  • Automated Formal Verification of Routing in Material Handling Systems

    The design of correctly implemented controls in material handling systems (MHS) is time consuming and cumbersome. The developer has to deal with an ever increasing complexity and heterogeneity of MHS on the one hand, but also with short development cycles and high demands to MHS on the other hand. For baggage handling systems (BHS) at airports, the error-free implementation of routing strategies is especially of importance, as these strategies are critical to safety. This paper proposes a compositional approach to the formal verification of routing in MHS. The approach is based on the theory of assume- guarantee reasoning, where proofs of the overall system are derived from proofs of subsystems. Moreover, the approach has been implemented in a tool that automatically carries out the verification. A real-world example is discussed in this paper, showing the benefits and scalability of the presented approach.

  • Performance evaluation of an automated material handling system for a machining line using simulation

    In the evaluation of a material handling system, multiple factors should be considered, including the plant's facilities, the machinery, the material handling equipment, and of course, the people involved. Simulation techniques can be effectively used in all the phases of this process in order to understand the behavior of manufacturing systems, from the material handling concept definition throughout the system's final implementation In this paper, an automated material handling system for a cylinder block machining line is proposed and evaluated by means of discrete event simulation using the ProModel simulator. Initially, the machining line is modeled with manual material handling to get an estimate of the true line capacity. Then the proposed conveyor system is modeled, and the systems are compared by means of confidence intervals. The results revealed that the automated material handling system causes a slight decrease in the system throughput, while gaining the benefits of a Just in Time based system.

  • Design of a RFID-based resource management system for warehouse operation

    In the past, the selection of resource to execute various warehouse operation services was done by solely human experts. In this paper, a RFlD-based resource management system (RFID-RMS) is designed in helping users to select the most suitable resource usage package for handling warehouse operation order by retrieving and analyzing useful knowledge from a case based data warehouse for solutions in both time saving and cost effective manner. The proposed system, which is suitable for usage in warehouse operating environment, enhances the effectiveness in formulating resource usage package by integrating the case-based reasoning techniques and automatic data collection technique, namely, radio frequency identification (RFID) through applying RFID-RMS in GENCO distribution system, one of the largest international distributions and logistics based company. The utilization of warehouse resource is maximized while work efficiency is greatly enhanced.

  • A knowledge base and inference tool for handling non-rigid materials

    A knowledge-based approach to the configuration of automating handling systems for nonrigid materials is presented. The approach consists of a declarative knowledge representation for handling and sensing strategies employed in the automated handling of nonrigid materials. A knowledge based system (KB) that utilises this formalism is also presented. The KB aims in assisting system engineers to provide acceptable configurations of automating handling systems. Based on task specification and material properties, the KB provides a handling solution that consists of sensing and handling strategies, resources and their necessary configuration to perform the handling task.

  • Knowledge-based computer-aided design of materials handling systems

    A knowledge-based system called MAHDE (materials handing design) is described that was devised to assist facility designers in the selection and configuration of materials handling equipment. The system implements techniques for representing and acquiring the preferences of the facility designer. This preferential knowledge is incorporated into a knowledge-based system utilizing heuristics to update the operational knowledge about the individual design. The system utilizes preference-directed search to capture improved designs by dynamically acquiring preferences throughout the design process. An example of the application of the system to a design problem is presented.<<ETX>>

  • Using Discrete-Event Computer Simulation To Test Control Systems

    The material handling control system of an automated manufacturing facility is tested during the commissioning of the plant. This leads to protracted commissioning periods as well as the possibility of costly equipment damage. The testing is performed in a modular fashion so that complex interaction are often overlooked. It is suggested that simulation can play a valuable part in speeding up the commissioning stage of plant startup by interfacing the control system to a computer simulation of the factory. The control system receives information about the state of the manufacturing system from the simulation and the simulation receives information from the controller on what to do next. By developing a complete simulation model and running the simulation for long periods of simulated time, the control system can be tested rigorously prior to the plant startup. The emphasis of this paper is on some of the important practical concerns of linking a discrete-event simulation system to a controller. The impact this has on the simulation model will be discussed in conjunction with two small example problems. The examples will include some of the code used to connect the controller and the simulation.

Finally, fiber optic talk sets will be reviewed along with the applications and features that should be addressed when communication is required. After completing this tutorial you should have an understanding of: Introduction to Fiber Testing; Selecting Test Equipment; Cleaning Fiber Identifiers; Visual Tracers; Visual Inspection; and Fiber Optic Talk Sets.
