Take Control: Building with Flexibility Results in Sustainabilityn

Technology continues to evolve faster and faster everyday. Unfortunately, so do the minds, strategies, and plans of railroad operating planners and personnel. This means that new capacity and capital project plans of a railroad are fluid and are constantly changing. As a railroad engineering employee, there are few tasks more difficult than planning projects and allocating resources to a plan that remains fluid.
To solve this problem, you need to have the ability to keep up with the demand by minimizing project duration and resource effort required. How do you accomplish this?

Start building with flexibility and gain sustainability.
All of the products competing with FlexYard and FlexTrim today are built without adequate flexibility required for a railroad to sustain a system on its own. 3Z’s products are.
FlexYard and FlexTrim are completely configured using MySQL databases. This allows all of the yard, I/O, comms, networking, logging and alarming to be easily re-configured or modified. Adding new hardware for new switches or track circuits requires more I/O, which can be added just like the existing I/O. Once the database is updated to accept the new equipment, it needs to be incorporated into the user interface.

With 3Z’s FlexDraw, our customers can now add and modify the user workstation to display the new field equipment as they see fit. FlexDrawallows our customers to complete projects which require a modification of a yard system quickly, without delay or additional costs… On Their Own!
