Movement Planner

Make enhanced rail performance a reality through increased network velocity and capacity.

Wabtec’s Movement Planner solution is composed of three tiered capabilities to optimize railroad day-of- operations from planning through execution.

Network Visualization

The Network Visualization function helps detect conflicts in the entire network and allows for manual resolution of conflicts. It gives real-time train status and uses a Train Performance Calculator (TPC) to model train travel time with an accuracy of +/- 5 minutes for a 2-hour horizon. It also generates a look ahead forecast of 8 to 12 hours to better plan for crew call and asset allocation.

Network Optimization

The Network Optimization capability provides automated train meet/pass resolution based on Business Objective Functions (BOF) with a reliable and stable plan. This results in reduced variability of dispatching decisions and their impact on the network.


The Auto-Routing function provides automatic execution of optimized plans thus reducing human factors and improving productivity. It also improves plan compliance and maximizes benefits from the Movement Planner system.
