DELIVERING SOLUTIONS TO SOLVE THE PRODUCTIVITY CHALLENGE
Improving productivity and quality in your business typically results in increased passenger, employee and management satisfaction. By understanding mobility market trends, transportation companies’ needs and processes, regardless of their size or complexity, and by speaking their language, SISCOG offers schedulers, dispatchers, supervisors, and company executives the tools to quickly, effectively and accurately optimise their operational resources and daily work.
This in turn allows for high quality transportation services, helping your transportation company to increase its competitiveness, financial performance and benefit your passengers. By helping company productivity improve, our products also play an important role in helping you offer a seamless passenger experience.
Optimise your timetable, vehicle, and staff scheduling and dispatching
with the SISCOG Suite that comprises three independent, but integrated and modular products.
Powerful optimisers are underlying all of them, as are multiple decision-support levels and
web & mobile based interaction.
ONTIME, for creating and managing Timetables. A standard decision-support product that creates and manages optimised timetables, with the creation of services and network allocation over time, considering passenger demand, and operational constraints (for example, network capacity). ONTIME produces annual timetables down to day-today adjustments due to special events, such as holidays, large-scale events, and track engineering work.
FLEET, for scheduling and managing Vehicles. A standard decision-support product that creates and manages optimised vehicle schedules, considering expected passenger figures, the timetable, the network, vehicle specifications and needs, and operational constraints. FLEET produces long-term balanced routings or cyclic schedules, short-term calendar schedules, handles vehicles’ scheduled maintenance and other services, and provides decision-support during the day of operation. In the short-term calendar schedule, vehicles can be allocated to the balanced routings following irregular patterns or following regular rotation patterns based on the cyclic schedules.
CREWS, for scheduling and managing Staff. An award-winning standard decision support product that creates and manages optimised staff schedules, including both on board and local staff, considering timetables and vehicles schedules, staff skills and preferences, labour rules and operational constraints. CREWS produces long-term duties and cyclic schedules, short-term calendar schedules, and provides decision support during the day of operation. In the short-term calendar schedule, staff can be allocated to the duties following irregular patterns (for example, according to staff preferences) or following regular rotation patterns based on the cyclic schedules.
To guarantee an optimised solution,
all products are fully customisable to the reality and needs
of each individual transportation company, while including
significant parameterization capabilities.
EMPOWERING THE USER AT ALL LEVELS
We understand how important it is for a scheduler or dispatcher to feel supported during the scheduling or dispatching process and control the output of his work.
So we cater multilevel decision-support in our products, where the user may schedule manual, semi-automatic or automatically, benefiting from very intuitive graphical user interfaces (GUI) and several usability features.
By using the manual mode, our product acts as a computer-aided graphical scheduling tool signalling violations. With the semi-automatic mode the product suggests different alternatives. With the automatic mode an optimised solution is presented, either using default parameters or previously inserted restrictions and goals. The process may start in any mode and resort to any mode at any time.
COMPLETE INTEGRATION FOR ALL SCHEDULING PHASES AND RESOURCES
Each of SISCOG Suite products — ONTIME, FLEET and CREWS — is composed of several independent but fully integrated modules that address the whole resource scheduling and management cycle in transportation companies.
These modular, flexible and integrated solutions interface easily with other systems, allowing for long-term scheduling to real-time dispatching and post operation analysis. You can expect significant reductions in costs and scheduling time, benefit from the possibility of developing what-if scenarios, quick and easily recover from disruptions, schedule from scratch and reschedule an existing schedule when reality changes, and use multiple decision-support levels. Extensive reporting is also available, including decisive key performance indicators and other statistics to assess performance.
