A SPREADSHEET BASED FLEET STRATEGY PLANNING MODEL FOR PASSENGER RAIL ROLLING STOCK

Rail passenger authorities and agencies typically operate diversified fleets of various types of rolling stock. A spreadsheet based modeling tool is being used which allows operators of diverse rolling stock fleets to consider a number of key cost factors when making "overhaul or replace" decisions, looking forward over 20 or more years. This model is potentially of use to operators who are trying to reconcile the available alternatives, as they manage non-homogeneous fleets of vehicles of varying ages in a budget-constrained environment. This paper explains the specifics of the model's input and explains how iterative scenarios make the model a useful decision support tool.
