If you want to enable safe and reliable rail transportation while making the best use of available infrastructure, implementing efficient rail control and signaling solutions is an essential piece of the puzzle.
The development of these software-based systems is critical in rail transport projects. Delays in delivery, acceptance and safety approvals add up to a highly negative impact on costs and schedules.
There is an obvious need to simplify the rail control solution development process and implement solutions that supply the industry with the tools and processes needed to meet the requirements and expectations of end customers.
How do you do that?
At Prover, we’ve found the formula for a successful rail control project to be threefold: focus on the requirement specifications, use automation to develop the systems, and apply formal and automated methods to prove that requirements and safety are fulfilled.
Not only does this formula generate high-quality software and guaranteed safety, but it can cut both your project time and costs by 50%. Together with more standardization, this paves the way for increased competition and reduced life cycle costs. And, ultimately, a better customer experience with increased traffic capacity and fewer delays.
In this guide, we will walk you through how to use this formula, which is called Signaling Design Automation, to overcome the most common barriers in rail control projects and work smarter to get on the proven track to success.
