Abstract

This research proposes a response model for a disrupted railway track inspection plan. The proposed model takes the form of an active acceptance risk strategy while having been developed under the disruption risk management framework. The response model entails two components working in a series; an integrated Nonlinear Autoregressive model with eXogenous input Neural Network (iNARXNN), alongside a risk-based value measure for predicting track measurements data and an output valuation. The neural network fuses itself to Bayesian inference, risk aversion and a data-driven modelling approach, as a means of ensuring the utmost standard of prediction ability. Testing on a real dataset indicates that the iNARXNN model provides a mean prediction accuracy rate of 95%, while also successfully preserving data characteristics across both time and frequency domains. This research also proposes a network-based model that highlights the value of accepting iNARXNN’s outputs. The value is formulated as the ratio of rescheduling cost to a change in the risk level from a missed opportunity to repair a defective track, i.e., late defect detection. The value model demonstrates how the resilience action is useful for determining a rescheduling strategy that has (negative) value when dealing with a disrupted track inspection plan
