01. DESIGN STUDY
You are not sure whether the terminal design drawn will allow you to achieve the throughput or performance? Does your design fit to your anticipated terminal business? How does the terminal extension fit into the whole picture? We can help you reviewing your terminal design and evaluate different strategies and terminal layout options. We can help you evaluating the design options in a study. Our consultants using our CHESSCON Simulation and Capacity tool will make a simulation of the port and the yard layout. This dynamic terminal simulation will help you choosing the right yard layout and the right setup for your equipment. We can also support you with choosing the rights steps to develop your greenfield or brownfield terminal. It can also give a preview on your carbon footprint simulating the CO2 emissions for the terminal.
02. OPTIMIZATION STUDY
How does the terminal layout design manage peak traffic? Is automation a valid option and if so, which kind of automation? How to optimize the brownfield terminal? Using our CHESSCON toolset we can evaluate the terminal design in a high level study or down to detailed simulations using CHESSCON Shift Preview. Here we can compare different approaches to the terminal operations and planning. The study can show which equipment could be best or how to optimize planning strategies. Evaluating pooling options, TWIN lift or different planning strategies can help you tuning your TOS. Using our CHESSCON Virtual Terminal we can help your process improvement team to evaluate new settings in your TOS and move into the right direction before actually trying it in real operations. Thus your planners will become Grandmasters in terminal operation.
So far training has been static? TOS training was focused on functionality and features? To boost your staff skills and increase the training value, we can have real scenario training with your TOS and have the users train in a real environment. The real TOS is used and real planning and operation is executed with CHESSCON pushing the users into pressure situation and trouble shooting to enable them to handle this using the TOS. Evaluate the planning output in a training lab to distinguish the best planner. Using our dynamic scenario training can increase you staff skill whether it is on a greenfield site getting ready or have a enhancement training or re-fresh training at your existing terminal.
