12.02.2020: Presentation by Prof. Dr. Dirk Briskorn

Prof. Dr. Dirk Briskorn (Full Professor for Production and Logistics at the University of Wuppertal): "Grantry Crane Scheduling in Seaports"


This presentation outlines typical setups of rail-mounted gantry cranes handling containers in a seaport terminal and formalizes scheduling problems. Regarding solution methods we, first, focus on a subproblem, a corresponding graphical model, and efficient solution methods and, afterwards, show how these can be employed in algorithmic frameworks to tackle the wholistic scheduling problems.
