Abstract

In this paper we present a simulation based analysis of a service robot operating in a textile mill. The robot's function is to locate and service the operating units which require the servicing. The main purpose of the analysis is to determine the "best" movement decision for the robot in each instance. We present a simple simulation experiment which clearly illustrates that an increase in production output can be realized with the help of modestly sophisticated decision rules for the robot's movement.
