Simulation of Goods Unloading Process Based on Queueing Network
This paper uses stochastic, transient networks to simulate queueing network when cargos arrive at the terminals, which can estimate the queue length distribution over the run time. Because of the transient nature of the vehicles arrival, two propositions have been used in the model. The model can derive the state of the unloading queues, which looks forwards to improving in efficiency and service level.
