Abstract

The present article aims to succinctlycharacterizethe first implementationof a system of AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) in a factory of components for the automotive industry. Furthermore, to solidify the knowledge base upon which this article was developed, it is imperative to propose a classification approach for the different types of AGVs due to particularly heterogeneous points of view within the community. Finally, the costs between the former transportation solution, the implemented one and a third suggested by a methodological proposal for AGV implementation in an indoor, industrial context developed by the author, were compared aiming to justify the investment validity in this technology. The implementation was completed resulting in a reduction of labor costs with a payback period of 6 months and 14 days.
