Combination lean manufacturing approach with simulation technique to improve mineral rail cars transportation

By looking to the reports from the past to the present, the amount of transported goods annually has increased.  Between all of the goods reported in annual reports, mineral cargoes take a considerable portion. Past studies have shown loading, and unloading processes occur in origin and destination take a lot of time during cargos logistics. It is vital to find an efficient way to facilitate transportation of goods from origins to destinations.  The focus of my work is to find efficient solutions for improving the part of mineral cargo logistics processes and increasing the share of railway transportation in the origins and destinations by using mathematical and management approaches.
