There are few comments that the authors should address:
1. The recommendation to use 24 to 30 AGVs should be associated with size of the factory and workload,
2. Try to compare your approach with and without the edge servers, since these servers is adding extra cost,
3. the paper needs to be proofread.

This paper proposed an architecture utilizing edge servers to allocate logistic jobs to AGV in smart factory system. Through the simulation results, the paper demonstrated that the proposed system shows high performance in a specific edge computing setting. The paper is well-written and easy to follow. One weak point of this paper is the lack of introduction of related works and comparative analysis with them.
