Simultaneous Derivation of Container Stacking Strategy and Crane Dispatching Strategy for an Automated Container Yard
There are diverse factors which influence to terminal yard efficiency, such as type of equipment, number of equipment, operating policy, storage policy, and so forth. Once terminal infrastructures have been set, however, container stacking strategy and crane scheduling/dispatching strategy can be considered as practical elements to enhance yard efficiency.
Professor Ryu derives and proposes one of efficient strategy through the simulation. To accomplish such matters, he examined four alternatives by mixing two stacking method and two crane-scheduling method. He calculated and compared average AGV delay time and average ET waiting time of each combination. Please check the slide below and find out which combination resulted in the best yard performance.

This slide was presented by Professor Ryu from Busan University in LOGMS 2014 seminar and shared here with his approval. Busan University has cooperated with CyberLogitec for joint researches on container terminal technology.
