Abstract

According to the increasing of the density and of the complexity of the traffic, computer systems for decision making is more and more requested for railway operation. This paper deals with decision help technics that aid a traffic operator to correct rapidly and efficiently a timetable in a short term stage or during the railway supervision. The adopted approach aims to provide the dispatcher with a maximum of interactivity. For this purpose, we propose a panel of three complementary tools, each of these tools being at a different level of automation. This paper presents these tools and their results on different type of network configurations. 1 Introduction Today, railway transport systems have to face new operational chal- lenges. They must provide r
