Life cycle file rail vehicle

Know your asset‘s biography

Asset biography provides a complete life cycle file for each of your assets. What makes it unique is that it is not limited to the maintenance history. Asset biography provides a holistic view on 365 days per year and 360° of the asset‘s technical, logistical and commercial parameters. Real-time data helps to plan your business.
Rail Asset is designed to meet especially ECM 3 standards. However, the software also possesses interfaces to ECM 4 (Maintenance delivery function) and ECM 2 (Maintenance development function).

Automatic machine data acquisition (MDA) is no longer a problem with Rail Asset. Sensor data are imported into the software and provide important real-time data on the condition of the vehicle or component.
Get the add-on Wheelset Management to Rail Asset to predict the life cycle of wheel sets.

Software Features

Planning of workshop order

The software supports Asset Managers in planning workshop orders. The ordering process is comparable to an online shop. The workshop order is based on the stabling schedule. Not only several vehicles can be assigned to one order, also preventive and corrective maintenance notifications can be combined.
The software displays the workshops that have the appropriate certification and capacity for maintenance activity.

Series management

Concrete data and process instructions for the individual vehicle series are available through ECM2 interfaces. This data provides the basis for your maintenance strategies.

Component management

All installation and removal activities of components are logged and time-stamped to ensure the traceability of components.
From the vehicle‘s point of view, this results in an installation image at any given time and from the point of view of the individual component, an installation history. The whole procedure also applies to safety-relevant components.

Wheelset management

The Wheelset Management is a sub-module of Rail Asset.
High-precision measurement data is linked to the software and thus predictions of the wheel sets‘ life cycles are made. Not only does this make your business more efficient, it also ensures a high level of railway safety.

Warranty monitor

Based on the warranty period specified in the master data, it can be determined whether the vehicle or component is still under manufacturer‘s warranty. With this function, existing warranty claims against the manufacturer are not disregarded.

Integrated workshop portal

The integrated workshop portal makes the exchange of information between Asset Manager and external workshops much easier and faster. Operational approvals or documentation are handled by the workshop in the software. This gives asset managers more transparency regarding maintenance activities. In addition, no manual entries by the asset manager are required, as these are done by the workshop. No interfaces are created between client and workshop. The workshop is stored in the system as a user and has access to necessary data.

Predefined series (templates)

The predefined templates provide a basic structure of the data that must be managed as a minimum. They give an indication of how the locomotive is technical built and which components are included. These templates ensure the continuity of the data.
