Rail Infrastructure Asset Management 2016
Increasing the life of rail infrastructure through strategic asset management and rehabilitation
With billions of dollars being pumped into transport infrastructure, the rail industry is significantly expanding. Many new projects are in the pipe line with others nearing their completion, generating a critical need for rail asset owners to incorporate proactive and preventative maintenance processes into their asset management plans.
With this in mind, Rail Infrastructure Asset Management 2016 will specifically focus on asset management and maintenance processes, covering both new and existing infrastructure, including:
•Improving rail infrastructure through strategic asset management and scheduling for each stage of the asset life-cycle in order to optimise existing assets and extend their life
•Refining maintenance processes of critical infrastructure through proactive and predictive maintenance of existing and new assets at optimum levels to ensure operational efficiency
•Implementing best practice methodology and technology to facilitate effective investigation, review and audit of rail infrastructure for reporting and maintenance productivity
•Improving the operational performance and service of assets by increasing their capacity, availability and reliability and simultaneously reducing asset failure rates
