IXRailOperator is meant to support the operational process of a RailOperator. The business which is supports is limited to the transport on cargo (and not passengers transport). In the first release the cargo is shipped by use of containers or trailers. In a later release, loose cargo in a wagon will be supported.
The RailOperator business exists out of several main areas.
The picture below gives an overview of the functional areas of IXRailOperator.
Apart from the usual order management and financial processes, core rail operator processes exist out of forwarding and execution.
Forwarding is the grouping of orders or loads and planning them on voyages. The voyages can either be managed by scheduled journeys or as individual railjobs. With Forwarding, railcargo can be planned on trains without the interest of planning on specific wagons.
Execution will be covered by IXRailOperator in close relation to Rail Forwarding. This functionality enables to user to position loads on specific wagons which are available on a certain rail voyage.
One should not expect the possibility to physically operate and support the rail networks.
