From Idea to Innovative Prototype on BHP Billiton Iron Ore Challenges
This competition has finished.
Train Delay Classification & Performance Improvement
BHP Billiton is seeking innovative approaches to identifying productivity improvement opportunities by understanding root causes of delays. Rail delays are currently automatically generated by a delay accounting system, or manually entered by an operator and categorized if they detect a delay happened which is not automatically picked up. Potential Areas to consider:
- Given historical delay and source data, can a system be developed to automatically classify delays, and perhaps predict delays that will happen, before they happen.
- Is there a way to improve the train schedule based on the historical delays and bottlenecks that can be inferred from the data?
