Challenge: A global manufacturer was focused on reallocating labor to reduce product damage and costs. Within its dynamic environment, it was crucial to adhere to safety protocols while improving reliability.
Solution: The facility focused on two key workflows: parts-to-line and dunnage. Employees in these workflows were redeployed to more engaging, cognitive tasks — keeping the workforce safer and more satisfied. The company initially deployed more than 30 Seegrid Palion Tow Tractors for these applications. With proven success, it continued adding to its autonomous mobile robot (AMR) fleet, which now drives over 1,000 miles per week due to long-distance routes in the facility.
Results: By implementing Seegrid Palion AMRs, the manufacturer was able to reallocate workers to more cognitive, value-add positions. The company also achieved its “5S” workplace organization method goals — as well as a 50% reduction in work-in-progress holding costs and other associated operational costs.
