MOGLI: a decision support tool

MOGLI (Multilevel Optimization and Generic models for Lock operatIons) is a decision support tool for lock masters in ports and on inland waterways. The tool provides the lock masters with high-quality solutions for the problem at hand and allows for a quick comparison between suggested solutions.

The optimization module features high quality heuristics for fast decision making and exact methods for the best results when longer computation times are allowed.
MOGLI is part of ongoing research on the lock scheduling problem and is developed in close cooperation with the industry.
This research is funded by a IWT doctoral grant.
