Use case / Anwendungsfall

Traffic Management Plan

Description / Beschreibung

Description / Beschreibung / Description The UseCase TrafficManagementPlan (TMP) defines exchange of information between Timetable Construction System (TCS) and Traffic Management System (TMS).

Data Flows and Interfaces / DatenflĂĽsse und Schnittstellen

These data are relevant for both systems. Plans are transmitted from TCS to TMS. In situations where TCS is the single owner of the plan data, changes to the operational plan are transmitted back from the TMS to TCS. This enables the TCS to also work on VSTP level.

Characterizing Data / Charakterisierung der Daten

How often do the data change (update)?

  • yearly for LTP, VLTP
  • regular changes for STP
  • daily for VSTP

How big are the data fragments to be exchanged (complexity)?

  • LTP, VLTP: big
  • STP, VSTP updates: little

Which views are represented by the data (focus)?

  • VLTP: Very long term planning
  • LTP: Long term planning (e.g. for yearly timetable distribution)
  • STP: Short term planning (e.g. for track works)
  • Passenger information

Which specific data do you expect to receive/send (elements)?

  • <train>
    • <trainPartSequence>
    • <trainPartRef>
  • <trainPart>
    • <formationTT>
    • <operatingPeriodRef>

  • LTP = Long Term Planning: the yearly timetable(s)
  • STP = Short Term Planning: changes to the current production timetable up to the point that changes can be published to downstream *systems (passenger information, train control, train operators, …)
  • VLTP = Very Long Term Planning: >2 years
  • VSTP = Very Short Term Planning: < 24 hours
  • TCS = Timetable Construction System; a system which develops planned timetables based on infrastructure and rolling stock data, used by RU and IM, usually before a train run; e.g. TPS from HaCon (external link), Viriato from SMA (external link), FBS from iRFP (external link), ...)
  • TMS = Traffic Management System; a system which supports dispatching of trains on a network, mostly by IM, usually during a train run
