Dynamic programming is one of the optimization methods used in operation research. Decision models and their solutions developed for problems that have been dealt with in one set of decisions that follow one another and are mutually influential can be examined under the heading dynamic programming. On the other hand, it is enough for the application of dynamic programming that the problem examined is one that can be divided into sub-problems related to one another or that the decision model developed for a problem is transformed into interdependent decision models. The purpose of this study is to find the shortest way to establish an Automatic Guide to Vehicle (AGV) line in an enterprise. Application was developed by using the dynamic programming method in MS Excel VBA. Products are transported as soon as possible. In this way, the efficiency of the Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) has been increased.
