Planning of vessel, yard and equipment at terminals is of increasing importance of the scale and density of operations is ever-increasing. Minimizing unproductive moves, avoiding QC clashes, working in unproductive vessel sequences, working plugged reefers, not twinning 20's are just a few examples of opportunities for productivity improvement that we found when analyzing live plans across a large group of terminals.
For this purpose, we developed an assistance tool, called 'plan verification tool'. This tool checks for a large series of common errors made in plans almost instantaneously, and lists them in a clear report, pointing at the specific work queues, work instructions, yard areas or equipment that is involved, so that a planner can easily correct the errors.
The tool works seamlessly with SPARCS 3.x as well as SPARCS N4, as such covering a large range of terminals. The tool can be trialled for a test period.
