The future of Control Command and Signalling Planning is digital

PlanPro accomplishes the basis of a continuous digital data management without any media disruption for Control Command and Signalling (CCS) systems. The data model contains the systems of electronic interlocking (IXL), level crossing protection and ETCS.

Planning support

Acceleration of planning processes for CCS by rationalisation and elimination of “paper interfaces”, standardisation of planning, automation of routine tasks and plausibility checks.

Operational planning survey:

Avoiding order changes and amendments by the chance of realistic operational surveys of  CCSIXL- planning, without any media disruption and already during the early design phase.

Optimising data management:

Avoiding data redundancy and multiple inputs in data systems for infrastructure, improved purchasing conditions of CCS in case of complete digital data transfer.

The open data model of the CCS systems of DB Netz AG contains all projectable data including the required process data. Current state is version 1.9.0, published February 25th, 2019. The following changes and additions have been made to the current version:

-    Error correction and supplementation in IXL modelling

-    Supplement to level crossing protection systems

-    Inclusion of the special features of the next IXL generation

-    Integration of the European Train Control System ETCS
incl. further national applications with Eurobalises
