Supply chain planning and optimisation software firm Quintiq has been selected by Eurailscout to deliver improved integrated resource planning for its rail inspection and analysis operations.

Eurailscout currently carries out detailed inspections and analyses of more than 8,000 switches and 100,000km of track across Europe.

Quintiq’s solution will help Eurailscout with the allocation of appropriate maintenance resources, in order to reduce disruptions and ensure continued rail safety.

"Our technology was selected to help create a collaborative environment for Eurailscout’s planners that will lead to improved efficiency and compliance." 

Quintiq EMEA vice-president Arthur Torsy said: "Supporting Eurailscout’s workforce and resource puzzle is further testament to Quintiq technology’s capabilities in optimising complex rail infrastructure planning.

"Based on our experience in delivering integrated solutions to our clients in the rail sector, our technology was selected to help create a collaborative environment for Eurailscout’s planners that will lead to improved efficiency and compliance."

Earlier, Eurailscout was depending on Excel spreadsheets and bespoke systems to plan the resources required to inspect and monitor the infrastructure.

The new solution will be to synchronise data from the different planning teams to create an integrated plan for work orders, inspection trains, equipment and the workforce.

The integrated resource planning will be implemented by advanced planning and scheduling solutions provider Ab Ovo.

Ab Ovo will support Eurailscout planners to increase utilisation by allocating resources to work orders and predicting potential consequences of different allocation scenarios.

In addition, it will help to schedule the workforce in accordance with safety rules and labour laws.
