Abstract (english): 
Purpose: For new planning or redesigning of existing logistical nodes it is important to use areas and technical equipment for handling, transport and storage as efficiently as possible. Layout planning and logistic simulation are used separately in the development and planning of logistic nodes. In the field of combined transport facilities, planning is in most cases limited to the static layout according to common parameters by classical planning instruments.
Methodology: By applying the ISI-Plan tool the layout and configuration of an existing inland terminal is parameterized and implemented via the surface visTABLE®. Consequently, the arrangement of infrastructure modules such as storage blocks, lanes and tracks are modelled. The same applies to the superstructure used.
Findings: The functionality of combining both methods via one interface could be demonstrated. Due to the complexity of the terminal which was reflected in high computing times, it was necessary to work with a downscaled model in order to obtain performance statements.
Originality: The innovative ISI-Plan application makes it possible for the first time for a wider spectrum of operators of logistics nodes to analyze, evaluate and modify the prevailing situation in an uncomplicated manner. Compared to conventional procedures, it is possible in a significantly reduced scope of time.
