Abstract: Automated Storage and Retrieval System is a new scheme which enables container port operations to avoid the stacking of containers in the container yard. It does so by storing containers into shelves which enables the operators to retrieve a container without unstacking them. It hopes to reduce the port operations time and therefore saving valuable resources. In order to see how efficient the ASRS could be, a simulator is created to show how it would behave in a simulated environment. The simulator uses agents to carry out the storing and retrieving processes. This report discusses what rules are applied on the agent in order for it to achieve the correct behavior. The ASRS has various policies to streamline the efficiency of the storage and retrieval processes. The main objective of this report is to study how these policies and variables affects the efficiency of the ASRS system.
