EUSKOTREN, THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT OPERATOR IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY, HAS RECENTLY AWARDED GMV THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR THE CENTRALIZED OPERATION OF THE BILBAO AND VITORIA TRAMS, AS WELL AS THE RAILWAY OPERATED BY THIS ENTITY.
The system to be developed is integrated with multiple external systems covering the various stages of rail traffic management. On the other hand, the system itself allows it to act on its own in these stages if necessary, providing greater robustness to the set of Euskotren systems. The first stage (or timetable planning) covers the import or preparation and exchange of the operating plans that will be used in the future, plans that contain all the planned traffic, both of the train network and of the Bilbao and Vitoria tram networks for one or more standard days that will be applied on a calendar that will determine the plan to load.
The next stage, the real-time stage, allows, for the current day, daily monitoring of the traffic of the different networks, whether it is the train or tram networks. The tool makes it possible to react to deviations that occur, allowing, for example, to modify the loaded plan in various ways, load a different plan, manually reassign affected materials or personnel, etc. As a result of all this, modifications are made throughout the day keeping other external systems updated.
