Does Railway Asset Data create more problems that it solves?

748 views

Published on

Fleet Managers and Maintenance teams can be overwhelmed by asset condition monitoring projects.

New IoT data sources are cause for anxiety to organisations: do I have the expertise to analyse the data? Do I have the internal organisation to act on the data? Do I need to invest in several new technologies and their integration? Do I know what problem I want to solve?

The journey from accessing proprietary data on the train, transforming it into actionable diagnostics and triggering work orders and mobile interventions is full of barriers and many projects fail to deliver value.

In this talk we will share our journey to unlock asset value, the hurdles we see the Industry is facing, and the best-practises our Clients followed to achieve success in their asset condition monitoring projects.
