Urban transport and rail organizations have highly asset-centric operations and services, requiring effective asset management for better business outcomes and customer experience.
Effective asset management and asset performance are key business differentiators and directly impact operations, the ability to meet customer commitments, obtaining federal funding, and the bottom line. However, asset management is becoming increasingly complex due to aging infrastructure and fleet, increasing demand, and budget constraints. Therefore organizations need comprehensive and integrated solutions to manage and maintain the complex portfolio of multi-disciplinary assets and adopt maintenance strategies that balance cost, risk, performance, and utilization while ensuring reliability, safety, and regulatory compliance.
Meeting the needs of a complex transport and rail network requires a unified and integrated solution to optimize asset performance and reduce downtime and costs.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has designed an industry-centric transport asset management solution to address these unique requirements. Built on the market-leading IBM Maximo® platform, it enables streamlined and intelligent asset management.
Smarter asset management is a business imperative for urban transport and rail businesses across the globe. However, maintaining a complex portfolio of spatially spread infrastructure assets, including fleet and civil and fixed structural assets, is a big challenge. Organizations are moving away from multiple, siloed asset management solutions to a comprehensive and integrated enterprise asset management (EAM) and asset performance management (APM) system that can be leveraged across the asset life cycle.
One of the key priorities is unifying and standardizing processes while accommodating variations across asset classes and types. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are also gaining importance with the adoption of digitally connected smart assets, as data-driven decisions will play a vital role in improving maintenance strategies. Implementing geographic information systems and mobility solutions can improve productivity by facilitating contextual and collaborative operations.
