Report
Key Success Factors to deliver your
terminal automation project on time
TOC Europe, 26 June 2013
Joost Achterkamp
Managing Director
Solid Port Solutions
The Approach
The approach is based on the successful delivery of the
EUROMAX Container Terminal in Rotterdam
With 16 STS, 58 ASC and 96 AGV until now the biggest one time delivery of a fully
automated terminal
and the KHALIFA Port Container Terminal in Abu Dhabi
The first semi-automated terminal in the Middle-East with 6 STS, 30 ASC and 20 SC’s

1. Business Process Modeling
Business Process:
A specific ordering of work tasks and activities across time and
place, with a beginning, an end, and clearly defined inputs and
outputs. Business processes are the structure by which the
organization physically does what is necessary to produce value
for its customers.
Business Process Modeling:
BPM is the analytical representation to describe and
communicate the current or intended future state of a
business process in a structured manner so that it shows how
the work gets done and by whom.
BPMN
ADPC and ADT used NIMBUS CONTROL as a BPM
Notation tool for describing all the business processes on
the different levels in flow-chart like diagrams that can
easily be understood by operations and IT.

3. Design validation by Simulation
Minimum number of studies:
Berth capacity
Can your quay wall handle the predicted number of vessels?
Handling capacity
Does the system deliver you the designed performance under
a 24 hr peak load?
Storage capacity
Can your yard still perform under the predicted peak storage?
Sensitivity Analysis for various scenarios:
•
vessel types, arrival patterns and call sizes
•
quay lay-out under the crane
•
equipment numbers
•
various dwell times and seasonal patterns
3. Design validation by Simulation
• Every simulation study highly depends on the quality of the input
parameters
• Validation of the input parameters by Operations is essential and even
small changes can have a big impact on the result
• It is advised to look at ranges of productivity rather than at exact figures.
The actual operational influences will fluctuate and are not easy to
calculate by simulation
• It is also advised to check the input parameters during the execution of the
project, updated information can be a reason to adjust the design
assumptions
• Check the simulation results with a full terminal emulation study to validate
the performance of the TOS under peak load
4. End-user
involvement
4. End-user
Involvement
• The involvement of the operational and technical dept of
the end-user is key for a successful delivery in order to be
able to:
- Validate the simulation assumptions
- Give input to and sign off of the BPM
- Approve the functional design
- Define the Acceptance Criteria for both equipment and TOS
- Deliver the IT-infrastructure/hardware
- Assist the Testing & Commissioning team
- Phased hand-over over of areas
- Organize Go-Live tests
•
5. Integrated Testing & Commissioning
During the project execution it is preferred option that the Testing &
Commissioning process should be a joint effort for the Operator,
the OEM and the TOS supplier in a
Collaborative Testing Strategy (CTS)
This integrated approach has following advantages:
- Shorter lead time of overall testing (no repeat!)
- Better use of the testing resources
- Direct involvement of the end-user
- Predefined Test scenarios & test cases based on BPM
- Clear acceptance criteria per Contract Milestone
- Defects administrated in one system (Quality Center)
- Clear governance structure to resolve conflicts with a
