Use case / Anwendungsfall

Import complete timetable for vehicle working scheduling and vehicle workings; Umlaufbildung Fahrzeuge Jahresfahrplan

Description / Beschreibung

A complete timetable shall be imported, serving as base for vehicle working scheduling.

The following usecases are covered:

  • import infrastructure for vehicle working scheduling (optional)
  • import rolling stock data (optional)
  • import timetable for a calendar period
  • import timetable for an abstract regular week (template)
  • import partial vehicle working data

Data Flows and Interfaces / Datenflüsse und Schnittstellen

Typically, the import is done manually using a file based interface.

Interference with other railML® schemas / Interferenz mit anderen railML®-Schemen

  • Common
  • Infrastructure: the import uses elements from mesoscopic and macroscopic perspective
  • Rolling stock

Characterizing Data / Charakterisierung der Daten

How often do the data change (update)?

  • static


  • whole data set, or region

Which views are represented by the data (focus)?

  • mid term

Which specific data do you expect to receive/send (elements)?

Timetable data

  • base data of commercial and operational trains (validity, train numbers, train category, train line, operators, concessionairs, subcontractors etc)
  • commercial train data
    • itineraries with optional platform assignments
    • commercial formation requirements (may vary per itinerary section), commercial coupling and branching
    • planned connection requirements with
      • validity, source and target, minimum and maximum connection time, connection guaranteed flag, same platform required flag, connection direction (incoming, outgoing, both)
  • operational train data
    • references to commercial trains
    • itineraries with optional platform assignments
    • formations (may vary per itinerary section), including coupling and branching of trains

Infrastructure data

Stops, stations, tracks, track sections. They should

  • refer to a validity, possibly to be extended to daytime validity
  • carry infrastructure restrictions
  • allow computation of itineraries, including changes of direction

Rolling stock data

Vehicle information should include

  • validity reference
  • length
  • weight
  • speed
  • traction
  • seating capacity (per class)
  • standing capacity
  • additional services (buffet, wlan, etc.)

vehicle working and rostering data

Vehicle workings may be imported if there is a pre-planning that is to be completed.

  • Concatenation of operating trains to vehicle workings that are served by the same (abstract) vehicle
  • Shunting trips within OCPs (referencing microscopic infrastructure)
  • Non-revenue trains implementing operational needs
  • Maintenance blocks for abstract vehicles

Rosterings may be imported if there is a pre-planning that is to be completed.

The following data could be imported:

  • Assignment of a rostering plan to a depot
  • Concatenation of vehicle workings to multi-day sequences of trains served by the same (abstract) vehicle
  • depot runs
  • vehicle standbys
  • vehicle accounting for maintanance intervals

Open issues

  • Identification of operational and commercial trains (if not present in railML data)
  • Relationship between operational and commercial trains (itineraries, formations, ...)
