Considering the recent cost cutting measures and reduced transportation volumes relevance of optimizing such a plan cannot be understated. Though there’s a number of studies addressing the issue none of them covers all the operational and constructional constraints necessary to factor for. This article presents an integer model that tries to address some of the constraints missed by other researches. A method for solving the model is designed and developed based on a steady-state genetic algorithm. A numerical experiment is conducted showing the method’s feasibility.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.15.04.05}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ship Operation Problems, Master Bay Problem, Integer Model, Modified Integer Model, Genetic Algorithm (GA), Steady-State Genetic Algorithm, Numerical Experiment, Feasibility Study} }
