Multi criteria decision making model to increase railway timetable robustness
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Transport and Traffic Engineering
Keywords: timetable; train delays; robustness; railway line capacity; multicriteria decision making
Railway system is one of the most expensive systems of each country, from aspect of construction and of maintenance, as well. On the other hand, it is a necessity, especially in cities and densely populated areas. Accuracy of the railway system is directly related to the stability and robustness of all technological processes in it, including timetable, as one of the most important among them. The aims of this paper is to define the mode of implementation of time reserves in the timetable in order to increase its robustness, as well as the dimensioning the size of those reserves, given the constraints arising from the utilization of railway line capacity. The developed model take into account the various limitations resulting from the technology of railway traffic itself. The model is of algorithmic type step-by-step, and on the basis of that, the place of application of time reserves at observed section of the railway line can be reached, in order to increase the robustness of the timetable.
