Paper Title:
Optimization for Order-Picking Path of Carousel in AS/RS Based on Improving Particle Swarm Optimization Approach
  Abstract

In order to improve the access efficiency of small items storage system in Automatic Storage & Retrieval System, we use the particle swarm optimization approach to analyze and optimize its order-picking path by taking the carousel with double sorting tables as research object. Through the analysis of order-picking process, a mathematical model for solving optimization of order-picking path is brought forward, and a solving process based on particle swarm is designed aiming at this model and testing the effectiveness of this algorithm. The experimental simulation proves that PSO can be the fast, stable and effective solution to the optimization problem of order-picking path for double sorting tables, thereby improving the overall operation efficiency of Automatic Storage & Retrieval System.
