Optimization problems such as resource allocation, job-shop scheduling, equipment utilization and process scheduling occur in a broad range of processing industries. This paper presents modeling, simulation and optimization of a port facility such that effective operational management is obtained. A GA base approach has been integrated with the port system model to optimize its operation. A case study of bulk material port handling systems is considered.
