Modeling & Simulation (M&S) has proved to be a day-to-day highly indispensable tool for complex systems design, management and monitoring. Therefore, the proposed research study aims at developing a simulation model to recreate the complexity of a medium-sized Mediterranean seaport and analyze the performance evolution of such system with particular reference to the ships turnaround time. After the input data analysis, simulation model development, verification and validation, a design of experiments (according to a 24 factorial experimental design) has been carried out in order to evaluate how some critical factors (i.e. inter-arrival times, loading/unloading times, number of cars and trucks to be unloaded/loaded) may affect the seaport performances. To this end an analysis of variance is performed and an analytical input-output meta-model, which can be used to evaluate the system performance, is determined.
