AT THE CROSSROAD BETWEEN RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND CONSULTING
TRENOlab is an independent consulting and software development company.
With our studies and tools we aim at improving railway operations, leading to more reliable services and better utilization of the networks: they mean higher satisfaction for travelers and lower costs for the operators, while avoid unnecessary investments for the public entities.
Our portfolio of products and services consists of railway system planning, process consulting and operations optimisation as well as the software suite TRENO.
Our team is made up of professionals with a PhD MSc in Logistics or computer engineering. We constantly improve our skills and tools through a continuous research and development activity, which also leads to scientific publications in the most respected journals and conferences.
OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE IN RAIL OPERATIONS
Rail operations are the result of a complex interaction of infrastructure and signaling, rolling stock and timetable. This interaction is further complicated by a number of human factors and other unpredictable phenomena and stochastic disturbances.
In order to ensure the maximum accuracy in considering all these elements, we use the so-called "Planning Loop" approach, perfectly implemented in our tools.
From long-term infrastructure planning to short-term timetable tweaks, we support railway operators in maximizing the quality of operations.
Our wide range of consultancies involving railway operations includes the joint infrastructure and service planning, in which the most suitable timetable to reach the expected goal is created, and then the minimum infrastructure to operate it is designed accordingly, avoiding unnecessary expenses.
We support operating companies, public authorities and infrastructure managers in planning efficient and robust timetables, both for short-term tweaks and longer-term design, also within franchise and concession bids.
We start analysing the existing operations, using our TRENOAnalysis tool to identify the critical points, develop the drafts and perform the ex-ante robustness estimation. It allows testing the quality of a timetable before operating it, ensuring that is allows obtaining the punctuality targets under the expected conditions.
SMART CUSTOMIZABLE SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS TO MAKE RAILWAY PLANNING MORE EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT.
Planning and operating complex railway networks requires great accuracy. And is very time consuming.
Our software tools support planners and railway companies in making railway planning more accurate and efficient at different levels: from long-term definition of infrastructure requirements to short-term timetable planning to the ex-post analysis of railway traffic.
TRENOPlus is a powerful timetable planning tool developed to simplify the planning process maximizing productivity. Developed from scratch with the aim of taking maximum advantage from the latest advances in the network models and algorithms, TRENOPlus appears as the most recent and innovative timetable planning tool.
TRENOAnalysis explores real and simulated railway traffic data, automatically pointing out critical points and estimating reliability indicators, representing them using a wide range of diagrams and statistics at different aggregation levels.
With TRENOExport, simulating large networks with OpenTrackTM is simple and the probability of errors is minimized. TRENOExport dramatically simplifies preparation of micro-simulation models. Once the infrastructure model is created with TRENOExport, you can automatically define all datasets and parameters to be used in the simulation with OpenTrackTM.
