    This paper considers the coordination between quay cranes and yard cranes in a transshipment process at a container terminal. An optimization model (a linear-integer program) is developed to minimize the number of cranes ...
  • Khoueiry Y.; Srour I.; Yassine A. (, 2012)
    Fast-track construction projects have become more popular in recent years in response to growing industry demand. By allowing a downstream activity to start with incomplete information from upstream activities, fast-tracking ...
