Abstract: Pallet shuttle can dramatically extend the shuttle of SRM when store or retrieve unit loads in deep lane racks. The AS/RS with pallet runner can store more unit loads in the same space. This paper describes a framework in which SRM collaborates with pallet runners to store and retrieve loads efficiently. Throughput estimation method is also presented for this novel type of automated warehouse. The method is developed from traditional dual command cycle.
