Lately you’ve been hearing about how asset management is becoming top of mind for railway operators, but why? The fact is your assets do not fail simply because of their age. They fail because of their condition, their intensity of use and the type of usage. Many factors go into poor asset utilization – including lack of integration and disconnected systems and processes. But one thing is certain: When your assets are sub-optimized, you are at risk with your stakeholders – your passengers, your workforce, your management, and your entire ecosystem.
