HIGHLIGHTS

  • Railway maintenance activities require disruption of train services, which has a direct economic impact, and results in idle hours for the workforce and inefficient use of maintenance equipment. 
  • Efficient asset management requires sufficient ‘access’ (train-free) hours on the track. It is also important to reduce infrastructure maintenance and renewal costs without compromising safety and customer satisfaction. 
  • An AI-ML framework that does complex analysis by combining timetable and infrastructure cost modelling, and studying the scope, duration and location of maintenance work, will ensure intelligent decision-making that balances operations and cost
