Abstract

To enhance the flexibility in the planning process and to support the operational demands of a railway, the software system RailSys has been enhanced with a search engine to provide possible train slots in an existing timetable. The slot search engine operates on the detailed RailSys database to provide feasible solutions. The search engine takes into account a correct running time calculation on the basis of actual train characteristics (length and weight), infrastructure parameters (e.g. gradient, speed profiles), the headways of other trains and operational demands (length of the platforms, correspondence, stopping patterns). The second part of the paper deals with the Client-Server architecture of Rai
