OptiYard final conference - 25 September 2019 - UIC, Paris 26/09/19

<Retour à la liste

The Shift2Rail Funded IP5 project OptiYard, led by the International union of railways (UIC), in collaboration with 13 partners from 7 European countries, develops an innovative framework to optimise, in real-time, the operations in freight rail yards. This 24-month project will end in September 2019.

We would therefore like to invite you to the final event of OptiYard to be held at UIC in Paris on Wednesday 25 September 2019.

Join us! It will be a fantastic opportunity to look at future scenarios for railways in line with Shift2Rail goals and, of course, to boost networking.

Registration is mandatory and free of charge but only a limited number of participants can be welcomed on a first-come-first-served basis.

Project overview

OptiYard provides decision support tools to Yard Managers that consider the surrounding network, in a view to ensure smooth marshalling that is essential for the global efficiency of the transport chain.

OptiYard uses a three-pronged approach to develop an optimised decision support system for yard dispatchers by:

  • Providing enhanced, automated yard management by analysing existing processes and operations and developing appropriate optimisation algorithms to improve operations for both single wagon load and block train traffic;
  • Improving information and communications processes between the Yard Management System, the RUs and the Network (IM) by analysing data feeds and modelling an enhanced communications environment;
  • Enhancing real-time interaction with the surrounding network, giving the yard dispatcher better visibility of pending perturbations and major disruptions to the yard production schedule.
