Locomotive Operating Plan Optimization
Since train schedules and fleet sizes change frequently, railroads require a tool that regularly optimizes their locomotive operating plans. We developed a locomotive optimization software solution that created and maintained such a plan.
- This system generated implementable locomotive plans that could reduce locomotive operating costs by three to five percent.
- CSX has used the LocoMAX® system to perform a variety of capital investment studies, such as determining the locomotive fleet size needed for increasing volumes and the best mix of different locomotive types.
