Timetable creation: aims at increasing usage of railway infrastructure capacity and revenue. It provides decision support for long term and daily planning of train movements, producing the optimal allocation of stopping points and routes while respecting rolling stock restrictions.
Crew scheduling: assigns crew (train operating staff) to scheduled trains over a time horizon (generally a week) at minimal cost, while respecting operational and contractual requirements.
Rolling-stock scheduling and maintenance: allows operators to improve fleet reliability and availability with reduced maintenance budgets. Failure-based maintenance (corrective maintenance) and life-based maintenance (preventive maintenance) are both taken into account. Maintenance strategies affect system safety, customer satisfaction and total cost of operation.Back to archive
