The whole railway market is shifting towards remote monitoring of its key assets. Data analysis and connectivity aims to gradually change preventive maintenance from a systematic approach to on-condition and, eventually, to predictive maintenance.

Alstom’s rail system approach is focused on system behaviour, which is what delivers service reliability. Alstom understands the rail components and systems as a whole, as much as it understands data treatment. We put both worlds at service of the rail performance.

Discussed during this webinar

  • Alstom’s business oriented overview of data capturing and how we turn the data into information for decision making, maintenance tasks and improvements in rail operation
  • Learn how to switch from preventive maintenance (mileage-based) into condition-based and predictive maintenance while reducing risk to a minimum
  • Learn how to implement CBM and predictive maintenance with our use-cases in operation. We share lessons on how we reduced service affecting failures in doors and improved passenger comfort and reduced costs on HVAC.
