Looking for an efficient port planning: analysis of Spanish Port System through artificial intelligence
Research Areas
  • Information technology and adata processing,
  • Civil engineering and architecture
Nowadays, society claim for efficiency and efficiency of managed resources, so, making-decision people look for transparency and good planning practices. In particular case of ports, many variables are involved on it, so Bayesian networks are a useful tool to make an efficient planning because this kind of networks allow to know relationships between variables, even when they are a great number of them. In order to facilitate this work, the following study is carried out in which, through the construction of a Bayesian network, the. Agent can know interesting information about how port variables are connected and can insert possible actions based on utility of their results, even when number of variables is high as occurs in planning and management of port terminals. There are a low number of studies related to this, so, our research includes more than 40 port variables, belonging to the four dimension of port sustainability. Main obtained conclusion shows that economic variables are the network parents in most of cases, so, their consideration is very important in planning decision-making. Their knowledge even allows to estimate probability of the rest of variables including in the network.
