RATP is the major operator of Parisian public transports and chose ControlBuild to develop a simulation environment dedicated to system qualification and integration.
With 10 million passengers transported every day, 44,800 employees, and a turnover of four billion Euro, RATP is the world’s 6th largest urban transport operator. In 2006, RATP began a transport modernization project that will last until 2025. Three targets were set: to cope with the continuous growth of traffic, to offer a modernized response to passengers’ expectations, and to optimize economic and environmental performance, with absolute respect for operating safety. As part of the Paris metro modernization program, RATP chose to develop a totally innovative metro management method: Ouragan. This new operating mode, founded on continuous inspection of train speeds, means that the interval between two trains can be reduced in complete safety, and more trains to be made available to passengers. The ControlBuild simulation environment was chosen because it provides an integral response to the stated objectives.
