The container terminal operation systems can be classified by three different parts of major sub systems which are planning system, resource management system, and real-time control system. Especially, for improving the efficiency and productivity of container terminal, the planning system is the most important sub system in the operation systems because of processing highly increased the number of container loaded on board and of getting more important position in competition with other terminal.
The reason of this, the planning system, consists of the ship planning, yard planning and berth planning, is studied and practiced by many kinds of ways. However, the study of the integrated planning with real-time control system is seldom published. In particular, in yard planning system, there are so many ways to get benefits to plan if it could be integrated with real-time yard monitoring such as to get exact location of unexpectedly changed position of containers, to prevent interference of equipment in planed blocks, to consider the planning with loading patterns and so on.
To utilize these benefits in this paper, heuristic algorithms for the export yard planning, operated on monitoring system, one of the real-time control systems, are suggested and integrated export yard planning system are designed and developed.
