Enabling end-to-end factory manufacturing through total solution offerings, Panasonic offers its new autonomous delivery system. Fully integrated with the company’s PanaCIM Solutions Ecosystem, the autonomous delivery system provides improved efficiency and lower total costs for virtually any manufacturing environment. Best-in-class partner solutions powered by Panasonic’s software to create a complete material management solution will also be on display during the show.
Seamlessly integrated into the PanaCIM Solutions software, the autonomous delivery system can decrease labor and material inventory costs, and reduce errors by automating the material delivery process, visually identifying the correct parts to maintain total control of materials throughout the delivery process, and finally, deliver the correct material only as needed. The evolution of Panasonic’s Manufacturing Execution Systems software ensures visibility and portability of materials with high efficiency and reduces stock levels to free up employees and working capital.
