Science meets practical application: since 1993, iRFP emerged from a group of students of TU Dresden, Faculty of Transport Sciences Friedrich-List, who have been working on the project timetable construction system (railway operation simulation and timetable construction). Since 1997, the FBS program package has been designed for the electronic design of all timetable documents required for railway operations.

Apart from development and marketing of FBS, iRFP fills the role of the know-how transfer between university research and practical application. Thus, iRFP embodies the interface between traffic engineering sciences and the organisation and operation of modern traffic systems. Its core activity represents railway operation and its interconnection with other means of transport.

iRFP takes a determing part in the development of a uniform data exchange norm for railway specific data and is a founding member of the railML®-Initiative.

Concepts and expert's reports

Next to development and cultivation of FBS together with additional applications we appoint also concepts and expert reports in the area of railway operation against the background of our long-term experience and extensive database.


Here you can find information about the history of iRFP.


To asses us and our previous work we compiled an overview of reference projects and customers.


As a single planning device cannot cover all the requirements in documents for railroading and the numerous different local formats, we work in close cooperation with some companies in order to constantly extend the range of our services by widening in a relevant way the advantages of several programme systems.
