Project Automated and integrated layout and transport system planning taking logistical and economic targets into account (AutoLaT)

The project

The aim of the research project AutoLaT is to develop an expert system for the selection of transport systems and the integrated creation of material flow-efficient layouts. To this end, the effects of the transport system selection (e.g. reach truck) and the planning of the corresponding transport networks (e.g. route network for driverless transport systems) are to be taken into account in layout planning (arrangement of facilities and warehouses)

In the research project WALaTra, a method for selecting an LKT system is being developed based on the necessary degree of adaptability and automation. For the selection of an optimal acquisition a classification of current LKT systems is necessary, as well as the determination of the necessary adaptability and automation of the enterprises.
