dc.description.abstractIn this paper, we propose a method for design of tandem automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems with single-load vehicles. We consider the concurrent design of machines layout and AGV guide paths for a tandem system. Our goal is to devise a method that can achieve the following objectives: (1) maximise the workload balance between loops; (2) minimise the inter-loop flow; and (3) minimise the total flow distance. Our method solves the problem in four stages, considering the machines layout and the tandem paths at the same time. It assigns machines to loops, determines the layout of each loop, arranges loops on the floor, and finally designs a transportation centre to link the loops. We compare the performance of our method with a sequential design method that first determines the layout and then assigns the machines to loops. We solve a number of randomly generated problems for both methods. Results indicate that the proposed algorithm performs faster and achieves lower values of inter-loop flows and inter-loop flow distances. © 2011 Taylor & Francis.
