MAY 2008 — Madrid (SPAIN)
GOAL SYSTEMS was appointed by RENFE OPERADORA as the successful bidder of the project for the Design, Development, Implantation and Integral Maintenance of a computer tool for Optimisation of Productive Resources of the General Department of High Speed/Longer distance Services.
GOAL SYSTEMS was selected in a decision-taking procedure at an international level, in which some of our competitors took part. RENFE requested conceptual evidence using real data, where we were able to demonstrate the levels of optimisation achieved in previous projects in the high-speed sector, tied to our existing solutions for the planning of human resources, and the optimum relationship between the level of optimisation-quality-price, which assures a swift ROI for RENFE AVE-LD.
The project aims to use computer tools for optimum planning of resources to support the New Management Model of RENFE Operadora which will oversee the company towards its adaptation to an environment of competition, to enable it to act in an open market in which the clients are the end users, and the supply is defined basically in accordance with market and competition criteria.
The main aim of the project is to provide support to the management of different products and try to provide greater coherence to the overall supply, through optimisation of the productive resources, the company’s main asset, as well as enabling the simulation of scenarios that make it possible to create other more beneficial conditions for the business than current ones.
The magnitudes of the problem are around 230 tractors at the head of the trains (engines and self-propelled stock), 1.000 engine drivers and 700 inspectors, distributed over 15 workshops, 5 production sites and 50 personnel centres.
With this contract award and together with the one awarded previously for the French TGV (SNCF), GOAL SYSTEMS has become a worldwide benchmark in optimisation systems for the high-speed railway sector.
