Planning a Multi-Purpose Harbour with AnyLogic

Context

During the design phase of a multi-purpose harbour, a producer must ensure that the proposed system will allow required product throughputs to be met.

The problem is complex because of resource constraints, and additional considerations such as maintenance, weather delays, trucking of TEUs, and the impact of other shipments.

Key decision to be made: Do the proposed operating parameters meet the required throughput, and what additional resources are required to optimise bottle necks?

Modelling Approach

Evans & Peck utilised a discrete event simulation modelling approach to map the transportation, warehousing, and loading to ships of product.

Key benefits of the modelling tool developed include:
