Operations analysis and simulation help agencies address their system’s distinct needs and intricate challenges. It is a complement to all sectors of work—planning, design and engineering, systems, track, electrical, and construction.
To help clients with transportation investments and alternatives analysis, capital project planning, line capacity studies, signal system analysis, rail system power consumption studies and analysis, and operations simulation during and after construction, SYSTRA uses software tools that include our proprietary RAILSIM X® Software Suite and Rail Traffic Controller (RTC).
SYSTRA’s RAILSIM X® Software Suite is the rail and rapid transit industry’s leading analytical tool for modeling and simulating rail systems’ operations and performance. It is designed to simulate all facets of rail systems as well as the interactions of trains with infrastructure, control systems, and the operation of complex systems and networks. RAILSIM X® can accurately simulate any rail system–light rail, heavy rail, and high speed rail.
SYSTRA regularly customizes and enhances the RAILSIM X® software suite to users’ needs and experiences to improve rail and rapid transit operations. For more than 20 years, RAILSIM® has supported rail and rapid transit operating and engineering teams with the information and data required to effectively manage their rail systems. In continuing this legacy, new features supporting Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) and Terminal Manager will be introduced into the software. SYSTRA continues to lead the next generation of rail and rapid transit operational analysis and simulation software with RAILSIM X®. The RAILSIM X® Software Suite brings clients the benefit of SYSTRA’s extensive staff experience in signal engineering, rail operations, and electrical engineering.
