APM Configuration Concepts and Network Designby Mark Spada, People Mover Sales &, Applications, Westinghouse, Transportation Div, West Mifflin, PA, USA,
Abstract: The simpler networks, along with several of the more complex variations, include the following: Single-Lane Shuttle, Single-Lane Shuttle with Bypass, Double-Lane Shuttle, Single-Lane Loop, Double-Lane Loop, Pinched Loop with Turnbacks, Multi-Shuttle, and Shuttle/Loop Combination. Given the numerous configurations, network planners must decide which concept best fits: the applications, and the performance requirements and design constraints associated with it. Several factors, and the relative importance placed on each of the factors by the planners, determine which network is best.
