Automatic guided vehicles (AGV) are commonly used to transfer parts in flexible manufacturing systems (FMS). Due to the inherent complexity of such systems AGV dispatching policy is non trivial. A dispatching algorithm based on fuzzy logic was developed and compared in simulation to conventional single attribute and multi-attribute dispatching algorithms. Results indicate that fuzzy dispatching is superior to the other tested dispatching algorithms, especially in high and medium volume systems.
