Integrated Rolling Stock Planning for Suburban Passenger Trains

Per Thorlacius

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


    A central issue for operators of passenger trains is providing sufficient number of seats while minimising operating costs. This process must be conducted taking a large number of practical, railway oriented requirements into account. Because of this complexity, a stepwise solution was previously used, the result being the loss of optimality. The talk will present a new, integrated rolling stock planning model in which the many requirements are handled all at the same time. Preliminary results from DSB S-tog, the suburban train operator of the City of Copenhagen will also be presented.
