Abstract

A model to analyze railway delay to support \“performance regime” evaluation P. L. Guida1, A. Libardo2 & G. Salerno3 1Rete ferroviaria italiana, Italy 2Universitá IUAV di Venezia, Italy 3Universitá degli studi di Firenze, Italy Abstract This research tries to improve an existing model of the authors concerning \“performance regime”: it showed an innovative methodology to check rail operations and to attribute delay responsibilities to every event and every train. This paper also considers other features of the infrastructure management dimension as: (a) railway company and external; (b) delay causes. A programming language has been used to set and define an algorithm that has been used in a key role in the \“Perseo” project of the Italian railway manager (Rfi). Keywords: performance regime, railway operation, delay responsibilities.
