Simulation models of parallel, rotary, and side-opening milking parlors were built that could predict milking parlor performance according to herd size, number of milking stalls, labor quality, and cow characteristics. The models were validated by statistically comparing the duration of the simulated milking process with actual data collected at 3 dairy(More)
In this paper we develop a closed queueing network model for a robotic milking barn. We present an approximative mean-value analysis of the model to evaluate important performance criteria such as the queue length, waiting time and utilization of the facilities in the barn. It is shown how the results from the queueing network analysis can support the(More)
