Abstract:

A project was conducted as the first phase of a multi-phase program to develop and demonstrate an automated management control system for public marine terminals. The objectives of the Phase I effort were as follows Identify the requirements for control of containerized cargo in various categories of public marine terminals Define a family of concepts for an automated management control system that would satisfy the identified requirements Develop and apply a methodology for assessing the impact of various automation concepts on terminal financial performance and operational effectiveness Explore the potential extension of the automation concept beyond the terminal boundaries to permit 1 additional information users, and 2 shared resources, and to Develop a detailed plan for implementing Phase II of the overall program.
