Train Control Management Systems 2016

Leveraging technology to optimise existing networks

Increasing demand for rail services driven by congestion and population growth and increases in operating costs and calling for rail owners and operators to optimise existing networks and assets.

New signalling and train control systems such as CBTC, ACTS, PTC and ERTMS are present the opportunity to revolutionise rail networks, improving frequency, consistency, reliabity and performance of networks.

However, the move towards digital signalling systems and automated trains presents a whole new wave of challenges to contend with, such as:

  • Identifying which technologies will offer them the most efficiency in terms of performance and cost
  • Integrating new systems into their existing assets to optimise networks
  • Investigating the impact of a customer centric view on overall operations
  • Uncovering the opportunities created by specific technologies such as CBTC, ERTMS, ATMS for cost savings, safety, security and other efficiencies  
  • Managing the transformation and mitigating the risks
