Automated storage/retrieval system design using ladder diagrams and icon-based programs Conference Paper uri icon


  • A student project that involves the design of an Automated Storage/Retrieval System (ASRS) which utilizes strengths form both ladder diagrams and icon-based programming is discussed. Educational instrumentation by Fischertechnik, including a set of building blocks, was used to build a scale model of an ASRS. This approach provides many benefits to integrating manufacturing system design within a class curriculum. Two separate models were developed successfully for a student semester project.
