Video Describes Port Design Process And Use Of Simulation

The application of real-time and fast-time simulation to port design problems is illustrated by a 20-minute videotape produced by Marine- Safety International (MSI), privatized operator of the Computer- Aided Operations Research Facility (CAORF) at the National Maritime Research Center in Kings Point, N.Y.

The video outlines the problems faced by ports in efficiently and safely handling today's larger ships.

Three examples are discussed: The Panama Canal, Oakland Harbor and Tampa Bay. The role of simulation in helping to solve the problems faced each of these areas is discussed and illustrated.

Task flow diagrams for desk-top Model 500BFM at Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates Circle 283 on Reader Service Card studies, fast-time simulations, and man-in-the-loop real-time simulations are described and compared.

The videotape is available for free loan by calling Capt. John Townley at (516) 773-5602, or writing to MSI/CAROF, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, N.Y.
