Özet

New analytical models supporting the design conceptualization of automated storage and retrieval systems are proposed. They include an analytical cycle time model for automated storage and retrieval systems using dedicated storage and computationally efficient procedures for estimating space requirements with systems using randomized or class-based storage. These models fill two gaps in the existing literature focused on analysing space and cycle time tradeoffs for alternative system configurations defined by the number of storage aisles, rows and bays. They are illustrated through a sample problem.
