in this IIoT monitoring service, one qualifiable data point is peace of mind. Knowing that the operation of these vehicles and their interaction with the plant floor is monitored 24/7 by factory engineers represents of first-of-its-kind industry breakthrough in utilization of data to produce the safest and most efficient operation.
