Abstract

In rail transport robustness issues are primarily used in planning. The sequence of subsequent transport processes depends on the planning. Problems occur with regard to passenger rail planning from long-term strategic decision-making to detailed planning. The structure of timetable is a key factor, that has effect on the transportation system robustness. For a robust timetable there is lack of disruption propagation. Correct dealing with time reserves is a multidimensional issue. Increasing time reserves increases also the robustness, while the network capacity decreases. Robustness is the system capacity to absorb or resist changes. This article presents survey of literature on robustness in the rail transport system. Rolling stock planning also affects the system robustness, taking into account the combination and train allocations to routes. Crew rostering is a problem of scheduling the work of train crew members. These steps can be subdivided into successive steps as, for example: crew planning which often consists of arranging work schedules, and the assigning them to employees in accordance with working time standards. There may also be combined stages such as integrated line planning (the infrastructure must satisfy the requirements of the timetable) and timetabling. Therefore, the paper shows an overview of robustness concepts and models in relation to given railway problems.
