Abstract

The studies we conducted address the subject of setting the standards of shunting operations in rail transport. Existing methods of standardization of shunting operations in rail transport are analyzed and their deficiencies are revealed. A mathematical model of technological time of the transposition of shunting train sets was built. We developed regression models of technological time for the semi-flights of the rounds of shunting locomotives for a train set and their transpositions at different speeds of shunting operations. Based on the analysis of tabular norms of duration of the execution of shunting operations, we proposed to use polynomial models as more convenient in practical application and reflecting the influence on the value of technological time not only from separate variables (factors) but their interaction as well. As a result of a full factor experiment with effects of pair interaction, the model is obtained of technological time of the transposition of shunting train sets, which adequately reflects the element of transportation process. We carried out calculations that confirm the adequacy of the developed model. The dependencies that we obtained are more convenient to apply in comparison to the tabular method of representation of the norms of time for the operations, it is recommended to use them when constructing simulation models of operation of the railway stations.
