An important issue in the operational control of an automated job shop is the prevention and resolution of shop deadlocks. In this paper, we discuss the problems and solutions of deadlocks in manufacturing systems with automated guided vehicle systems, describe a banker’s algorithm for the control of material flow in job shops, and present the results of simulation experiments to compare the performance of several deadlock handling methods.
