SNCF RESEAU is the main French national rail network operator, who manages and maintains rail infrastructure in France.

Within the “Topographic Analysis and Techniques” division, Visual Planning was asked to provide expertise to support these specialized teams in project management, drafting specifications, site monitoring and topography inspections.


SNCF Réseau’s principal need was to implement planning software that provides an overview of all human and material resources at a given time. The purpose was to gain visibility and traceability in intervention schedules for agents who often move across the country.

According to Jérôme PEUCELLE, Surveyor and Topographer at SNCF Réseau, worksite planning is a major challenge in this department. The workload is substantial, making it necessary to use planning software to properly manage teams, materials, vehicles and equipment allocated to worksites. All in one click!

Before deploying Visual Planning, the ATT division of SNCF Réseau (Topographic Analysis and Techniques) relied the numerous plannings on paper calendars and magnets to manage their resources. On the other hand, this classic method is limited regarding schedule distribution to operational teams. It also limits work tracking, resource updating, etc…

SNCF Réseau’s main need was to implement an agile system without delay. This system had to automate and centralize all information. On the other hand, he had to ensure proper monitoring, obtain increased efficiency and optimize the management of the various resources.
