Operational simulation: fi_x001D_rst simulation, then implementation

March 2015 | Marc-Andre Klemenz, Günter Koch

It is in the interests of both the operating company and the orderer to transport more passengers and freight by rail. The fundamental aim is e_x001E_cient transportation, which is supported by the key factors of increasing revenue by increasing capacity and reducing expenses by designing facilities that meet demands. These two factors can be evaluated, combined and optimized by means of operational simulations.
