The new roster- plan has, of course, to reassign every train service. But most difficult is, that all operational and technical conditions have to be considered in the new schedule, especially the running kilometers of a single vehicle before a compulsary maintenance stop in a depot, and of course the capacity of the depot, At the IVE the management system DI
