RailSys enables a technical as well as an operational planning for railway transport. It directly corresponds to the actual planning and process steps ensuring that each action in the system follows your processes and is transparent. The new and improved design of the graphical user interface that we introduced in RailSys 10 and continue in RailSys 11 accentuates this and supports the workflow.

RailSys Workflow

With RailSys you can control and optimise the whole planning process of the railway traffic, from the first path concepts for a new line to the Ad-hoc-timetable. Get on board wherever you like and ride with us until your project is completed. In all of the planning steps you retain control in the transparent planning process due to important parameters and you generate individual solutions for the rail-bound traffic of the future.
