This thesis deals with improving the operational efficiency of automated part storage devices, in this case Vertical Lift Modules (VLM). This was accomplished by using dynamic slotting to maximize and maintain high material throughput, eliminating the need for periodic reslotting. Multiple VLMs can be used in parallel picking operations to improve material throughput. Common industry practice is to periodically reslot items once an unbalanced workload is obvious. This thesis investigates a… CONTINUE READING
