What is known (f.e.): 1. Crane cycle time (depending on rack size, strategy, etc.) 2. Optimal shape of the rack 3. Optimal ABC zone shape and size (for given demand Pareto curve) 4. Optimal number of ABC classes Single unit-load aisle-captive AS/RS The most basic version of an AS/RS has one crane in each aisle, which cannot leave its designated aisle (aisle-captive) and can transport only one unit-load at a time (single shuttle) 17 Source: Roodbergen and Vis,

4 Pallet rack (side view). Rack length=height = 20 sec crane travel time. Random. What is the average travel time to go to a rack location and back to the (neglect acceleration/deceleration)? Travel time: = 27 sec H=20 sec =20 sec L =20 sec =20 sec Pallet rack (side view). Height 20 m. Optimal length? 2. Pallet rack (side view). Height 20 m. Optimal length? H=20 m H=20 m L?? L?? Pallet rack (side view). Height 20 m. Optimal length? 3. Optimal shape and size of the ABC area? Minimize crane travel time Example overhead crane for carpet rolls Constraint: rack must have given capacity Answer: rack must be square in time = Since crane drives about 4 times faster than it lifts: L 80 m
