Article about the use of RailSys at the SNCF Transilien

Evaluation of the robustness of transportation plans with RailSys

The rail network of Ile-de-France is one of the busiest in the world. Half the traffic of the French SNCF Transilien runs on these 10 % of the French rail network. In order to be able to offer a high-quality transport service despite the high capacity utilisation, SNCF relies on RailSys

With extensive developments of various components, RailSys is operating at SNCF Transilien under the name DENFERT to enable a detailed modelling of the versatile aspects of rail traffic in France. The successful implementation of RailSys at SNCF Transilien is especially based on the high accuracy that for example the French signalling systems BAL and BAPR as well as the European ERTMS can be modelled in RailSys with.

In a large number of studies, SNCF Transilien has already implemented RailSys to examine traffic scenarios and timetable studies of current projects and evaluate their expected operational quality. With RailSys it is possible to verify the robustness of traffic services and develop propositions for infrastructural improvements (e.g. in signalling equipment).

Together, SNCF Transilien and RMCon strive for additional functional enhancements in RailSys to further increase the fields of application and the modelling quality.
RMCon offers a wide range of services with the RailSys Software Suite to all customers who also benefit from the experience of working directly with SNCF Transilien (consulting and software development).

The main aspects of working with RailSys were recently described in the Revue Générale des Chemins de Fer (June 2019).
