Monorail systems are commonly used in manufacturing and warehousing of items. Monorails can be used to bring products through the entire manufacturing process without the need for it to ever touch the ground. Monorail systems can be as simple as a traveling hoist, or as complex as a custom engineered crane. The advantage of monorails is that they take up no floor space which allows you to maximize every square foot you have. Take a look at the picture below to see an example of a monorail system and its different switchers and interlocks.
