ATTUne is a new timetable planning software package, already being adopted by Train Operator franchise bidding teams and Rail consultancies to optioneer and plan timetables in time pressured environments.

Whether planners are experienced or are new to planning and the network, ATTUne is designed to be easy and quick to pick up and use and to provide valuable insights into the feasibility of the timetables produced, providing quick and painless bulk timetable editing, analysis and publishing. Timetable loading; importing and exporting as PIF, CIF or SPG; TSR checking; conflict detection; route validation; publishing to working timetable format and other bulk operations can all be performed in fractions of a second. Furthermore, validation displays and other views are maintained live as the timetable is edited. ATTUne interfaces with Tracsis’ TRACS-RS software for rolling stock planning and as a basis for train crew planning.

ATTUne has been adopted by Network Rail for Timetable Planning Rule compliance checking, and is capable of rapidly assessing very large amounts of data. For example, importing a national timetable of 22,000 trains, routeing it on to the infrastructure and checking for compliance against all Train Planning Rules (Headways, Junction Margins, Platform Re-occupations, Dwell Times, Timings & Timing adjustments, Turnaround Times and Routes) takes less than a minute.

ATTUne includes visualisation of timetables (e.g. train graphs), infrastructure (via a geospatial representation with local topological views) and Timetable Planning Rules.
