Role in the project

ACT will focus and contribute to the following activities: Support in defining the industrial requirements for the fleet management (WP5), Support in defining the industrial requirements for Picking and Palletising (WP6) and Identification of main problems in existing warehouses in order to support the project requirements definition (WP7); design and development of a simulation model in order to evaluate the project’s solution in a discrete event simulation environment to tune the parameters and the management rules before to test the same in a real industrial scenario.
