Construction of Timetables

Timetable construction and maintenance

TPS is capable of rolling planning. This means that the system revolutionises conventional planning methods based on the traditional "copy-forward" principle. Working on current and future timetables will no longer happen without combining them. Instead, the "perpetual timetable" gets more and more independent of traditional timetable restrictions in the process of planning.

As a result, each change has to be entered into the plans only once – from a single location. And that means less time and trouble for data collection, less susceptibility to human error. Everything is connected with everything else in a single timetable. In this way, you can, for example, directly allocate a validity period for trains, which can also exceed the timetable period.

Automatism for more efficiency

TPS furthermore enables the integration of regulations for constructions into the timetable creation process, allowing a direct feedback from the construction zone regulations into the long-term or short-term timetable creation process. Information loss due to a lacking communication is now a thing of the past.

A cooperative multi-user regulation provides an efficient workflow in TPS. The communication between plannes dealing with different construction zone scenarios and continuously coordinate with one another is therefore improved. TPS supports planners with automatic train path search and in their search for solutions to any kind of conflicts.

Complete control over the timetable

Based on the train properties, TPS can calculate running times as well as arrival and departure times that deviate from the calculations – if changes in the infrastructure data are expected, for example. Thus, this makes perfectly clear how time allowances and reserves are used.

This gives your planners complete control over the timetable. Everyone is always completely clear about how time allowances and reserves are used.

TPS automatically identifies the regularities in the alteration of originally regular operating day patterns. Or take the train number allocation, for example: If there are different train numbers for one and the same physical train, TPS recognises this automatically and prevents to plan the train as two different trains.
