Train Control Management Systems 2015

Technologies to plan, upgrade and optimise the network and create capacity

Although federal budgets allocated for rail have been reduced, Australian rail owners and operators are operating train control and safety systems at their maximum capacity. Capital costs for TCMS replacements have turned into a serious concern.

When implementing train management systems, organisations aim to improve train spacing, manage unsafe speeds and the safety of workers by developing strategies that take the human, operational and technical aspects into account.

With this in mind, the TCMS 2015 conference has been developed in collaboration with key industry leaders to discuss best practice for increasing security and making successful investments that seek to improve results.

Join your peers and find out how you can:

  • Ensure safety and efficiency when expending rail systems
  • Utilise emerging technology to obtain maximum value from existing infrastructure and resources
  • Effectively align financial and operational performance

5 Key Reasons Why You Should Attend 2015 TCMS:

As the infrastructure bottleneck increases across Australia, it is crucial for companies to look for strategies to increase train safety and efficiency.

  • Hear international perspectives on trends for railways and how to ensure safety and efficiency when expanding rail systems
  • Learn how to apply train control systems and increase safety
  • Discover best practice on optimising the network to create capacity
  • Benefit from a cross-over industry discussion: How lessons from other industries could be adopted in railway
  • Obtain key insights on decision making processes – responding to incidents

Session topics for TCMS 2015 include:

  • Optimising the Network to Create Capacity
