Solid Port Solutions
Key Success Factors to deliver your terminal automation project on time
EUROMAX Container Terminal in Rotterdam
With 16 STS, 58 ASC and 96 AGV until now the biggest one time delivery of a fully automated terminal
and the KHALIFA Port Container Terminal in Abu Dhabi
The first semi-automated terminal in the Middle-East with 6 STS, 30 ASC and 20 SC’sThe Approach
A specific ordering of work tasks and activities across time and place, with a beginning, an end, and clearly defined inputs and outputs. Business processes are the structure by which the organization physically does what is necessary to produce value for its customers.
Business Process Modeling:
BPM is the analytical representation to describe and communicate the current or intended future state of a business process in a structured manner so that it shows how the work gets done and by whom.
ADPC and ADT used NIMBUS CONTROL as a BPM Notation tool for describing all the business processes on the different levels in flow-chart like diagrams that can easily be understood by operations and IT.
Minimum number of studies:
4. End-user Involvement
During the project execution it is preferred option that the Testing & Commissioning process should be a joint effort for the Operator, the OEM and the TOS supplier in a
Collaborative Testing Strategy (CTS)
This integrated approach has following advantages:
- Shorter lead time of overall testing (no repeat!)
- Better use of the testing resources
- Direct involvement of the end-user
- Predefined Test scenarios & test cases based on BPM
- Clear acceptance criteria per Contract Milestone
- Defects administrated in one system (Quality Center)
- Clear governance structure to resolve conflicts with a
Triage Committee and Collaborative Testing Board
Testing Cycle per ASC block
ASC-2 / WS
Example 1 Stack lane with 2 ASC (Landside and Waterside)
TOS performance test by means of emulation (TBA Controls)
Example Khalifa Port, peak performance scenario full terminal:
WS : 390 mvs/hr
QC : 39 mvs/hr
LS: 300 mvs/hr
Yard density: max. 85%
2 Deep sea vessels
1 Feeder vessel
The emulation test resulted in 41.8 QC mvs/hr under realistic operational conditions
Continuous cooperation between OEM, Electrical supplier and operator is needed to reach the contractual MMBF figures
