Regardless of network complexity or specific operational rules, our solution can be incorporated in any railway operations centre to enhance traffic management efficiency by devising train scheduling in real-time.
Our company was founded in 2015, with its headquarters located in Campinas, Brazil, where we were able to tap into the region’s thriving technological scene, which features some of the top research centres in Latin America. Spearheaded by accomplished railway professionals with over 20 years’ experience in the business, the Rail Movement Planner™ solution was developed by uniting such expertise with the latest technology and specialised software developers.
Rail Movement Planner™ (RMP) is endorsed by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP, Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) and the Brazilian Agency for Innovation (FINEP, Financiadora de Estudos e Projetos).
By approaching the issues faced by railway operations as a puzzle, RMP puts powerful algorithms and heuristics to work to develop traffic plans and tests which can take account of any future impact on service. RMP calculates traffic plans for complex networks within a few seconds, which means that its dynamic, highly-updateable plans can be used to assist decision-making in real-time.
With such a powerful tool, traffic controllers can test and adjust train operation with immediate access to whatever consequences the current plan may have, thereby improving efficiency. You can see how this works in the video below.
On a day-to-day basis, RMP helps traffic controllers by delivering effective traffic plans. The ability to generate train graphs quickly reduces the controller’s workload and provides more time for analysis and critical decision making leading to better results. Indeed, by leaving the more mechanical and repetitive tasks to RMP, controllers can play a more strategic role and realise their full potential.
How does RMP improve your results?
With better traffic planning, your operation can make better use of its assets and improve its throughput and efficiency, significantly affecting the bottom line. RMP provides:
Furthermore, through simulation and by using new operational data, RMP allows investment scenarios to be evaluated before implementing new procedures and spending more capital. By using the massive amount of information processed by the solution, numerous training options emerge which will improve productivity and achieve best practice.
RMP’s integration layer, which is based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), supports any enterprise software integration patterns. It is also compliant with industry standards regarding security and usability.
By mediating the data with the WSO2 Enterprise Integrator middleware, RMP enables several analyses and reports to be produced for activities such as training and auditing. Check out our blog to learn more.
We have improved our commissioning process to promote demonstrations and trials and even fully remote installations. This means it takes no time at all to discover how fast, flexible, and easy it is to install Rail Movement Planner™ in your operations centre using information from your own rail network.
