AGV TECHNOLOGY CRITICAL POINTS
POTENTIALLY HIGH INITIAL INVESTMENT
In short term the costs of a solution with AGV system are higher then the hire more operators. It is in the mid/long term, that it is possible to see the return of the investment. This solutions will last for years granting savings year after year.
NOT FIT FOR NON REPETITIVE WORKS
AGV solutions are fit if the operations are mainly repetitive. Being robot the software that control them can be programmed for a limited number of variables. If the operations tend to be non repetitive then AGV is not the best choice.
