Find optimal train pathways in the network by incorporating constraints and rules. An optimized solution from RailMAX includes: meet-and-pass/meet-and-overtake decisions, train speeds, track maintenance, priorities, queuing, resource allocation and operating objectives.
OUR OTHER RAIL SOLUTIONS
Rail by Optym is a suite of network planning and scheduling systems that help in every aspect of the rail business – train scheduling, locomotive scheduling, crew scheduling, yard planning and train movement planning.
Our data analytics solutions prepare the right data in the right format. Our simulation solutions then use this data to perform a variety of what-if studies and recommend the optimal configuration. Our optimization products use the configuration to evaluate countless options and recommend the best one.
What People Are Saying
“It is a pleasure to work with the Optym Rail team. They are very hard-working, sincere, and committed to the product. They do whatever is needed to make the project successful.”
AVP – Locomotive Management & Network Operation
“ILPO is able to semi-automate our plan maintenance process, free up manpower, and create balanced and lower cost locomotive operating plans. It also gives us the ability to perform a variety of what-if analysis helping to improve locomotive productivity and utilization.”

AVP – Locomotive Planning & Utilization
“CSXI has used Optym to analyze our terminal operations with great success on identifying bottlenecks and guiding improvements in the terminal layout and operating plan.”
Robert J. Giradot
Director Network Simplification
“Optym has helped BNSF save double-digit million dollars a year in operating expense and reduced the time to create, evaluate, and implement design changes from weeks to days with fewer design personnel.”
AVP – Service Design, BNSF Railway
“Since LSR (Locomotive Shop Router) went into production, the number of past-due-Q locomotives has dropped from 30-50 locomotives per day to only 5-10 per day, and there is a more even flow of locomotives to shops. Not only do we believe that this project has saved at least 20 locomotives, it has also improved overall shop productivity.”
