Abstract
The aim of this paper is to validate travel time models for single cycle displacements of S/R machine in multi aisle automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) by using experimental computer simulation. The models under consideration take into account class based storage. We use ARENA 12 software for the simulation modeling. By simulation, we emulate the real functioning of the system. Therefore, we assume that the results from the ARENA simulation are equivalent to the onsite experimentation.
Simulation results present a comparative study carried between a classbased storage and purely random storage.
Keywords: AS/RS, multi aisle, simple cycle time, modelling, simulation, random storage, class based storage
