Abstract—Agent Oriented Storage and Retrieval (AOSR) WMS planner algorithm is a part of the general Agent Oriented Smart Factory (AOSF) framework, which provides a comprehensive Supply Chain (SC) architecture to help bridge the gap between Industry 4.0 standards and SME-oriented setups. This paper provides validation of AOSR algorithmwith respect to time efficiency on top of substantially improved performance efficiency in SME-oriented warehousing operations. This article, which is a part of a series of recent contributions, explains the efficiency of AOSR WMS planner algorithm in scenario-based test cases with experimentation in certain WMS Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

Index Terms— Agent oriented smart factory (AOSF),small tomedium size enterprises (SMEs), cyber-physical systems (CPS),agent-orientedstorage and retrieval system (AOSR),warehouse management system (WMS)
