Even before the first vehicles leave the depot, IVU systems plan the deployment of buses, trams, trains and drivers. In doing so, statutory specifications such as regulations regarding break times and collective wage and operational conditions must be taken into consideration. As well as the everyday challenges of providing stable and reliable planning, large events, school holidays and construction work frequently require specially modified vehicle and duty schedules.

The intelligent algorithms of IVU.suite ensure optimal rosters for both vehicles and personnel. Fully automatic variant calculations, parameter analyses and adjustment optimisations reliably support all decisions made by service planning, right up to day-to-day operation. Our optimisation partner LBW Optimization GmbH – a spin-off company of the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) – specialises in state-of-the-art mathematical optimisation technology and its practical application.

Integrated duty and vehicle scheduling makes it easier to coordinate resources and deploy them efficiently. In this way, IVU.run and IVU.duty help planners perform their demanding tasks and ensure that vehicles and people keep moving.
