AUTONOMY@WORK

AUTONOMY@WORK™ is a software platform for Process Managers and AMR Fleet Managers. It offers powerful, user friendly features, supporting the design, execution and monitoring of smart intralogistics processes for manufacturing or warehousing operations.

Implementing Smart Intralogistics takes more than deploying mobile robots. Even as advanced autonomous devices as versabots, equipped with TRUE AUTONOMY navigational AI, need to be coordinated and aligned with the master process (manufacturing or warehousing) which they are to support. Navigate this page to explore key functional areas of the platform, and get an overview of the structure of implementation process.

KEY FUNCTIONAL AREAS

ENVIRONMENT MAPPING

VERSABOTS can be used to map the shop floor environment, creating most up-to-date representation of intralogistic process workspace. This map can also be used with VIRTUAL FACTORY to verify the processes based on other inputs, such as CAD layouts.

PROCESS DESIGN

AUTONOMY@WORK offers users powerful tools for visual process design, and evaluation of different process scenarios using VIRTUAL FACTORY simulation tool. This allows Process Managers to achieve optimum performance of intralogistics process before it is implemented on the actual shop floor.

PROCESS EXECUTION

The process activities defined and stored in process repository are executed by VersaBox AMR robots – VERSABOTs. Their work is flawlessly orchestrated by Process Execution Engine – fully automated component of AUTONOMY@WORK platform.

PROCESS CONTROL

Process Execution Engine collect real time data streams representing events relevant to intralogistics process, such as shipping orders from master processes, localisation and status data from versabots, progress of transport assignments etc.

PROCESS ASSET MANAGEMENT

AUTONOMY@WORK provides Process Managers and Fleet Managers the means to manage the configuration of intralogistics system and supports maintenance and lifecycle management of the assets (versabots, tools, docks, charging stations etc).

Data Driven Process Design and Implementation

IMPLEMENTING AUTONOMY@WORK

VERSABOX platform enables unique, agile, data driven process of implementing smart intralogistics. The key to achieving business results fast lies in the simulation capabilities offer by VIRTUAL FACTORY, navigational excellence provided by TRUE AUTONOMY and open API enabling safe, seamless integration with the master process.

DEFINE

Data Driven implementation process starts with the preparation of realistic simulation of the new logistics process. This process is supported by the VersaBox DIGITAL FACTORY™ simulation and analytics tools. Developing and analyzing a scenario with dozens of VERSABOTS and a single floorplan from the scratch takes less than a few days for trained user.

DELIVER

The software components of the AUTONOMY@WORK platform are installed and configured, and its process repository is populated with the process definition developed during the DEFINE stage. After the delivery of the hardware this process definition is complemented with actual VERSABOTS configuration and plant mapping.

INTEGRATE

To plug in the process into the master manufacturing or warehouse management process, all the software and hardware interfaces need to be connected and tested. Software integration is achieved by using AUTONOMY@WORK open API (Application Programming Interface). API is used for synchronization of robots with PLC components of automatic shelves, monorail or roller transport systems.

LAUNCH

Review, initiate and rollout the new, smart intralogistics process.

EVALUATE

Versabots are data collecting machines. This allows process managers to evaluate the actual process metrics, and improve processes using VIRTUAL FACTORY™. Any changes of the metrics reflecting the evolution for manufacturing or warehousing operations, can be used in the VIRTUAL FACTORY™ to remodel and improve processes.
