This page links to snapshots of ongoing modelling work. The EULYNX Data Preparation model forms the basis for the EULYNX data exchange format for exchange of signalling engineering and configuration data between Infrastructure Managers and Suppliers/Engineering consultancies.
The contents presented in the public snapshots may be unfinished, may contain errors and can be changed without prior notice. No formal change management is in place at this phase.

The EULYNX Data Preparation model is created from joint effort of infrastructure managers of the EULYNX Consortium.
Data preparation today
Every Infrastructure Manager has a long tradition of presenting signalling information in given shapes and formats, inherited from the days of paper and steam.
The signalling supply industry ingests and interprets this information, and processes it. Ingestion and interpretation of data are the weak links in the chain.
Step 1: EULYNX DP publishes UML model.
The UML model is a Platform Independent Model (PIM). It is richly documented and machine readable.
IT for signalling is a niche industry because it is closely tied to national markets.
Customising software is expensive when each IM has his own model, e.g. PlanPro, IMSpoor, SDEF, Gaia. Software developers rarely have both rail and IT know-how so the language, jargon and culture remain barriers to developing pan-European software packages.
EULYNX DP is designed to help data break out of the national silo.
