Factory railways form the logistical link between the mass-capacity rail transport and the incoming and outgoing goods of a company. The planning areas of the plant railway are also affected by the future security of this operation – while other departments have been using optimal scheduling, automated resource deployment planning and integrated planning processes for years, plant railways often still have to carry out their shift planning in a spreadsheet program. But that works better!
In the current issue of BahnManager Magazine, our railway specialist Matthias Platzer takes a detailed look at the potential of digitizing plant railway processes and how this can be implemented in practice. Among other things, his article takes up the focal points:
- Integrative shipping processes with ERP
- Resource Scheduling
- Traction unit planning
- Integrated disposition and dispatch system
- Wagon circulation and requirements
- Making industrial railways future-proof
