Design of a Railway Pallet Pool Information System on Grid

This paper focuses on Railway Pallet Pool System which could reduce the transportation cost of empty pallets. First of all, the concept, operation model and operation process of a railway pallet pool system will be briefly discussed. Then, the architecture and the security framework of a railway pallet pool information system based on grid technology will be proposed because the effective implementation of a railway pallet pool system needs an information system to support. The architecture includes seven tiers from the bottom to the top which is resource tier, middle tier, resource agent tier, application tier, decision tier, interface tier and security framework. The security framework includes five tiers from the bottom to top, which are node tier, adaptation tier, base tier, service tier and interface tier. Both of the architecture and security framework of the railway pallet pool information system are in accord with Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA).
