    Abstract

    A discrete even simulation is developed for the first container terminal of Hamad's new port of Qatar which is anticipated to start its operations by the end of 2016. The model is based on the operational knowledge of experts from the current port of Doha and Qatar's port authority (Mwani). The challenge in this paper is validating a simulation for a system that has not started its operation. Nonetheless, data and configuration of the current port has been utilized to partially validate the output of the simulation. The preliminary analysis shows promising results and indicate the validity of the model.
