Origin as a Tool for Studying Train-Handling Procedures

TÜV Rheinland Mobility Rail Sciences Division

Jack Chislett of TÜV Rheinland Mobility Rail Sciences Division investigates train derailments and performs other train studies for most of the major railroads in the country. Recently, Jack was given the job of investigating a “break-in-two” that occurred during throttle-up on a long freight train. Working from client-supplied event recorder data, track profiles and train consists, Jack performed data pre-processing before inputting data to industry-standard simulation models. Results were then output to Origin for further graphical analysis and presentation.

Bombardier's Flight Test Center uses Origin to Troubleshoot Flight Errors

By Erin Hatfield, Published October 1, 2013, Desktop Engineering

Researchers at the Bombardier Flight Test Center (BFTC) selected Origin to graph and analyze their aircraft flight test data. BFTC uses Origin to visualize its data and help isolate the cause of warning messages and other anomalies during real-world flight tests. Through a custom interface tailored to its workflow, BFTC imports, graphs and analyzes large volumes of data. Bombardier then makes system design changes as needed to its aircraft, during the development flight test phase. "The custom Origin interface enables us to prebuild our datasets, move the data to and from specific locations, and call it up automatically," notes Michael Konicki, section chief with BFTC. "We can import data using the tool, modify the plots, apply templates, and then export them to PDFs, which we use in our reports ¨C all in a single solution. Any type of data that we need to report, we can adapt the custom interface to process that data, a practice that is much more complex in Excel and other software. The ease of plotting and integration into our data system are key components of the Origin system."
