AITP Meeting

WEDNESDAY, FIELDTRIP  LA Metro (MTA) ASRS and Central Maintenance Facility (CMF) ,

Sept 23, 2015 , 7pm


Thanks to our Ted Rose, the tour on Wed in downtown LA will feature a detailed look at LA Metro’s state of the art inventory and automated material movement and storage system called Automated Storage and Retrieval  System (ASRS) at Metro’s Central Maintenance Facility (CMF) and central warehouse  located at 470 Bauchet Street in Los Angeles. The ASRS controls the Unit-Load (UL) and Mini-Load (ML) storage systems, Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) pallet delivery system and interfaces the warehouse operators and maintenance staff via an on-line application known an Dematic’s Equipment Management System (EMS). ASRS directs the operator receipt process, as well as picking and kitting, and directs the AGV system in delivery of materials to four of the six maintenance buildings in the Metro CMF complex.  Our very own Ted Rose will show the ROBOTS, cabling and client application.

ASRS interfaces with Metro’s Maintenance and Material Management (M3) system, by receiving orders from M3 and sending pick and store completion status back to M3. A brief overview of M3 and its interface will also be provided.

-          Transportation options:

1. Drive in to: CMF, located at 470 Bauchet St, Los Angeles, CA 90012 – meet at guard station at 7pm.   If driving in, take 101N and exit Vignes St (that’s easiest) or Exit 1C (think it says Cesar Chavez) if 101 is backed up, which is likely late in the day.  As you probably know, traffic on 5/101 in LA is generally horrible during rush hour; gets better before/after.


2. Trains: website) that Metrolink OC line trains 609 and 689 get into LA at 5:35PM and 6:20PM, respectively, and stop at the two stations (plus others) that I mentioned. 10 minute walk over to 470 Bauchet St, Los Angeles, CA 90012 (check the maps beforehand)- meet at CMF guard station at 7pm- located at 470 Bauchet St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

PLEASE RSVP to Cathy , so we know who is coming and how. Cathy has some room in her car and Ted Rose might be able to drive some  folks back to the Irvine Metrolink station.
