Manage common data, create timetables
Your route network and the corresponding common data can be managed in an interactive map. Even stops and route options can be visualized in this manner. This makes planning more tangible.
DIVA Client automatically calculates the distances of route options and route option times from GIS data and saved trip time profiles.
Day types can be set using formulas. A calendar ensures that day types are assigned for all operating days and during the entire time frame of the project.
In this way, timetables can be created more conveniently based on their unique driving- and wait times or trip patterns – just a few clicks will do the job. Trips across day types can be edited synchronously; interval timetable automation makes work more efficient.
Create vehicle schedules
DIVA Client guides you through individual planning steps and makes suggestions for block construction.
The system constantly checks planning for errors and conflicts. An important criterion is the block’s ability to contain duties.
Where necessary, DIVA Client automatically completes planning and adds missing block sections or operational trips.
Optimize connections, create interval timetables
DIVA calculates realistic connection relations and thus optimizes achievability of connections (guaranteed connection – link to 1.4.4, Anschlussoptimierung). On this basis, corresponding interval timetables can be created.
Statistically analyze & control costs
With DIVA, valid statistics for operational (cost-)parameters can always be accessed. The solution provides information about the current/required vehicle usage and for productive route lengths.
All values can be displayed as images or numerically based on KPIs. That helps for tender planning and for internal controlling.
Printing timetables & vehicle schedules
The final timetable and vehicle schedule can be printed out as a Gantt chart, a graphic timetable, route sheet or table.
Alternatively export the data using parameters in Excel. This is especially useful if driving personnel need to have a schedule directly before duty begin.
