ABSTRACT
Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) have become quite popular with their applications in automatic materials handling systems, in flexible manufacturing systems and even in seaports. In consequence of their widespread employment, the problems in these systems have emerged increasingly. In this study, a mathematical programming model is proposed for setting up an AGV system. When an AGV system is to be set up, flow path design and determination of the numbers and types of the required vehicles are crucial decisions for the system efficiency. In the literature, no model is present that solve these problems simultaneously. Therefore here an integrated mixed integer linear programming model is proposed to solve the foregoing problems for the preliminary design. The solvability of the model is shown on the randomly generated test problems.
