Simulation Study for Performance Measures of Resources in a Port Container Terminal
Yong-Seok Choi
In order to measure the performance of resources in a port container terminal, we conducted a state transition network simulation to model various equipment processes. The processes that container cranes and transfer cranes perform are idle, wait, move, and work Vehicles perform idle, wait, empty travel, and full travel. Bemuse cranes, vehicles, and vessels are movable entities and all equipment is classified as either a customer or server, we separated the various stages of the process based upon the state transition network. To validate the simulation results, a real system was used to illustrate the use of various measurements using the state transition network.
