Delivering efficient transport solutions is complex, relying on many interdependent components to work together harmoniously. Often there is more than one way to examine and solve multiple, correlated problems. Simulation offers limitless opportunities for you to explore and investigate each solution holistically so that you can confidently make the right decision.

1024 design provides expertise and experience in transport simulation analysis. We use computer modelling to visualise existing and possible operations. We analyse data from various scenarios to find the best outcomes. We provide training for your team to execute and monitor the implementation internally.

Our difference is the integrated and multi-faceted approach. 1024 design has strong partnerships with software developers and consultancy service providers worldwide. We bring together the best in the industry to help you find the best possible solution that increases operation efficiency and safety; reduces cost; improves customer satisfaction; and ultimately your bottom line.

Here are our current partners.

Partner List



Operations and Network

Operations and the network are the heart that connects every area of transport management. We use both dynamic simulation and statistical data analysis tools to examine and calculate how the operations and the network interact with other components such as timetable and scheduling; power and traction; yard operations; and people and traffic.

We can help you test any planned improvements and changes to evaluate the broader impacts on the entire network, and against current and projected growth.

Timetable and Scheduling

Our approach in timetable and scheduling development extends beyond the service delivery to include all its supporting and connecting components so that you can ensure the optimal service at each delivery point.

  • Interconnectivity between multiple modes of freight transport such as shipping, trucking, rail, and logistics hubs
  • Interconnectivity between multiple modes of passenger mobility such as buses, trams, cars, bicycles, ropeways, ferries, light rail and trains
  • Revenue and non-revenue services
  • Operational planning for the start and end of services and stock balancing
  • Optimal unit stabling between peak services

Power and Traction

Understanding power and traction requirements is crucial to manage network capacity and improve system robustness. We use the latest state-based and dynamic/continuous simulation so that you can identify the power consumption at every point of operation.

  • Facility and system design and components rating
  • Power demand and energy consumption for current and future traffic
  • Rolling stock scheduling/procuring to optimise energy requirements
  • System and substation demand and optimisation
  • System maintenance schedules for service reliability
  • Electromagnetic compatibility studies (EMC)
  • Energy recovery systems
  • Energy minimisation/costs reduction opportunities

Yard Operations

Yard operations is not just a black box of input and output for network and timetable design. Our approach is to open up the box so that you can gain deeper insight on how elements operate and integrate with each other and the whole network.

  • Infrastructure change verification and evaluation
  • Throughput capacity investigation in marshalling yards
  • Passengers transport capacity
  • Bottlenecks and their elimination
  • Resource allocation: optimal locomotive requirement and personnel work shifts scheduling
  • Planning operation during maintenance or reconstruction stages

Pedestrian and Traffic

With people and traffic simulation, we can help you analyse and interpret the complex interactions between the physical infrastructure and the movement of people: both passengers and pedestrians. Our focus is overall customer experience because improved customer satisfaction encourages greater take-up of public transport, consequently increasing your revenues, improving social capital and reducing the dependence on road transport.

  • Pedestrian flow and passenger throughput
  • Interconnecting services: transfer time whilst connecting to a continuing service and reducing waiting time between connecting services
  • Station optimisation
  • Passenger loading impact on network operations
  • Impacts of delayed services on the station traffic and recovery times
  • Special events and emergencies
