On the use of automated guided vehicles in flexible manufacturing systems

Abstract

In manufacturing systems, material transport plays a key role for production process efficiency. Because of their advantages over other material handling systems such as conveyors and robots, AGVs are widely used in flexible manufacturing systems. The scheduling of several AGVs in a non-conflicting manner is a complicated problem, especially when the AGV… (More)
