TRANSPORT FORECASTS AS THE BASIS OF DECISION-MAKING IN FORWARD PLANNING ON THE DB

VERKEHRSPROGNOSEN ALS GRUNDLAGE VON PLANUNGSENTSCHEIDUNGEN DER DEUTSCHEN BUNDESBAHN

Forecasts are the essential basis of forward planning and decision-making. This is true for the transport sector, especially for the railway, since the railways work mainly with materials which cannot be changed from one year to another, and they must therefore know future developments in transport demand as accurately as possible. An explanation is given on the preparation, structure, methods and classification of transport forecasts, the possibilities and limits of forecasters, and the compilation and application of transport forecasts in respect of the German Federal Railway.
