swissTAMP – big data in proactive track asset management
Posted: 23 November 2016 | | No comments yet
For Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), swissTAMP is a key component in building a proactive asset management system vital for the efficient and effective planning of systematic track maintenance.
By linking data from various systems in the SBB IT network, information on the behaviour of assets can be displayed clearly and the necessary maintenance measures identified. This enables maintenance and renewal measures to be planned in an objectively traceable, needs-driven manner; making them optimally cost-effective for several years to come in terms of time, place and funding.
The launch of swissTAMP represents a significant milestone in the transition from reactive (find and fix) to proactive (predict and prevent) maintenance planning. SBB’s asset management focuses not only on linking and displaying measurement and diagnostic data, but also combining these with real-time and planned operating data and specific wear-and-tear functions from the vehicle-track-interaction.
Here SBB experts Jochen Holzfeind, Krzysztof Wilczek and Ingolf Nerlich explain that this pioneering approach opens up new opportunities for designing a future-oriented asset management system.
