In real bay layout of automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems for thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) Array manufacturing, excessive inter-bay transfers in such systems will degrade performance. Thus, this paper presents two models which capture the elements of the material handling time of both bay and conventional AGV systems. Five case simulation studies are conducted to determine whether bay systems are more suitable than conventional AGV systems for particular applications under consideration of inter-bay transfer rate.
Key words: Automated guided vehicles, material handling systems, simulation, thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD).
