Big data - basis for predictive maintenance of rail vehicle

An article by Dr.-Ing. Lars Schnieder and Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Bock was published in the March edition of the journal ZEVrail.

"The essential objective of Asset Management in railway companies is to maintain value and a reduction of down-times of rail vehicles over their entire life cycle. Digitization opens up the potential to develop the maintenance strategy to predictive maintenance. This article introduces a structured approach to the introduction of innovative maintenance concepts in existing rail vehicle fleets. On the basis of a comprehensive IT system architecture, an efficient analysis of massive data (big data) can be achieved, which provides specific recommendations for the optimization of maintenance."
