RCO Overview Graphic

RCO is an independent process that monitors control sites on the factory floor. Like a traffic cop directing traffic, RCO directs the flow of product through the manufacturing environment using 'decision-based logic'.


A site is triggered by an operator


Routing Logic Modules eliminate decisions based on current production conditions

Decision 3
