In this paper we develop a closed queueing network model for a robotic milking barn. We present an approximative mean-value analysis of the model to evaluate important performance criteria such as the queue length, waiting time and utilization of the facilities in the barn. It is shown how the results from the queueing network analysis can support the discussion about the optimal design of the robotic barn.
