An approach to control generalized warehouses


Generalized warehouses denote complex warehousing systems where several kind of resources, automated vehicles, manned vehicles and on-foot storemen have to execute a list of moving orders. This paper presents an approach to control these systems, which have an increasing relevance in real world but have not been well studied from a scientific point of view. The approach is based on the simulation of a Colored Timed Petri Net model in order to evaluate a set of dispatching rules used to assign the orders to the available resources.
