Container Terminal Simulation Software with Enhanced Design leading Effective Job

By | 26/08/2014

How Easy UI for Users Made a Difference for Effective Job in Container Terminals

To move a container at a harbor, RTG(Rubber Tyred Gantry Crane) and ITV(In Terminal Vehicle) must participate in the same job. Good communication between these two is required for finishing a job. Eagle Eye VMT(Vehicle Mounted Terminal) is a terminal application system capable of container terminal simulation. It gives a job order to ITV and RTG operators working at the container terminal to carry and stack containers fast, accurately and effectively.

Painpoint & Improvements

ITV | As-is

 ITV as-is | Container Terminal Operating System  
●Hard to intuitively understand the current location and status.
●Jobs are numbered. Secondary Interpretation is required.
●Job list does not have priority classifications.
 

ITV | To-be

Focus on the necessary information for each phase without additional controls by users, in order to improve the information awareness.
●By providing the visual information for each order execution phase, it can help overall understanding of the current order execution progress.

●Only provides the necessary information for the current phase to minimize confusions.
●Presents visual information of destinations and order types to help easy awareness.

●Hard to know the current location and status.
●Causing confusions by providing unnecessary information.
●Providing data sorted by date, which is irrelevant to job execution.
●No classification of jobs. Hard to understand the jobs to be executed.

 
RTG | To-be

User perspective visual information to minimize the learning process and to help effective understanding of the current condition
●Displays the RTG location and the screen changes depending on the RTG job condition. So, you can intuitively understand the current condition.
●Shows orders of the left/right to the current RTG location to help workers easily understand their business.
●Notifies the ITV condition and location for co-working to minimize the working hours.
●Visually provides the container information to help understanding.
