Agile Simulation: An approach for increasing optimisation in railway planning
This paper defines agile simulation as embedding simulation experts into railway planning processes. It identifies five key advantages of agile simulation and recommends that railways use agile simulation to increase the effective use of simulation in all types of planning projects. The paper is based on the hypothesis that increasing the use of simulation would improve railway efficiency and service quality. The paper is based on experience operating London’s Elizabeth line service since 2015.
