The Yard Management System is a client-server based system for monitoring a container's Life Cycle, the stages the container goes through while in the yard. The objective of Container Life Cycle management is to minimize the time required for a container to complete it's life cycle.

The cycle begins when the container arrives at a yard and ends when the container leaves a yard. While in the yard the location and/or status of a container may change one or more times. The container cannot begin a new life cycle until the previous life cycle is completed, (that is, its departure is recorded). Over time, the same container may arrive and depart from the yard many times. The Yard Management System identifies and tracks each container life cycle by carrier code, container number, and arrival date and time.

Parts of the System
