Material transportation system (MTS) often being used to move materials inside a factory, warehouse, or other facility. The five main types of equipment are industrial trucks, automated guided (AGV) vehicles, rail-guided vehicles, conveyors, and hoist and cranes. This report focused on AGV where the optimization of MTS is further studied. Applying an AGVs in logistic factory may help in improving the efficiency in material flow and distribution among workstation at right time and right place. The main objective of this project is to study transportation requirement in a factory which consist of dynamic factors. The used of dynamic system in modelling gives an advantages in term of flexibility for changes of orders, unexpected machine or equipment failure, production delays, and other decisions then feedback to alter inventories and backlogs. This report present the method to organize and analyze the movement of AGV in warehouse area to obtain the optimum number of AGVs required in the warehouse to fulfill all the task given by simulation software. Anylogic software is being used to build a simulation model and analyzed the system performance. The obtained results was the optimization of MTS for factory logistic which produce effective material handling system and creates the systematic handling system in warehouse. By manipulating number of AGV, system throughput and cycle time being observed. Data obtained from simulation being compared as number of AGV had change. Minitab 17 software are used to create statistical graph in 2D and 3D surface in order to analyze and evaluate the results.
