The objective of IMPACT-1 is to help maximise the impact of Shift2Rail by analysing the socioeconomic impact of the S2R developments, identifying the future application use cases by System platform demonstrator scenarios and assess the impact of the development by using Key Performance Indicators.
The objectives of this proposal IMPACT-1 are:
Evaluating the effects for mobility, society and environment induced by new technology solutions and developments,
Introducing relevant targets and needs to create a more attractive, a more competitive and more sustainable rail system
Defining System Platform Demonstrators (SPD) that represent future application use cases
Defining Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that enable the monitoring and assessment of the Shift2Rail overall target achievement.
These objectives will be reached by performing a socio-economic impact analysis for high speed, regional, urban and freight. The model of the KPI shows the relation of the low-level KPI to the overall targets defined in the S2R Master Plan.
WP1 Project Management
The objectives of WP 2 are to:
specify relevant societal needs/values, target groups and implementation factors to which S2R targets and activities need to be compared;
analyse the obstacles of the current railway system to attract more passengers and to isolate the single and combined influence of different factors, which will be a quick-win starting point to customer attractiveness;
present which customer requirements and future needs have to be taken into consideration in any further activities of the railway system to get a success story today and in the future.
WP3 SPD Definition
The objective of WP3 is to define the four System Platform Demonstrators (SPDs) that will be used to demonstrate the effects of the Shift2Rail (S2R) activities. The four SPDs to be defined will cover the analysis of high-speed/mainline passenger rail, regional passenger rail, urban/suburban passenger rail and rail freight. For each SPD, important use cases will be defined to allow an analysis of the broad range of S2R activities.
WP4 KPI tree
The objective of the work package 4 is to show, how the expected results of the key Shift2Rail targets are achieved through the TDs’ work.
KPIs have to be defined in which the overall Shift2Rail targets: improved services for users and customer quality, reduced system costs, simplified business process and enhanced interoperability can be reflected. They have to be characterized in terms of their units, their lower level performance indicators and their relation to KPIs of capacity, reliability and life cycle costs (LCC).The result is an integrated KPI model that shows qualitatively the interdependencies of the KPIs horizontally between each other as well as vertically between low-level functional-technical parameters and high-level socio-economic objectives.
