AUGUST 2008 — Madrid (SPAIN)
RENFE Mercancias implemented the algorithm developed by GOAL SYSTEMS for optimizing spaces on the train decks.
Barely a year after Renfe Mercancias awarded the project’s plan to modernize all information systems, the company proceeded to the implementation of the algorithm developed by GOAL SYSTEMS for optimizing spaces on the train decks, this process was a critical part of the platform called Omnium Integration; with a view to increase the competitiveness of Renfe Mercancias, allows it to give a quick response to new demands, new traffic and new customers, in a liberalized sector.
In this project, GOAL SYSTEMS has not been limited to the implementation of the optimization modules of common resources (rolling stock and crews), but it has been necessary to develop a new GoalRail® module to optimize containers transported on platforms (wagons) with an algorithm for gaps assignment.
The new algorithm has been developed to provide the following benefits to Renfe Mercancias:
— Maximize spaces on the Train Decks.
— A greater economic benefit by having available spaces.
— Improve the planning of freight and organizing the stockage.
— Separate the loading process from the human factor.
— Maneuvers Reduction.
