A distributed barge planning game

    Abstract

    In this paper, we address a complex issue in the coordination of supply chains: the optimization of the alignment of barge and terminal operations in the Port of Rotterdam. Our research goal is to design a distributed multiagent and service-oriented system architecture, which solves the barge handling problem through information exchange and a decision support system based on intelligent alignment of proposals. In order to validate this solution, we implement it by means of both a system and a management game, using web-service technology. We report our experiences with the game throughout its validation with domain experts.
