A Universal Framework for Lean Design and Control of Automated Material Handling Systems
Paper in proceedings, 2012

Lean design and control of an automated material handling system is investigated in this study. A universal framework for modeling and analysis of different types of material handling mechanisms is introduced to obtain a minimum number of resources in a system design and fulfill a desired throughput. This framework is developed in a discrete event simulation environment and applied to a case study based on a real pallet system technology. The minimal design of the pallet system is realized by devising the system universal model.
