Abstract

The paper presents analysis and simulation studies on pallet rack system with shuttle trucks – version of shuttle-based storage and retrieval system (SBS/RS). The main attention was paid to systems based on Pallet Radio Shuttle technology. Paper concerns research and analysis of technical and organizational parameters selection in storage system Pallet Radio Shuttle type. For this purpose was developed FlexSim simulation model. Various structural and organizational variants of racking system were investigated. Individual variants were distinguished by different numbers of rack bays, storage levels, depth of the tunnels, as well as the number of shuttles.

Keywords: FlexSim simulation, shuttle truck, pallet rack system, SBS/RS
