Project "Development for mapping the cause-effect relationship for LuFV III: Use of funds / infra-structure quality" completed

Within the framework of this project, a bidirectional correlation between financial resources and infrastructure quality was established on behalf of DB Station&Service AG. The quality is defined by the quality indicators "Assessment of Facility Quality" (BAQ) and "Functionality of Platforms and Extensive Accessibility" (FB-B). For the development of the correlation, data-based degradation functions were created and the effect of maintenance and renewal measures on the two quality indicators was modelled. The functions and effects were implemented in a software tool to fore-cast the infrastructure quality and the required budget.

Kick-Off "Further development of the regulations for the design of operational infrastructure"
 

Market-oriented and resilient design is an essential objective of infrastructure dimensioning. In order to have suitable standards, the Institute of Transport Sciences was commissioned by DB Netz AG to further develop the rules and regulations for the design of operational infrastructure. Within the framework of this project, the development of adapted standards and the further development of the consideration of forecast train numbers within infrastructure dimensioning on the basis of peak periods is being investigated. In addition, more issues such as junction design will be addressed.

Project "Analysis of academic education in the rail transport sector" completed
 
 

As part of a survey of university professors in the railway sector, a project consortium led by quattron management consulting GmbH created a data basis to identify deficits and needs for action in the current university education and research landscape in the German rail transport sector. The results led to a concept for strengthening the railway sector at universities and universities of applied sciences. Further information on the project can be found here.
