The large scaling and automation of stevedore facility is progressing in container terminal according to modernization of maritime transportation today. The improving productivity of container work highly depends on the operating efficiency of container crane because the bottle neck exists on container crane work in the transportation of container.
A study on automation or reduction of working time using the various control techniques is limited due to uncontrollable working condition near the ship. The personal ability of operator is very important and the difference of productivity can not help showing according to difference of personal ability
Thus, improving the skill of crane operator is important in special working condition for example, weather, decline of container ship for rapid works. This leads to reducing the economic loss and the waste of working time with low rate of safety accidents.
The operation training of real crane demands high cost and complicate training process. Therefore the development of container crane simulator is necessary to solve such problems. the simulator must have the various working condition, low training cost, no danger.
This paper presentes the development of training simulator which has adjustable working environment and changable foreign product.
The simulator can be operated in real time and has sway of spreader, display, sound and operating sequence like a real working condition.
In the work the mathematical equations of spreader sway, and effective the three dimensional graphic technique, and development environments for developing simulator are studied.
The developed simulator can provide an economic and technical effectiveness for expert training of container crane operators.
