In this paper, an object-oriented simulation modeling environment is presented to provide flexible modeling capabilities for simulation of many alternative automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems. The modeling capabilities of this environment are demonstrated by designing and simulating a conceptually different configuration of AGV systems, known as the tandem configuration. Between the tandem and conventional AGV systems, the characteristics and object-oriented design methodology are described. Also, the performances of these systems are compared in the object-oriented simulation modeling environment.
