Ongoing market concentration and a shortage of low-cost labor is compelling the German industrial laundry sector to adopt innovated automated solutions. RFID tags in textiles facilitate the use of automated systems. This paper introduces a new approach to picking and storing clean laundry. We simulate the system at an early stage to detect potential flaws during the development phase. The consortium plans to have a working prototype by the end of 2019.
