Whitepaper: Maintenance strategies in the rail industry
Overview of the differences between the individual maintenance strategies
In the past decades, technical development has taken a rapid path - also in the railway sector. Rail vehicles and railway facilities are becoming more and more complex and efficient. It is therefore all the more important that the systems are in perfect operating condition and ideally working without malfunctions or total failures. Maintenance strategies are an important prerequisite for this.
Maintenance strategies can be used to achieve various overriding goals, e.g. extending the life expectancy of rail vehicle fleets and railway facilities while taking a given budget into account, reducing disruptions or even preventing system failures. The management can pursue different maintenance strategies, so that there is not just "one" strategy - different approaches are suitable for different components. But what are the concrete maintenance strategies for the railway sector and how do they differ?
