Following the retirement of their Lead Scheduler, BC Transit needed to strengthen the run cutting expertise of its most senior schedulers. Accordingly, CSched performed a review of historical production schedules and of the Operators Labour Contract to ascertain the level scheduling efficiency and develop a training program tailored to the specific needs of BC Transit.
This training program covered both manual and automated run cutting in-line with the tools and algorithmic features of the HASTUS® scheduling software used by BC Transit.
The training program also covered vehicle-blocking strategies known to improve the quality of operator runcuts as well as advance run cutting model such Integrated Scheduling trough which the runcutting process is allowed to modify vehicle blocks.
BC Transit documented significant efficiency gains following this intense training program – see client's testimonial below.
