EXTENDING TO TRANSPORT SECTOR THE OPTIMIZATION EXPERIENCE ALREADY TESTED IN AUTOMOTIVE, AEROSPACE AND ...AMERICA’S CUP

OPTIMIZATION

Thanks to the partnership with the company ESTECO SpA, Lift has started introducing optimization approaches within its business portfolio by integrating simulation models for the representation of transport phenomena with an external optimization tool based on genetic algorithms. Interesting applications of the approach have been already successfully implemented to face the following issues:

  • Energy efficient timetable problem
  • Capacity estimation of a sea terminal
  • Management of pedestrian flows within large buildings
  • Definition of optimal train timetable drafts.

The combination of the identification of the best optimization strategy with the availability of resources for parallel computing enables to tackle even quite relevant engineering problems within a period of time commensurate to the conventional operational needs for this kind of activities. Such methodology is likely to be assumed as the main novelty in the range of services offered by Lift.


Our consultancy activities involving optimization include:

Railway Optimization
Our methods and tools allow the identification of the most efficient balance between conflicting goals in the definition of the speed profile of trains.

Ports Optimization
We identify bottlenecks and estimate capacity of intermodal services.

Pedestrian Optimization
Optimal configuration of facilities and flow management are obtained using optimization tools.

Train schedule Optimization
From long freight single track lines to crowded passenger services, the combination between optimization and microsimulation leads to efficient timetables.
