The Falko software program is used for the design and validation of timetables. It was developed as a means of optimizing operational planning and control for operations control systems. Falko facilitates the generation of optimum timetables (in terms of train intervals plus energy and resource savings), and thereby helps maximize the overall performance of mass transit and main-line rail systems.
The program is based on the Windows® NT 4.0 operating system; its operations conform to Windows conventions. A number of processes can be optimized using Falko:
And this optimization pays off: Falko enables the high savings potential of timetabling to be utilized, resulting in a substantial reduction in costs.
