HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR ASSET MANAGEMENT

Asset Data

From the very beginning, DTM comprises a predefined structure that reflects the entire railway infrastructure. Thus, a modern and contemporary asset management of the user's assets becomes reality from the first second on - without spending unnecessary time on definition and elaboration of structures. This does not simply save time and money - rather, it allows end users to work efficiently and effectively right from the initial phase and thus to achieve a holistic ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀management of their assets.

Visualisation

Entering the asset management tool gives the user a holistic overview of the status of the assets. This is where all messages concerning the assets are compiled and concisely displayed. The modern design is also exceptionally user-friendly, allowing them to navigate intuitively and make their way through the menu.

Maintenance

DTM – a product of the global market leader in railway infrastructure system solutions - has quite some special features. One of these particular highlights are best-practice inspection lists for the superstructure. In addition, predefined checklists for the inspection of the turnout are included - both for the track and for the signalling part.

Another feature includes scheduling information for upcoming maintenance tasks, which allows the user to see immediately whether he is behind schedule or whether scheduling has been completed as planned.

Condition Monitoring

The DTM provides a brief overview of the status of the assets. In addition to the most up-to-date measurements and information on limit values, the results of the last switch movements as well as the history are displayed.

Inventory

With the help of our software, spare parts orders, requirements, reorders and approvals can be easily coordinated and controlled. In addition, simple and fast tracking of stock and its availability is possible.

Reporting

DTM leaves the user the freedom to shape the performance indicators and statistical parameters. Alongside a standard package, which is available from the initial setup, other major criteria can be added and filtered as preferred.
