Logistic Stimulation

Zebec Marine Consultants & Services (ZMCS) uses software based simulation that serves as a decision making tool for improving performance. These are discrete-event simulation tools that are used for planning various processes which include logistics, warehousing, shipyard production, material flows and port operations. It evaluates facility layouts, solves bottlenecks, increases capacity utilization, improves throughputs, reduces lead times, determines buffer requirements, minimizes safety stocks or optimizes system control strategies.

Some key results that can be generated using simulation modeling are as follows:

Marine Logistics

Berth utilization

Adequacy of a berth can be evaluated for various conditions e.g. given throughput, system down times, peak demands etc.

Channel navigation study

Capacity evaluation for a channel based on various conditions e.g. entry conditions, exit conditions, turnaround time for the vessels, any future upgradation etc may be identified through a 'Channel congestion study' or 'Vessel congestion study' using the simulation software.

Material handling

Shipyard planning
