Abstract: This paper presents a Petri net modeling approach for analyzing tandem AGV systems. The approach allows the consideration of several critical design issues such as multi-load vehicles, multi-machine processing workstations, finite queue capacities, and constant work in process operating policies. The proposed approach is capable of providing analytical as well as simulative results and allows tandem AGV systems to be fully explored within a single framework.
