Planning Tools for Railway Operations and Train Operating Companies
Integrated planning of railway operations
The constant changes and progress in railway operations demand powerful, integrated planning and simulation tools. Funkwerk's suite of planning and management tools assists infrastructure developers, infrastructure operators, and train operators in building timetables and testing their robustness, simulating railway operations, fleet planning, and managing resources. This helps deliver effective railway operations - from strategic long-term planning to implementation of these plans in daily operation.
Planning tools for railways from Funkwerk:
RailPlan - Powerful tool that models rail infrastructure to a high level of detail and accuracy. RailPlan facilitates running time calculations and produces operational simulations that model the movement and interaction of trains.
PowerPlan - Fully integrated with RailPlan, this tool models the electrical supply network and the electrical requirements of trains. Use of this tool helps identify weaknesses and hotspots in the power supply network.
TrainPlan - Train scheduling and timetabling system which provides complete support to the railway operations planning process, including conflict detection and resolution. TrainPlan is used by infrastructure owners and train operating companies.
TTRA - Timetable Robustness Analysis tool used in conjunction with a timetable planning system to measure the resilience of timetables to everyday disruption.
ResourcePlan - Tool for fleet planning and crew scheduling. Used to deliver resource schedules matched to the timetables developed in TrainPlan.
ResourceManager - Decision support tool designed to manage the disposition of resources (rolling stock and crew) and also for the management of the maintenance and operational status of vehicles.
