THE GOP-1 METHOD AND ITS USE IN THE TIME-TABLE PREPARATION

The gop-1 (graphic optimization) method is proposed for timetable calculation. If the probabilistic properties of the random running times between the pairs of neighbouring stations are known, the timetable of the given train (or bus, ship, aeroplane, etc) can be determined. The gop-1 method utilizes a very simple mathematical model. Results of gop-1 calculations are compared with ones obtained using the method of uniform distribution of the time reserve. /TRRL/
