Improving rail maintenance strategies

Since up to 25% of annual railroad budgets are dedicated to maintenance-of-way, rail operators know that “optimal network system performance is dependent upon effective use of accurate, consolidated and up-to-date asset information,” says Bentley Solutions Executive-Rail and Transit Andrew Smith, host of a webinar on “the challenges that exist in managing rail information.”

Achieving and maintaining a state of good transit repair

Ensuring that rail and transit systems are maintained in a state of good repair (SGR) “is critical to providing efficient, reliable, and safe service,” says Bentley Solutions Executive-Rail and Transit Andrew Smith, host of a webinar on “well-maintained, reliable transit infrastructure—track, signal systems, bridges, tunnels, vehicles and stations.”

Better railroading through Big Data

As railroads develop and implement new generations of sophisticated inspection and monitoring systems, they find themselves collecting large volumes of data, at increased frequencies across a variety of interrelated systems.

Bentley video: Analyze rail and track condition

Bentley Systems’ AssetWise Operational Analytics platform affords users the opportunity “to quickly assess every dimension of railway infrastructure and its condition over time,” the company says. “Assess and learn from past maintenance activities. Make better decisions about track and other m/w assetts. Determine what work needs to be done and where, and predict when it should be done.”
