Abstract—In this paper, simulation is used to compare the performance of three Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) flow configurations: conventional, tandem and loop in three differently sized facilities. The objective is to study the effect of these configurations in various facilities on minimizing the ratio of total unloaded travel time of all AGVs in the system. It is found that this ratio is highly affected by AGV configurations as well as the size of the facility and number of AGVs used.

Index Terms—simulation, AGV, flow configuration, facility layout
