Designing efficient contemporary ship recycling yards through discrete event simulation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Today, the ship recycling industry is going through a transitional phase in order to comply with the new regulations which are forcing ship recycling yard owners to invest and improve yards. One way to compensate these investments is to optimise the current process and increase the efficiency; however, in the literature there is a gap on detailed approach to optimization of ship recycling processes. This paper aims to develop a framework for the ship recycling industry in order to improve and optimise the ship recycling procedures. This aim is achieved through preparation of simulation models in the ARENA software with current and alternatives practices/processes for every step of ship recycling. The simulation framework developed has been applied for a ship recycling yard in EU as a case study. Bottlenecks in the current process were identified and through simulations alternative solutions were considered to optimise the process. Potential improvements for the yard with simulation approach were summarized in this paper.
