Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) handle the complex operations of container loading and transporting at bays and ports. As they need to run fairly consistently and efficiently to avoid causing delays, operators need to practice and perfect what course of action to take in certain scenarios. Emulation is a combination of simulated control systems and real-time control
logic systems. Emulation allows operators to view yard layouts and assess the arrangement of tiers and rows of equipment, containers, and loading bays. Transport specialists can research best practices to solve operational problems such as potential collisions and vehicle deadlocks. Operators can implement numerous logical control strategies to enhance deployment. Emulation reduces risk and helps in training operators to run large terminal operating systems.
