Demand-Driven Port Development

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Carriers, Port & Maritime Training

The ultimate reason to develop ports is to stimulate exports or imports, not to satisfy shipping companies. However, most ports are very attentive to the demands of their customers – too attentive. Sure...

Leveraging Virtual Reality

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Port & Maritime Training

The perception of automation is that robots relieve human beings from repetitive tasks and that process automation brings stability and predictable performance to a container terminal, thereby increasing...

Innovation E-Learning

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Port & Maritime Training

Maritime Security and particularly the security of port facilities and ships assume significant importance in the light of security challenges facing them like terrorism and piracy, among others and consequentially...

Consistent Training

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Container Handling, Mega Ship Ready, Port & Maritime Training, Shipping, Terminal Focus

Today’s trainee is Rory, and it's his very first time operating a ship-to-shore crane. Yet, in gusting 40mph winds in a cab 53 metres from the Liverpool quayside, he's already moved five stacks of 40ft...


Are TOS Efficient Enough for SMTs?

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Container Handling, Port & Maritime Training

SMT's show strong willingness to change and improve, but they need to do so with little investment, and limited impact. Not only do they need pre-configured software, but they also need a provider who comes...

How Simulation Improves Port Operations

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Container Handling, Port & Maritime Training, Port Focus

Vessel sizes have increased exponentially due in part to the new Panama Canal. But even before it opened, the pressure was there for larger ships. In the 70s, we saw larger tankers, VLCCs and ULCCs appeared...

Virtual Reality The Next Evolution in Operator Training

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Port & Maritime Training, Port Focus, Port Planning & Finance

A VR training system brings four primary advantages; cost effectiveness, field of view, parallax, and depth perception. Traditional simulators use projectors or flat panel displays to provide a view into...

Training Solutions for A Changing Industry

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Port & Maritime Training

Terminal operators and port authorities have been focused on the intricacies and economies of the public-private evolution of seaports. However, for the most part, the learning needs of the workforce have...

Power Up Your TOS

  Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue     Automation and Optimisation, Container Handling, Port & Maritime Training

There are two factors that impact decision-making in terminal operations: complexity and unpredictability. Complexity is straight forward; how complicated is the terminal environment (e.g., a highly standardized...
