Objective & context
In 2008, the first discussion between AKKA Belgium and the customer established a need for the digitization of the customer engineering process dedicated to the deployment of ETCS on the Belgian railway network.
The ETCS is a system that safely optimizes the control of train traffic.
The AKKA team supported the customer in the creation of a set of IT tools: the ETCS Process Automation Tools. The Tool Suite allows the digitization of the Signalling assets, tracks updates and generates all the inputs necessary for the installation and configuration on the field of ETCS devices.
Output of the engineering process (installation plan, hardware configuration, documents for certification, …) are automatically generated and therefore reduces the risks of errors, enhances and tracks the quality of signalization data, and reduces the time and workload for the production of installation studies (from several months to a couple of weeks).
