Based on the positive consolidated feedback from clients, constant development, and innovative ideas, RBS is proudly introducing the latest version of the ‘TOPS’ TOS Application, TOPS Expert. This newly improved and highly advanced system focuses on implementing an even more solid system architecture. RBS is now offering the only true real-time TOS on the market with new functionalities such as automatic search and quick navigation of the system.

RBS TOPS Expert analyzes ‘Big Data’ to facilitate terminals with their daily operations in managing their tasks more efficiently. The smart solutions in TOPS Expert will increase customer service, use resources more efficiently, increase revenue, allow for better control, and contribute to the environment.

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

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

Automated Berth Planning

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

Using new and smart algorithms to automate the berth planning enhances future operations right 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.

The berthing decisions derived on TOPS Expert use ‘Big Data’ to produce smart calculations and generate brilliant visualizations, driving an exponential increase in effectiveness and efficiency in managing daily tasks.

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

TOPS Expert enables terminals to foresee what is going to happen during operations, avoiding unexpected events and improving speed. Not only does this reduce turnaround times but also increases quality and service levels.
