Abstract

The paper develops a novel and broad metamodel of a generic Intermodal Transportation Network (ITN), devoted to provide a reference model for the real time management and control of such systems. In order to take operational decisions, the presented model describes in detail the ITN structure and dynamic evolution that is updated on the basis of the information obtained in real time by modern information and communication technologies tools. The proposed metamodelling approach consists in employing a top down procedure and is based on the UML formalism, a graphic and textual modelling language intended to describe systems from structural and dynamics viewpoints. Hence, the paper models a generic ITN starting from the network description and shows as an example the metamodel of one of the most important nodes that compose it: the port subsystem. To this aim, we present the main UML dia-grams describing the structure and dynamics of a case study
