Abstract: This report discusses and demonstrates the scheduling of production orders in the flexible manufacturing system (FMS) aided by automated guided vehicles (AGVs). A realistic simulation is to be developed given the impact line 2.0 testbed layout. Three-dimensional (3-D) component models such as arm robots, machines, conveyors, and AGVs will be established using visual components (VC) software. A reconfigurable controller based on a discrete-event framework is then applied to the simulated environment to verify the correctness of the controller and evaluate the system's performance for the scheduled production order. Unfortunately, there is no manufacturing system capable of producing infinite materials under the ideal condition. Thus, to complete the supply, it will require the assistance of materials handling systems and AGVs fleet management system. Also, AGVs has been increasingly popular nowadays in the modern manufacturing system and are introduced in the production line to help increase production efficiency and replace human labour. Hence it is implemented in the simulation as well.
