efficient vehicle schedules

Creating efficient daily vehicle schedules and optimising vehicle requirements: IVU.run supports the entire run scheduling process, from one-day schedules to multiweek scheduling cycles including maintenance and service times. Numerous automated functions and reliable, highly configurable rule systems support more efficient workflows.

IVU.run adopts timetables seamlessly from IVU.timetable or from third-party systems via standard interfaces. The system includes all relevant information for linking journeys to vehicle schedules: vehicle type, service intervals, turnaround times, train strengthening. IVU.run calculates the position and orientation of vehicles within the vehicle formation automatically, just as it does with changes in direction. For maximum efficiency, IVU.run suggests suitable subsequent trips for every journey as requested.There are internal control mechanisms in place to ensure that the final vehicle schedule meets all operational requirements and regulations.

IVU.run’s powerful optimisation core performs complex tasks. It creates and optimises multi-day vehicle schedules, which in turn support efficient vehicle parking. The integrated track occupancy planning function automatically assigns the relevant tracks if required, something made possible by detailed rule system. Optimisation also allows extensive variant planning to calculate various different scenarios and their costs. This is helpful in many planning scenarios, for example when railway companies apply for new concessions.
