Puzzle-Based Storage Systems

  title={Puzzle-Based Storage Systems},
  author={K. R. Kim}
We introduce and develop models for a physical goods storage system based on the 15-puzzle, a classic children's game in which 15 numbered tiles slide within a 4 x 4 grid. The objective of the game is to arrange the tiles in numerical sequence, starting from a random arrangement. For our purposes, the tiles represent totes, pallets, or even containers that must be stored very densely, and the objective is to maneuver items to an input-output point for retrieval or processing. We develop… CONTINUE READING
