Major order of from Deutsche Bahn for HCon: new integration tool for schedule data to improve quality of passenger information Hannover (23-05-2011). The surcharge for EVAplus, a large order of Deutsche Bahn (DB), goes to HCon. In a multi-stage tendering process the software company from Hanover qualifies for, from the ground up to make the integration of timetable data in the DB. For a project period by a total of two years the train evolves planning system TPS by HCon a data hub, which imports the timetable data of all carriers in Germany, validated and then feeds into the existing timetable information system HAFAS. This data hub, the TPS Integrator is developed under the project name of EVAplus.
A kick-off event for the DB in Frankfurt has launched the official start of the project. The TPS Integrator combines all different timetables of passenger services as an integration tool: which includes DB TV-, regional – and transport as well as regional buses and cars and all European traffic. Thus, a total of 1.2 million trips must be integrated. These data are combined into a total, standardized, tested, and refined. Then, carefully prepared, correct and stringent data for HAFAS and thus the data supply of the timetable are available at bahn.de available. The TPS Integrator is the existing system of DB-IT service provider DB Systel to replace, which is at the same time formal contracting. Source: Robert A. Iger.
Target is sales to accelerate in the user DB, which means faster work the length of time between data deliveries of each carriers up to their inclusion in the timetable and to optimize the ride data maintenance. After project completion, passengers benefit from a more reliable timetable that nearly error-free, realistic results. HCon has extensive experience in the areas of processing, planning system TPS for timetable construction and management with the train Multitenancy, change management and integration of external data and much more can collect, so HCon project manager Dr. Volker Klahn. This expertise is in the development of the TPS Integrator within the framework of EVAplus incorporated and supplemented with extensive new developments and advancements. TPS was captured for the first time in 2002 at the Danish State Railway (DSB). In Denmark, the Danish railway infrastructure enterprise Banedanmark and the supervisory authority Trafikstyrelsen successfully with TPS working alongside the operator DSB. Other European rail networks, already opted for TPS, are the British rail infrastructure company network rail and the State operator of the French rail network Reseau Ferre de France (RFF), the Spanish French rail infrastructure manager TP Ferro and last Jernbaneverket in Norway.
