Robotics in manufacturing has helped companies align with lean manufacturing principles by eliminating muda (or waste) from processes. However, eliminating all material transport waste has been impossible until now. Mainstay options won't achieve lean productivity, but a new generation of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) will.

This eBook will teach you how AMRs and lean manufacturing come together to create interconnected and highly efficient manufacturing 4.0.
