arculus has developed a new ICT integrated solution to streamline production processes and replace the 100-year-old assembly line industry standard. It consists of arculee – an Autonomous Guided Vehicle (AGV) to transport both products and materials – and arcOS – a digital twin factory software to optimise production workflow and workstations operations. The solution enables cost-effective processes in factories manufacturing products with a high number of variants, increasing their productivity.
The solution consists in breaking the line, separating all workstations, and placing them as independent modules in a 2D grid with any shape and size. arcOS effectively manages production sequence and work flow, and arculee executes arcOS’s commands in real-time.
