Shift2Rail funded IP5 project OptiYard

We have the pleasure to invite you to the mid-term conference of the Shift2Rail JU funded IP5 project OptiYard  to be held at UIC in Paris on 5 October 2018

Join us! It will be a fantastic opportunity to look at future scenarios for railways in line with Shift2Rail goals and, of course, to boost networking.

Registration is mandatory and free of charge but only a limited number of participants can be welcomed on a first-come-first-served basis.

Shift2Rail funded project OptiYard objectives

OptiYard will provide decision support tools to Yard Managers that consider the surrounding network, in a view to ensure smooth marshalling that is essential for the global efficiency of the transport chain.

OptiYard uses a three-pronged approach to develop an optimised decision support system for yard dispatchers by:

  1. Providing enhanced, automated yard management by analysing existing process and operations and developing appropriate optimisation algorithms to improve operations for both single wagon load and block train traffic;
  2. Improving information and communications processes between the Yard Management System, the RUs and Network (IM) by analysing data feeds and modelling an enhanced communications environment;
  3. Enhancing real-time interaction with the surrounding network, giving the yard dispatcher better visibility of pending perturbations and major disruptions to the yard production schedule.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

If you can hold something up and put it down, it is called weight-lifting; if you can hold something up but can never put it down, it’s called burden-bearing. Pitifully, most of people are bearing heavy burdens when they are in love.
