Dassault Systèmes announced that Eurostar, an international company that provides high-speed train service in the Channel Tunnel, prefers the DELMIA Quintiq application, which operates on the basis of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to improve resource and maintenance planning activities.
Carrying passengers through the Channel Tunnel between London, Paris, Brussels, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, Eurostar has carried 2017 million passengers since 10,3. The company, which has ambitious plans, wants to grow its business by increasing the frequency of trips and to offer its customers the best possible travel experience. Dassault Systèmes and partner Ordina have developed a two-component solution to support Eurostar.
“We needed a solution that could plan in different time periods and be configured according to various rules and regulation sets,” says Philippe Dabancourt, Eurostar's Train Services and Performance Director. At the same time, this solution should have been something that our planners could use comfortably - both in the field of assignment and maintenance, so it was very important to support multiple languages and time zones. ”
Ordina Supply Chain Director Wouter Tielemans said: “We are delighted to have chosen DELMIA Quintiq as a solution to Eurostar's complex workforce and maintenance planning needs. Thanks to our industry experience, we offer a fully integrated solution to the specific IT needs of Eurostar and fully integrated into the existing IT structure. This will enable Eurostar to provide a high level of service to its customers and to grow its business easily. ”
“Consumer expectations regarding transportation and mobility services are changing and influencing business models in all sectors,” said Olivier Sappin, Dassault Systèmes Vice President, Transport and Mobility. In high-speed trains, one of these sectors, safety and reliability requirements must be met in a context where trains are subject to different rule sets and timelines may be disrupted, ”he added. Integrated, smart applications can reduce complexity and speed up value generation. Eurostar's trust in Dassault Systèmes confirms our extensive experience in this industry thanks to DELMIA Quintiq applications. ”(xnumxvolt)
