Overview:

This project aims to develop a stowage plan generation and optimization engine that will: (1) generate stowage plan according to industry standard format so that the plan can be used for stability checking; (2) allow the optimization of the stowage plan based on different ship stability and sailing condition requirements, as well as the handling cost over single and multiple port calls.
