The FEM Intralogistic Systems Product Group published a technical guide on the cycle time calculation for automated vehicle storage and retrieval systems.
This new technical recommendation aims to estimate the possible number of cycles per time achievable with an automated vehicle storage and retrieval system. The recommendation focuses on storage and retrieval systems for units such as containers, boxes or trays. This allows manufacturers, operators and customers to check whether the plant characteristics guaranteed in the contract match the values during the acceptance test.
