A Practical Guide to Asset Management for Rail and Metro - published today!
Due to huge interest in this area from our global community of readers we have today published 'A Practical Guide: Asset Management for Rail and Metro' and now offer you the first chance to download and read this free and exclusive publication. A full and accurate knowledge of all infrastructure assets, where they are located and what condition they are in, is now essential to effectively manage a modern rail or metro network. When asset management is executed effectively it can make a network more efficient, less costly to run and help keep disruption to a minimum.
However, it is not always this simple. Obsolescence, outdated operating systems, database issues, a staff skills shortage are just some of the challenges that can limit efforts to develop asset management and fully maximise its potential. So to further support industry growth, for this practical guide, the 20th in our series, we have spoken to leading experts and practitioners from around the world from both transport agencies and solutions providers to help you improve, develop and maximise the potential of modern asset management solutions.
