THE PLANNING OF TRAIN SERVICES USING COMPUTER METHODS

The paper describes British Rail's Train Service Production System and the computer developments which are suitable for application to it. These aim to improve the planned economics of train service operation and, in addition, to reduce production timescales and cost. The activities of train specification, timing, pathing, scheduling and documentation are discussed in the context of medium and short term planning. Current British Rail developments are described with particular emphasis being given to the role of a data base in a total computer aided train service production system.
