Plan for future port traffic and berth / cargo processing changes
SEABERTH Simulation is a 'what-if?' modelling tool to enable analysis and longer term planning in a stable environment, unaffected by daily planning. SEABERTH Simulation is designed for questions such as 'How might the port handle shipping levels expected in five years time?' or, 'What are the likely benefits of different infrastructure extensions?'
The Simulation can take current berth infrastructure, resources and constraints from Operational SEABERTH. The constraints and port configuration can be changed in the Simulation.
Vessel movements 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, for example, a required quantity in a time window, or to keep an inventory level within limits. This base set of vessel movements can be adjusted to give a scenario for simulation e.g. x% increase in arrivals of a particular category. The Simulation can maintain multiple 'what if?' scenarios allowing experimentation with numerous options for change, such as different infrastructures to deal with increased arrivals. SEABERTH Simulation has a comprehensive analysis framework to quantity the scenario being studied e.g. projected berth residence times or waiting times or demurrage.
