Innovative, knowledge-based port control centers open up various new possibilities to the logistics systems of the future. In order to enable this, it is necessary to equip the so far “unintelligent” and “mute” goods and products in port handling with an appropriate level of “own intelligence”, so that they can find their way around the logistical system of the future on their own. The accompanying vision of a situation-dependent, intuitive monitoring, control and planning of port-related processes can be made possible due to the DYNAMICPORT system components. Decentralized data storage, the inclusion of internal and external knowledge structures and services as well as innovative visualization and monitoring methods allow for quick decisions on the basis of flat hierarchies.
Aim of the project
The project aims to create a consistent, process-oriented development and operating environment that is used to monitor, control and plan port-related processes in form of a modular and expendable logistics solution (port control center). Visualization, terminal and monitoring components are flexibly paired as part of an integrated system. This supports and makes the information access, control and dynamic simulation within cross-organizational logistics processes between several businesses, service providers and users possible.
