MODELLING THE VICTORIAN GRAIN TRANSPORT SYSTEM

This research project is intended to aid our understanding of the functioning of the victorian grain handling system and to contribute to the rational analysis of capital investment and operating policy options which may be introduced into this system in future. A computer model is being constructed to simulate the grain handling task, from the time the grain leaves the farm until it is loaded on to the ship at the export terminal. This model will be used in a systematic evaluation of policies available to improve system capacity and operating efficiency (a). The no. Of the covering abstract for the conference is IRRD no. 239661.
