STUDY ON THE OPTIMIZATION OF MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM IN BULK STORAGE YARDS

This article describes a method and a concept for determining the optimum specifications for the entire materials handling system in the design stage of a port's yard. An example of the application of this method is given. This simulation system can be very useful in determining the following items: storage capacity of a yard; layout of a yard; capacity of the materials handling machinery; set-up of the materials handling machinery; method of system management; and planning of storage.
