Details:

The LUKS software tool is an integrated system for several types of railway operations research. Based on a common data basis, compilatory, analytical and simulative methods can be adopted for analyses of lines and junctions.

LUKS was initially developed in response to the plethora of programs available hitherto and the drawbacks this entails for the inputting and use of infrastructure and timetable data from the operative systems run by DB Netz AG. Right now, LUKS incorporates the current state of the art in railway operations Research. During the last years, LUKS became the standard tool for capacity assessment of German DB Netz AG, the standard tools for simulation at INFRABEL as well as the default system to answer capacitive questions at EBA (German railway authority). LUKS is modular in design and comprises several core components plus modules with which to compile timetables, subject lines and junctions to analytical examinations and simulate the timetabling and operational processes.
