DAPHNE brings better diagram analysis and validation efficiencies that drive better franchise performance

DAPHNE puts an end to manual diagram validation and optimises the productivity of existing diagrams via data analysis and comparison.

DAPHNE currently validates over 5,000 diagrams a year for train operators who are looking to make faster and simpler diagram changes and variances, saving many hours of manual checking.

With DAPHNE, train operators are assured that new plans are compliant, optimised and efficient while existing plans are analysed on their effectiveness in resource utilisation.

DAPHNE can analyse some or all the TOC’s current, past or proposed diagrams to see where things might be done more productively.

DAPHNE allows planning management to:

The results can be exported for further analysis; if required.

DAPHNE allows the train planner to check the validity of diagrams before publication.

A diagram will be flagged up as suspect if the appropriate compendium rules about walking-times, taxi times, travelling as passenger, PNBs etc. have not been observed. The planner may choose to override the flag based on specific knowledge of the situation.

ITAL’s stand-alone software makes validating timetables fast and efficient so real-time changes in the event of disruption, or future contingencies for planned events such as engineering works, can be more simply achieved.
