For its operations, Lineas uses 200 locomotives, of which 150 are in ownership, and operates an owned fleet of 6700 railcars
  • Lineas will present how it uses various sources of data ranging from old-school massive and multiple excel files, ERP SAP data, to state-of-the-art near real-time sensor data to create a usage pattern of its locomotives. Thereby allowing Lineas to optimise maintenance on these locomotives

| ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG

A view inside ÖBB´s asset management system

Today´s Infrastructure Asset Managers are dealing with permanent changing demands. This entails the need for new methods that help us to keep up with the fast-changing environment. Those methods have to handle challenges, opportunities as well as risks and have to enable decision-making based on objective criteria. As part of this presentation, we ask you to join us on the journey towards an “Intelligent Asset Management System” – and encounter some challenges, approaches and stumbling blocks that go with it as well as taking a peek towards future developments. In a nutshell, SMART objectives along with associated strategies are the key success factors to help us achieve the aim we pursue: “the right asset, at the right place, at the right time”.

Internet of Trains – How Digitalization changes the rail industry

Digitalization is changing the rail industry. It creates new opportunities for services to passengers and customers and it allows operators to optimize their way of working. At the same time it also changes the way rail companies, data analytics insight providers and customers work together and evolve. Business models also change and it is up to us to make the best out of this all to improve transportation.
