Port SimulationRequest More Info
SEABERTH Simulation is a ‘What-if?’ modelling tool. It enables the scheduler to carry out analysis and strategic experimentation in an accurate and stable modelling environment, completely unaffected by daily planning. SEABERTH Simulation is designed to answer such questions as:
- How will the current port infrastructure handle the increased number of vessel calls expected in five years- time?
- What infrastructure investments should we make?
- What are the likely commercial and operational benefits of investing in another berth and when will we see a return on the investment?
The Simulation module can take current berth infrastructure, resources and constraints directly from the SEABERTH operational module. Vessel movements for a simulation scenario can start from the current operational schedule, an experimental plan or from historical vessel movements. Alternatively shipping patterns can be constructed by “wizard” tools to achieve a required quantity of vessel type / cargo types within a specific time window. The system can also be tasked to plan a lifting / delivery schedule that will keep an inventory level within prescribed limits.
The Simulation module has a KPI summary page and options to drill down into each KPI to understand the details behind the result. Results are presented to the user in graphical, chart and tabular formats. The user can maintain multiple ‘What if?’ experimental scenarios for comparison of results in key performance areas, to aid decision making.
