“Weichenlos” Programme

The “Weichenlos” project (meaning “no points”) currently underway in cooperation with Swiss Federal Railways, had a successful first year in 2020 and is going full speed ahead to the complete satisfaction of all involved.


This year, we must closely monitor the various project phases of the 85 track renewal projects (in the “Track renewal 2021–2024” programme). To do so, a LEAN planner based on Last-Planner technology has been created and has been operational since July.


15 “Track renewal 2023” projects are planned using BIM. In a first step, the existing structures to be modified were modelled and the project modelling requirements were specified. The individual project models are now being created on this basis. Thus, BIM is used operationally in the “Weichenlos” programme.
