Document & Communication Management automates review processes for rail projects.



With the Rhein-Ruhr Express, North Rhein-Westphalia is creating higher quality regional rail transport. In the future, it is planned to run every 15 minutes between Cologne and Dortmund with improved connections and modern trains. Work is underway, with modernisation of 53 stations expected to be completed in 2025.

A highly complex review process in the place to carry out works, ensuring strict regulations and standards are adhered to.

With operations being carried out at multiple sites simultaneously, it is crucial that project managers and their stakeholders have a clear overview of how work is progressing, creating a clear picture of overall progress.

Thinkproject allows the various planning approval teams to implement defined individual workflows for review processes. These workflows control the complex review processes with full automation. In addition to being used for drawing management, objection management is also used.

Via Document & Communication Management, the Federal Railway Authority’s planning documents can be transferred to EBA (the authorising body) with qualified digital signatures, removing the need for manual signatures.


With redlining functionality, Thinkproject can significantly reduce review times and eliminate the need for sending documents via post. Reliable information is guaranteed for individual review periods, planning status and project milestones through automated time scheduling and report generation.

With planning, organisation and implementation of hearing procedures being a mammoth task, where thousands of objections can be generated, Thinkproject’s tailor-made processes, intelligent search functions and parallel handling saves time and money for project parties.
