Simulation study of the maintenance centre Tübingen finished
Friday, 30 August 2013 00:00

The simulation study of train care center near german town Tübingen has been concluded successfully during the summer of 2013. The main goal of the simulation study was to investigate the new track configuration of the yard and to examine the consequences of increased traffic on the operation of Tübingen railway junction (including passenger station). Inner cleaning, outer cleaning, refueling and depot maintenance processes were all included in the model, as were the train and shunting movements and personnel assignments. Timely train departures and execution of all required operational tasks belonged to the most important criteria for the evaluation of the maintenace centre operation.

Simulation of sidings at coal mine OKD Darkov
Tuesday, 04 September 2012 00:00

The simulation of sidings at the OKD coal mine in Darkov near czech town Ostrava was concluded in June 2012. The study focused on the identification of maximal capacity for loading railcars at the Darkov underground coal mine and preparation plant. The simulation model was not constrained to the Darkov mine sidings only and included several other nearby sidings; the modelling of personnel and shunting equipment operations were an integral part of the study. The simulation model was also utilised to support several strategic decisions regarding the loading, transport and storage of mined coal and stone.
