Berth Allocation and Quay Crane Assignment

Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)

The new concept for integrated seaside operations planning comprises a deep integration of the BAP and the QCAP. The resulting problem, namely the Berth Allocation and Crane Assignment Problem (BACAP), is studied within this chapter. The first mathematical formulation of the combined problem of berth allocation and crane assignment has been presented by Park and Kim (2003). A new problem formulation has been provided by Meisel and Bierwirth (2009), which incorporates QC productivity determining effects. This new model is presented in Section 6.1 and solution methods are described in Section 6.2. Computational tests follow in Section 6.3. Section 6.4 concludes the BACAP study.
