This article proposes an highly developed fully automatic ASRS (automatic storage and retrieval system). This main material management support system is generally used for storing and retrieving the unprocessed materials in the manufacturing unit. The necessities of ASRS are increasingly of a more dynamic nature for which new models will need to be developed to overcome the time consumption. ASRS consists of a range of controlled systems for automatically retrieving and storing loads from preferred storage spaces. It is usually used in applications where there is a very high quantity of loads being moved into and out of storage. This system is mainly used for storing and retrieving the unprocessed materials in a manufacturing unit. The main aim of this paper is to build up an automatic system from the present system. The original idea of the article is to help public those who work as operators by designing a system where it is capable of managing the drawer without interference of an operator. The performance of the present system is enhanced by using PLC integration where it coordinates the operation and control of ASRS.
