Abstract

Use of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) for material handling purposes has become increasingly popular. They introduce flexibility to the system by increasing the speed, responsiveness, and freight capacity as well as enabling increased productivity, safety, efficient resource utilization and reducing costs. These advantages can be realized by intelligent assignment of AGVs to jobs, and routing of AGVs to meet production plans.
