Railways are seen as a low-cost alternative to air and road travel, and in several countries, a chief mode of transportation. They offer a cost-efficient way to move goods in large quantities. While long haul rail systems come to mind when we think of railways, some urban rail transit, rapid transit, and light rail systems are isolated from these national systems. Isolated systems can also be found in airports, mines, mountains, and tourist attractions. While the trains may be powered by any of numerous energy sources, diesel and electricity are the most common sources of energy used.
Modernization of railway systems also places increase focus on comfort, in addition to safety and reliability. Design requirements vary considerably based on the use of the vehicle, e.g. indoors vs. outdoors, freight vs. passenger, number of rails, maximum speed of the train and so on. MSC Software offers a complete set of solution to address the complex and unique problems faced by the railway industry.
