Offshore wind energy can play a key role in the energy transition. Reducing installation costs for offshore wind installation projects helps to be cost-competitive with other renewable energy technologies. Installation costs can increase when the installation project planning is delayed. Literature shows that offshore wind installation projects...

This study integrates strategic decisions and operational control systems in autonomous shipping. By providing ships with situational information and adding a virtual operator, we show that vessels can make informed choices regarding their route and engine settings. To demonstrate this integration, we developed new components that were tested in...

The worlds awareness of our emissions and the effect it has on our surroundings is increasing. This influences efforts to put new agreements into place to reduce emissions and the effects on global warming. Along with the Paris agreements, the International Maritime Organisation also came with measures to achieve these needed reductions of...

This master thesis focuses on the effect of variabilities in a Power &amp; Free conveyor system on the flow continuity by an analysis on the product, process and production level (3P), a discrete-event simulation model and the theory of Cyber-Physical Production systems (CPPS) to control the product flow. Scenarios were evaluated with this model...

In this paper, model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and discrete event simulation (DES) are combined to assess the performance of an offshore production system at an early stage. Various systems engineering tools are applied to an industrial case concerning the retrieval of deep-sea minerals, and a simulation engine is developed to...

Background: Surgical process model (SPM) analysis is a great means to predict the surgical steps in a procedure as well as to predict the potential impact of new technologies. Especially in complicated and high-volume treatments, such as parenchyma sparing laparoscopic liver resection (LLR), profound process knowledge is essential for...

This study evaluates the impact of operational philosophy on the efficiency of omni-channel warehouses. Suppliers want to integrate an online order channel in existing infrastructure, while efficient integration of omni-channel operations is challenging due to the difference in nature of e-commerce orders and store orders. Integration of...

Illicit supply chain networks are not well mapped. Regulators do not know how goods flow from supplier to retailer. There is uncertainty about whom is involved, where goods originate from, and what quantities are being shipped. Simulation models are effective tools to find measures against the distribution of illicit goods such as personal...
