The modernization of our ‘oldest’ PTV Visum assignment method has led to a massive speed-up. On a high spec machine the German-wide model Validate with more than 20.000 zones and five million links runs in less than one hour! The same model on the same machine took 14.5 h in PTV Visum 2021. Run times are impressive not only for this model but for a number of different models we tested, also on typical standard machines. Besides the speed up the classical equilibrium provides high precision solutions, meaning that for most networks a gap of 10-8 are possible.
