THE PORT-TRANSSHIPMENT SYSTEM DYNAMICS SOFTWARE SIMULATOR

Josko Dvornik, Ante Munitic

Abstract

Port is place of interlace of different kindle of cargo, and play important role in shipping process, connecting different type of traffic in one united system, and form interrupted traffic chain. The aim of this paper is: to show the efficiency of System Dynamics Simulation Modeling during the study of the dynamics behavior of the Port-Transshipment system, and to find optimal solution for transshipment with regard to type of the cargo and size of traffic of the cargo, direction and dynamics of arriving and shipping the cargo. The System Dynamics Modeling is in essence special, i.e. “holistic” approach to the simulation of the dynamics behavior of natural, technical and organization systems, and it contains quantitative and qualitative Simulation Modeling of various natured realities. The concept of optimization in System Dynamics is based on belief that the “manual and iterative” procedure, i.e. optimization by the method “retry and error” can be successfully executed using “heuristic optimization” algorithm, with the help of digital computer, and in complete coordination with System Dynamics Simulation Methodology.
