Abstract: Vessel rotation planning concerns the problem of assigning rotations to vessels over a number of terminals for loading and unloading containers in a large port. Vessel operators and terminal operators communicate with each other to make appointments about the rotation plans for the vessels. However, it happens frequently that these appointments cannot be met. Thus, it is important to generate the rotation plans for the vessel operators in an efficient automated way. In this paper, we propose an approach to solve the vessel rotation planning problem by modeling the problem as a layered distributed constraint optimization problem (DCOP). To evaluate the performance of the proposed approach, combinations of three DCOP algorithms are considered, namely, Asynchrounous Forward Bounding, Synchrounous Branch and Bound, and Dynamic Programming Optimization Protocol. We evaluate the solution quality and computational and communication costs of these three algorithms when solving the vessel rota tion planning problem using the proposed layered formulation. (More)
