The travel time models of automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS’s) have been widely used in distribution and production environments. This paper extends previous work presented on impact design aspects of automated storage/retrieval systems by determining the expected cycle travel time for single command. Our new study improves the throughput performance rate of new AS/RS’s design on cycle travel time that will be specified by estimating travel time for dual command to serve as storage and retrieval (S/R) machine using a parallel wire-based Stewart-Gough platform (parallel wire robot). This improved efficiency in new design is called Stewart-Gough Platform based Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (SGP-AS/RS’s). A numerical case study has been presented to clarify the travel time analysis based on mini unit-load storage and retrieval system. The improved throughput has been demonstrated by making a comparison between the conventional AS/RS results and the (SGP-AS/RS’s) results in the numerical case study. The effectiveness and ability of (SGP-AS/RS’s) has been proofed by determining the expected travel time for single command and dual command for random and classed-based analysis of storage assignment.
