Optimised Cost-Effective Unit Diagramming

Best practice rolling stock planning supports rail and public transport companies in minimising their costs, while making sure that the planning is robust and reliable.

When rolling stock is repetitive, maintenance can be planned on time to ensure safety and prevent disruptions.
Best practice unit diagramming is key to:

  • Minimising operating costs by minimising unit diagrams and empty repositioning
  • Maximising the utilisation of rolling stock
  • Increasing customer satisfaction by allocating the required rolling stock for each service

Better unit diagramming takes into account the start and end location of a unit, so empty repositioning is minimised. It also results in optimised compositions because the unit diagrams match demand, and the various types of rolling stock.

Join our expert, Dirk Jekkers, for a webinar on increasing customer satisfaction and cost-effectiveness with optimised unit diagramming.

We will explore how you can deliver optimised unit diagrams while ensuring safety and increasing the robustness of your plan. Find out how you can prevent potential disruptions by adding slack time and how you can integrate:

  • Business rules and constraints
  • Business KPIs
  • Various rolling stock types such as loco, wagons, sets, etc.

Register also for our webinar on crew diagramming on 1 October. Registration for the final webinar of this series on October 29 ‘Getting the competitive advantage in franchise bidding’ will open soon.
