In the context of an expected but still uncertain growth in containers and trailers traffic, the customer – a major French seaport – needs to assess the resilience of its logistic infrastructures (current and future state) and the validity of a major investment plan.

Process modeling resulted in a set of holistic, unified representations of the ports infrastructures featuring the description of all relevant internal and external processes. It is later used as a key stepping stone to develop a modular and parametric formal Σ™ model.

Data processing was conducted by compiling historical logs and forecasts. It allowed to build a multi-years data model of the numerous logistic input and output flows of the port that covered stochastic phenomenon.

Business analysis and report: User could configure the logistic capabilities of the port in the digital twin and assess its performance and resilience through experiments involving various multi-year growth scenarios. Among other things, it revealed that the initial investment plan was likely oversized for some aspects and undersized for others.
