TOPS Reporting Tool

Reporting Tool

A PDF capable reporting tool has been integrated into the TOS, as well as a standard export interface to programs such as Microsoft Excel. This applies to the new foundation TOPO Expert, as well as to the operational module TOPX Expert.

Big Data Analysis

Big Data

RBS has also integrated new heuristic algorithms, which enable the system to e.g. perform data handling using ‘Big Data’ analysis.

Automated Berth Planning

Automated Berth Planning

In addition to that, a new automated berth planning feature is included in the TOPX Expert version, which aims to set the standard for efficient operations.

Berth Planning Automation

Using new and smart algorithms to automate the berth planning, enhances the future operation from the beginning of the planning process down to the actual execution. This unique automated process, as well as the new intelligent algorithms, uses all available data, such as estimated discharge distances, the location of load cargo, and many more.

Berthing decision is based on Big Data, smart calculations, and brilliant visualization, making the daily tasks of your planners more effective and more efficient.

Berth Optimization and Yard Strategy

Highly sophisticated, practice proven algorithms, together with the unique RBS in-memory architecture, are the basis for true berth optimization, anticipating yard strategy, making berth planning more efficient and allowing an optimized equipment control.

TOPS Expert enables terminals to actually foresee what is going to happen during operations, avoiding unexpected events and improving speed, reducing turnaround times and increasing quality and service levels.
