A three-level, hierarchical system for yard crane (YC) management in container terminals and the algorithms for the bottom two levels were proposed in previous studies. The bottom two levels are responsible for YC job sequencing and intra-row YC deployment. This paper presents YC deployment strategies for inter-row YC deployment. The objectives are to(More)
In many simulation-based optimization algorithms, substantial amount of time is often required in the simulation experiments to evaluate the solutions to the problem. In some heuristic or metaheuristic algorithms a significant number of revisits to the same solutions are made when the search converges. We use the ATCRSS heuristic for job sequencing problems(More)
Yard crane (YC) dispatching in the operational planning of container terminals usually aims to minimize makespan of YC operations or waiting time of vehicles. We propose that minimizing the maximum tardiness of vehicle jobs at yard blocks will minimize the operational delay of the longest quay crane (QC). This will minimize vessel turnaround time which is(More)
