Central threat register – a complex system for risk analysis and decision support in railway transport

Risk management is an important element in the operations of each organisation. In order to provide active support of risk analysis and decision making processes, a system was developed, called Central Threat Register. The goal of the system is to collect information about events and threats in the area of railway transport and to support the system users in risk analysis and decision making. The presented system complies with European and Polish requirements for railway transport. It consists of the following basic modules: knowledge base module, data exchange and anonymisation module, threat and risk assessment module, and decision support module. In addition, this study features two cases of the system's application: an analysis pertaining to preventing railway traction breaks due to icing and analysis regarding the prevention of train collisions.
