Abstract

This paper proposes a computer-based solution to train platforming problem. Firstly, train platforming problem is introduced as for maximisation of station traffic capacity. Then, the paper describes the software tool especially designed by the authors in order to perform optimised train platforming automatically. Finally, an application of above mentioned software tool to case studies is presented. 1 Introduction The carrying capacity of a station is defined as the maximum number of trains that can be platformed in a unit time, without irregularity in train running, i.e. on the hypothesis that no train has to stop because of a red signal, waiting for an available station track. The unit time usually assumed
