Performance, reliability, and performability of material handling systems. (English) Zbl 0951.90521
Summary: A number of different performance measures have been used in the design and analysis of material handling systems. These performance measures have measured either: (1) the entire manufacturing system (e.g. job throughput), or (2) the material handling system independently (e.g. vehicle travel distance). The following, is a review of performance. reliability, and performability measures used in the analysis and design of material handling systems in a manufacturing environment.
