This Article is a simulation example in the case of the tug and barge system. Systems variables and the structure of the program as well as the simulation techniques are given detailed description. The program can be useful in analysing ship technology in its type and operation. Such analysis could be used for establishing the requirements for a transportation system and as a preliminary to ship design in its outlines. Fleet simulation is a valuable tool for exploring new ways, especially when experience fails, which is the case with tugs and barges being operated as described here. In analysing tug/barge operations computer support is preferable since the conditions for favourable application are critical. However there may well be a solution for application in specific situations and computer support should not be prematurely rejected. Order from: BSRA as No. 46,995.
