This paper presents an integrated design for an automated guided vehicle (AGV) system. Three kinds of integration problems are solved: transporter routings are classified; the number of AGVs for the systems is determined; and suitable flow paths are calculated for the various kinds of transporter routings. The flow paths are calculated by solving an iterative direct problem using a genetic algorithm (GA). The set of transporter routings, the number of AGVs, and the flow path of the AGV systems are constructed with simulations.
