Meeting of the Strategy Group

Meeting of the Strategy Group in Düsseldorf: The VDI will no longer present the individual technical committees separately on its new website. So from now on this will be done on the pages of the Forum AGV.

In order to improve the reliability and predictability of the project work, a set of rules for the cooperation in the VDI FA AGV will be created. This will soon be available for inspection and download under “Formalities”.

* hardback book

The Kindle version is available for €46.99 gross.

The 3rd edition of the well-known fibula is available now.

Up-to-date and more comprehensive than ever before, the technical book provides a comprehensive overview of the technology and planning of automated guided vehicles systems (AGVS).

Technological standards of all AGV-relevant components and functions are explained and numerous examples are given of how AGVs are used in practice – including in the automotive, electrical and food industries.

The authors, Dr.-Ing. Günter Ullrich and Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Albrecht, look back on the history of AGV and also take a look into the future to see what else will be possible.

The 3rd edition of “Automated Guided Vehicles” is a reference book for all employees of companies that deal with intralogistic issues or offer AGV products or AGV services, for developers and users of service robotics and of course students of logistics.

Corona-Concept

Dear reader,

the corona virus has changed all our lives. Of course, we also deal with the changed situation in a very responsible manner and have therefore put our working methods to the test and partly adapted them!

First of all, we can state that we are able to maintain all our consulting services! Our team members have already worked together successfully in the past, although they each work in their own offices spread all over Germany. In addition to the usual communication channels (email, mobile phone and SMS), we have been using common data networking (paperless office) and powerful tools for telephone and web conferences for years.

What is new or different since March 2020?

We question the necessity of every business trip! We do this together with all parties involved, i.e. with our customers, partners and colleagues.

What are the alternatives to a business trip?

When are business trips also useful in Corona times?

What should be taken into account when conducting business trips?

The Corona traffic light for our services:

Green Can be carried out in corona times without problems. If desired, travel can be dispensed with completely.

Yellow These tasks can also be carried out in corona times. However, some trips are unavoidable. This requires appropriate preparations and arrangements.

Red These tasks are not feasible in corona times and must be postponed to later.
