Webinar: Digital Asset Monitoring

How to use Digital Asset Monitoring to reduce costs and improve performance across rail operations

Original broadcast date: April 21st 2021

As rail networks become increasingly digitally-oriented, the volume and quality of data produced by day-to-day operations has grown exponentially.

This presents huge challenges around the collection and analysis of performance data, but also presents new opportunities to deliver tangible improvements to the railway.

Using real-world examples, this webinar from Maarten Zanen, from Ricardo's Rail Asset Management team,  demonstrates how asset managers in the rail sector can reduce maintenance costs and improve performance by applying the latest monitoring techniques. He explains: 

WHY you should routinely monitor rail assets - which assets and interfaces can be monitored and for what benefit?

WHAT are the best monitoring techniques for your organisation - can you ensure they will achieve your objectives?

HOW to combine existing and new data streams - how will you translate the trends, patterns and logic into usable 'data fingerprints?
