Added value through an optimised service mix

February 2014 | Johannes Kalupar, Wolfgang Rößle

The durability of products and solutions in the railway business leads, through the conjunction of new and existing technologies, to a high level of complexity. The demographic change in Europe with many experts due to retire in the near future will add to this challenge and alter the way how railway and infrastructure operators as well as manufacturers will ensure an efficient service delivery with respect to the issues of maintenance and operations. New approaches will move away from a reactive, product-specific service, towards a proactive, efficient, integrated and comprehensive one.
