On MPA’s invitation, SimPlus has set up a base at the Maritime Innovation Lab (MIL). The ongoing research project for a Proof-of-Concept for Just in Time Planning and Coordination System is parked under the MIL setup.
The MIL is part of the broader MPA Living Lab efforts and consists of both physical and digital aspects to serve as a co-creation platform for innovation. The purpose-built facility will create an environment that enables experimentation and the test-bedding of innovative port services and intelligent ship operations. It also supports the Sea Transport Industry Transformation Map through encouraging open innovation and R&D partnerships among industry, regulator and the research and technology communities. Through the MIL setup, SimPlus will continue actively engaging in the latest innovation projects for the maritime industry.
