New software for HR and rolling stock scheduling

The use and deployment of staff and vehicles at the right time and in the right place are key factors for smooth railway operations. Currently there are around 430 employees and 360 railway vehicles administered by the MGBahn and the Gornergrat Railway. The administration will be even more efficient in the future with the RailOpt software.

The scheduling and administration for the MGBahn and the GGR will be optimised thanks to RailOpt. The programme ensures adherence to the Working Hours Act (Arbeitszeitgesetz) and assists schedulers in their daily work. The scheduled employees will be able to access their most current work schedules and/or assignments on a new platform at all hours. The aim is to improve scheduling quality. The transition to using the scheduling and administration programme for routine operations is planned for 2017.

NAV 2015 project

An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system represents the central nervous system of a company. It influences the entire operation. Value streams are displayed and many interfaces must function correctly, and interdepartmental business processes are networked. 

“Navision”, the current software used by the ERP system of the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, has reached the end of its product life cycle and will be replaced by the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 (shortened to NAV 2015) version in 2017.
