Case study



SNCF Réseau needed to improve the sharing of information between the various stakeholders to improve crisis management and reduce the time needed to restore train traffic during disruptions or crises on the national rail network. 
Having a high-performance software was key to reducing the time needed to restore train traffic.

The project to redesign the crisis management tool had been stalled for several years with no real prospect of success:
- difficulty to converge on the needs,
- high technical debt and inability to carry the load,
- high costs.

The operational and human impacts being daily, the general management wished to make it imperative to complete the project within 6 months.


> To have a powerful software that can be used nationally and on the move (smartphones and tablets) that can handle peak loads and share large data (photos, etc.)

> Obtaining excellent user acceptance thanks to exemplary ergonomics that make it easy to learn the software, with a goal of zero training
> Meet security and high availability requirements by deploying the software on existing production environments at SNCF




  • 5 tables of 10 people work in parallel on a common prototype during 2 days
  • At each table, the developer builds the desired features "live" with Faveod Designer 
  • In plenary, the arbitrations are taken easily after presentation of the deliverable of each table
  • Following the multi-hackathons: finalization in Agile mode to integrate user feedback and refine the ergonomics
