Smooth and safe railway operations – that is the responsible task for the staff in interlockings and operations control centres. They are assisted by complex control and safety systems, but do they know how to react correctly if operations are disrupted due to technical malfunction or sudden deviations from schedule?
Due to the high train density in railway networks, the right decisions must be made very quickly and confidently. Therefore, train controllers and dispatchers need to undergo intensive training to prepare them for all conceivable scenarios. The BEST operations and interlocking simulation provides a cost-effective solution for this purpose – practice-oriented, manufacturer-neutral, and suitable for all interlocking types.
The modular architecture of the BEST interlocking simulation system reproduces all functions of the interlocking as well as track-side installations (signals, points etc.) and of course any user-defined train and shunting movements. The wide repertoire of simulated technical and operational disruptions, accidents and hazards allows optimal training of interlocking personnel, e.g. train controllers, for their daily work, and prepares them to master every situation with confidence.
The simulator covers the following training phases:
