Abstract

Automated storage and retrieval systems are warehousing systems that are used for the storage and retrieval of products in both distribution and production environments. Shuttle based storage/retrieval systems are composed of elevators with lifting tables that are attached on a mast, shuttle carriers, buffer positions and the storage racks. It is observed that the shuttle based storage/retrieval systems increases the throughput capacity of the systems compared to automated storage/retrieval systems. Shuttle based storage/retrieval systems is relatively a new technology in automated storage and retrieval systems and usually works with aisle and tier captive shuttles. This new technology is mostly used for mini-load warehouses. The main body of the paper consists of an overview of literature discussing automated storage/retrieval systems and shuttle based storage/retrieval systems.
