Abstract

This paper deals with a simulation model of technological procedures in a marshalling yard. The structure of the model and its properties are described from the point of view of a user. Attention is paid namely to its flexibility and built in capacities of cooperative solution of problems during the simulation run. 1 Introduction Marshalling yards are such nodes of a railway network, which are equipped with costly technology and in which technological procedures of high complexity are performed, demanding a high degree of coordination and control skills. It is only natural that a great effort is exerted to find an optimal configuration of infrastructure, to exploit to maximum technical and human resources and to organize effectively the technological procedures. Because of the c
