A training model of an auto storage/retrieval system

By Kian Sek Tee, Zainal Alam Haron and Hairulazwan Hashim


AS/RS is a key industrial automation system that has drastically reduced the workforce needed to run a warehouse. Via a computer-controlled system, many intensive labour jobs are taken over by the system, including tediously moving and sorting heavy load from the minute of receving until shipping to customers, intensive paperwork to record goods receiving and order receipts. Somehow, in real business, the system is always complex in the perspective of engineering considerations, depending on the nature of the business, tending to upgrading and modifying from time to time. This project is intended to develop a training model of AS/RS for the engineering students. The learning curves are provided through three levels in the system integration. The device level illustrates basic input and output devices that are carefully chosen. The controller level processes all input information from the input devices and host computer. The supervisory level implements graphic user interface for system monitoring and control for the operator. The training model also emphasizes in three design concepts, flexibility, expandability and modularity
