  author={Mohammad Arani and Saeed Abdolmaleki and Maryam Maleki and Mohsen Momenitabar and Xian Liu},
This study offers a step-by-step practical procedure from the analysis of the current status of the spare parts inventory system to advanced service level analysis by virtue of simulation-optimization technique for a real-world case study associated with a seaport. The remarkable variety and immense diversity, on one hand, and extreme complexities not only in consumption patterns but also in the supply of spare parts in an international port with technically advanced port operator machinery, on…
