Optimal Operational Mode Analysis
In order to select the optimal operational mode that offers the best compromise between the various requirements and constraints such as Throughput capacity, Real-estate, Capex and Opex ... a feasibility study of several mode of operations is carried out and the results are benchmarked side by side to return the NPC/TEU, Capex/TEU; Opex/TEU, TEU/Hectares and TEU/quay meter. allowing the Terminal management to make an informed decision.
Detailed Capacity & Throughput Analysis (Supply & Demand)
The Terminal supply & demand analysis also known as Operational Capacity Modelling consist of a mathematical analysis per module of operations at the initial stage and later as full end to end terminal operations stock and flows capabilities.
The operational modules follow the natural cargo flow in the terminal, starting by the Waterside operation, followed by Yard, Gate and Rail operation; Identifying at each stage the throughput Capacity, the Occupancy as well as the handling equipment requirements.
Other Operational calculations are done to identify the Equip running Hours, Energy consumption and Emission Calculation.
After the Mathematical analysis, a sensitivity analysis is undertaken in complex cases where a higher degree of certainty is required. this sensitivity analysis allows to test different scenarios and business assumptions and validate the selected operational concept.
TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is a calculation method that determines the overall cost of the equipment throughout its life cycle.
OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is the standard for measuring equipment productivity. Simply put – it identifies the percentage of time that is truly productive.
