Abstract [en]

Since  the Dutch  railway system  is  already  used  at  maximum  capacity and financial and spatial constraints  make  large  investments in infrastructure  im-possible, the railway infrastructure manager ProRail has opted for a focus on pro-cess  innovations to  transform  the  system  into  a  more  robust  one  capable  of  ac-commodating  the needed frequency  increases.  This  paper  therefore  focusses  on these  process  innovations  and  using  both  a  complex  adaptive  system  perspective as well as a  sociotechnical perspective presents the uncertainties decision makers within  the  involved  parties  must  face. Using  the  principles  stemming  from  re-search on transition management we assessed how different decision support tools such  as  computer  simulations,  gaming  simulations  and live-tests contribute to lowering  uncertainty. While  computer  simulations  offer  regime-inclined  players an arena to test out new solutions, gaming-simulations and live-test through their openness allow for the concerted planning of transformations
