The intent of this paper is to describe, in a brief overview, a real time materials handling system currently being developed and utilized in the primary manufacturing process of tobacco at the new manufacturing complex in Richmond, Virginia. This system employs minicomputers, 32K, 16-bits and smaller, for data processing, and for material control, involving laser identification, weight determination, moisture sensing, and several mass movement techniques.
