RailBIS is an invaluable companion for service design personnel departments at railroads. It can assist them in comparing plans with actual execution and identify opportunity for improvements in both.
RailBISSM is advanced business intelligence software that allows planners to analyze vast amounts of data and derive useful information and insights to create better plans and improve operations. RailBIS analyzes the actual train and railcar movement data and displays it through highly graphical interfaces including maps, charts, histograms, and tables.
The RailBIS system also performs a detailed comparison of the plan data (how things should have happened) with the historical data (how things actually happened) and highlights the variability between the two. The software can be used to determine deficiencies in the plan, identify areas of improvement in the execution of plans, and perform root cause analysis through drill-down capabilities.
