Abstract

Ordering picking is the most time- and cost-consuming operation in the Robotic Mobile Fulfillment System (RMFS) and affects the entire supply chain operation efficiency and effectiveness. With the aid of digital operations, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) provide a nearly real-time control and response in the virtualized environment, thereby conducting a virtual prototype for near real-time simulation and prediction. The research presented in this paper explores the application of CPS in RMFS, considering the order correlation pattern. Four algorithms: Apriori algorithm, Frequent Pattern Growth algorithm, ECLAT algorithm and k-modes algorithm are introduced to reduce robotic conflicts of robots and enhance the capacity management in RMFS. The total completion time based on frequent itemset assignment is less than that based on random storage assignment. However, the dock grid conflicts are increased because the most frequent items are concentrated in a particular area.
