How to Turn Data into Real Value for Rail Operations

The transportation industry is changing, with more and more vehicles, assets and even the most insignificant items having the ability to generate data.

SAVANA is the Digitalization platform designed to be the rational, scalable and standard way to integrate all data initiatives and future projects, fulfilling users needs, from the operators, maintainers and users perspective in terms of processes, tools, information requirements and interfaces.

Applying Digital Twin In Infrastructure Projects For Prescriptive Maintenance, Using Historical & Current Data To Deliver A Future Virtual Infrastructure!02

This session introduces applying Digital Twin solutions to risk management in Rail. These solutions could ensure predictive maintenance applications, which can create virtual modelling of maintenance processes to prevent high-risk events reducing maintenance scheduling, and components costs for operators.

• Defining Digital Twin In Rail, What Does It Look Like & What Are The Boundaries?
• Benefits of digital twin, Infrastructure mapping for real time planning and, and predictive maintenance
• Delivering long term infrastructure components cost savings during early testing using a simulation model based approach
• The importance of data management, developing a common data structure to model data for your digital twin

10:30 AM

Digital Twin Case Study: Mastering The Complexity of Integration Projects With Ongoing Modifications On The Track And Infrastructure.

How Do We Go From Our Existing Systems To A Fully Working Digital Twin Within The next 5 Years?

• Applying Digital Twin during design testing phase to determine the functional behaviour between the existing systems and the future system to deliver component cost savings
• Building a digital map of your rail infrastructure and digital data preparation of the track to create a real-time Rail Infrastructure Virtual Business Conference of your real infrastructure
• Working with suppliers to integrate your digital twin model in the test bench to save onsite testing
• Validating Your Digital Twin To Ensure Safety And Reduce Costly Errors
