A JavaDEVS simulation of a GRID Containment System
by Foss, Shannon, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 64; 1504460
Abstract (Summary)

This document describes the process of creating a simulation of the GRID Containment System using the JavaDEVS simulation software package. The GRID containment system is an automated and compact storage solution designed to help alleviate the ever-increasing problem of storing and retrieving intermodal cargo containers in a container terminal.

Containers are added to the GRID by means of Transfer Units, which are container hoists that move throughout the system moving containers between a freight train and the GRID storage area. This simulation will examine the effects of varying the dimensions of the GRID storage area, as well as the effects of adding additional transfer units to the system.
