N2 - With the liberalization of the European railway sector, the number of national <br/>railway timetable stakeholders has increased drastically. A need arises for <br/>reaching a common consensus about the timetabling criteria and their priority <br/>which the timetabling process should be based on. <br/>To create a common Danish list of railway timetable evaluation and <br/>optimization criteria a two step process was launched. Individual interviews were <br/>conducted with selected Danish stakeholders: DSB, Arriva, DB Schenker Rail, <br/>The Danish Transport Authority and Rail Net Denmark. Each stakeholder made <br/>a list of five prioritized timetabling criteria. These lists were input for the second <br/>working step: A timetabling criteria workshop at the Technical University of <br/>Denmark, where a first agreement on timetabling criteria between stakeholders <br/>was achieved. The result was a three layered list of prioritized criteria. Rank 1 <br/>criteria: capacity consumption on line sections and systematic timetable. Rank 2 <br/>criteria: robustness of the timetable and societal acceptance of the timetable and <br/>rank 3 criteria: travel time of trains and attractive transfer options. <br/>With this new tool a revised timetabling process at Rail Net Denmark is <br/>proposed. The very basic structure of the process cannot be changed due to EU <br/>legislation and Rail Net Europe guidelines. Key performance indicators derived <br/>from the identified timetabling criteria are introduced. As is a more iterative <br/>approach to the timetabling process due to the assumption of major <br/>improvements within timetable planning systems. This new iterative timetabling <br/>process using key performance indicators will result in improved future <br/>timetables and in lower levels of disagreement between timetable stakeholders.
