Innovative Asset ManagementInvestments in mobility infrastructure and vehicles are long-term decisions that are crucial for the future economic success of any mobility provider. Given the fact that sustainability, availability, performance, risks and OPEX arising from a particular investment throughout its entire lifecycle must be considered. The use of digital technology and AI opens up new opportunities here.
A striking example is digital asset management for rail systems. It provides the transparent basis for maintenance that focuses on reliability and availability as well as for asset management according to ISO 55.001. It provides data and AI-based decision support for the continuous optimization of the asset usage throughout the entire asset lifetime.
Another innovative approach comprises Siemens’ Application Suite Railigent. It helps to minimize downtime through predictive maintenance based on the evaluation of continuously transmitted train condition data. For example, necessary maintenance and repair measures can be defined when the vehicles arrive.
This contributes to outstandingly lean, streamlined, and cost-efficient maintenance and helps to ensure up to 100% availability. Accordingly, only a small number of substitute trains have to be kept in reserve, which in turn has a positive impact on CAPEX.
