Summary: The automated warehouse considered here consists of a number of rack locations with three cranes, a narrow aisle shuttle, and several buffer stations with the roller. Based on analyzing of the behaviors of the active resources in the system, a modular and computerized model is presented via a colored timed Petri net approach, in which places are multicolored to simplify model and characterize control flow of the resources, and token colors are defined as the routes of storage/retrieval operations. In addition, an approach for realization of model via visual c++ is briefly given. These facts allow us to render an emulate system to simulate a discrete control application for online monitoring, dynamic dispatching control and off-line revising scheduler policies.
