Automating and optimizing usage of precious resource
Berth Planning and Simulation (BPS) system is a planning system with fast forward simulation for berthing plan evaluation. It is a flexible tool which allows easy configuration of port and terminal layout, as well as operations parameters and policies.
BPS interfaces with berth booking system, terminal operating system, and AIS feeds, if a receiver is installed, for real-time tracking of berth demand and supply. An optimization engine running at the backend matches demand with supply by constantly searching for the best fit berthing location for the incoming vessels. A simulation engine assists the decision making by testing sensitivity scenarios and presenting the expected performance to users.
