Consulting case studies Railway
Specialized consulting service for train planning and simulation.
At TDX, we provide digital transformation initiatives that combine the latest digital technologies with the accumulated Railway domain knowledge of the Toshiba Group. Our business aim is to contribute to the improvement of the management of railway companies.
For our 1st step, we are focusing on train planning which is the upstream process in railway operations, the timetable being the symbolic output of train planning process.
We will support railway companies based on our flexible simulation and data analytic capabilities within train planning.
In the United Kingdom, British Rail was privatized in 1993. Now the railway is operating with a scheme of separating infrastructure and train operations. This means infrastructure like signalling and tracks is managed by one government owned company and more than 20 private railway companies which were selected as per a franchise bidding process provide train services on the railway infrastructure.
In addition to the Franchise scheme, freight train operators and other type of train service operators like open access operators provide train services in limited sections but are also running train services on same tracks as the franchised operators. This is increasing the complexity of the UK railway network.
In recent years, the number of train cancellations and major delay incidents is increasing, whilst the nationwide clients expectations for punctual railway is very high. Furthermore each train operating companies is liable for penalties to the government depending on their operating performance, this is directly affects company management.
Based on Toshiba's original Railway Digital Technologies, we started a market survey and conducted a feasibility study in the UK and finally agreed to provide a consulting service from 2019.
In order to fully understand the clients challenges and to be able to propose an effective solution to these challenges, we have both Digital Technology engineers and railway consultant members who formerly worked for train operating companies or Network Rail. This is one of the strong points of our consulting services.
Recently the concept of "Mobility as a Service" is gradually materialized and modality of transportation is transforming. Our Digital Technology has potential in making contribution to other transportation methods like Buses, Logistics, Airlines and Shipping.
Our initial business focus is with train operating companies in the UK but we are aiming to go beyond and contribute to the more broader world within different mobility industries.
Data is the lifeblood of our Digital Transformation business. Finding and collecting accurate data is one of the key factors to the success of the project. I am always in close communication with the clients to propose sensible solutions.
