TBA - Simulation, Training and TOS for ports, terminals & warehouses

Virtual Reality TOS Training

Even the best TOS can not control a terminal without well trained operators. TBA Group uses CONTROLS as a Training Tool. This enables the user to interact with a “virtual terminal” by means of emulation; this allows the user to learn and apply concepts in an interactive manner that replicates a real life training in a controlled environment. This type of training is not only more practical in terms of time consumption, as experiments can be run faster than real time, but it also allows a more effective planning of training programs.

The emulation training tool can be used by mid-size container facilities to mega terminals and from conventional to fully automated terminals and covers 8 different types of TOS solutions.

– Improve capabilities of vessel planners

– Learn the impact of yard parameters in TOS

– Train advanced TOS features:

– Train equipment dispatchers

– Expert Decking, Autostow, PrimeRoute

Proven Success

TBA’s proven approach for this virtual training tool comes in a five step process:

Process mapping and requirements check- Implemented to ensure new TOS supports terminal processes and to provide solutions for gaps found between processes and functionality.

Organisational alignment- Modifications that align with new operational procedures are suggested for the organisation.

Performance and load testing- Tests are used to verify TOS operates according to necessary standards, in a steady pace and under peak load conditions.

Fine-tuning TOS parameters- The emulations used to fine-tune TOS parameters identifies and defines the optimal set of parameters to go live.

Training in virtual terminal environment- Users can interact with a virtual terminal to witness the impact decisions have on terminal performance.
