Support for Quick Return to Schedule after Disruptions Advanced Railway System Development Center

Support for getting back on schedule after transport impediments
We are developing a system to propose quick return to the regular schedule when train service has been disrupted. The purpose of that is to keep the impact on passengers to a minimum and restore the system to the normal train schedule. The dispatcher's office where the decision is made to cancel trains and change routes must see that trains run at reasonable intervals so as to minimize passenger inconvenience. The crew office that manages drivers and conductors must efficiently arrange and order crew. Furthermore, the railcar depot must provide cars appropriate to each line and its level of traffic. Implementing this system involves developing a system to support those functions, networking it, and proposing an optimum quick recovery of the daily train schedule.
