Abstract

See full text

A storage and order-picking system and method characterized by a shelf arrangement having shelves, vertical conveyors, and autonomously movable, driverless transport vehicles (FTF) with an FTF plane which is substantially barrier-free and which extends under, over or through the shelf arrangement. The FTF plane is coupled to the shelf arrangement by conveyor technology via the vertical conveyors. The FTF plane has a travel surface with a topology of travel points and segments along which the FTFs move in a guided manner, the segments each extending from one travel point to another adjacent travel point. A fleet manager produces and outputs travel orders for the FTFs, the orders comprising individual navigation information, in order to transport the storage goods, which are not yet transported to the FTF plane by the vertical conveyors in an absolute order, along individual travel paths specifically produced for the FTF away from/to the vertical conveyors.
