Efficient asset and maintenance management with ZEDAS

zedas®asset combines the classic functions of a maintenance planning and control system with innovative enhancements - based on industry knowledge from the railway industry.

Graphical visualization of all objects and data

Virtual track network and route band for the positionally accurate mapping of all objects including associated data such as states, measurement data and maintenance history.

Integration of all measurement data

The flood of measurement data from on-site inspections, measurement and video runs is imported, analysed, evaluated and archived.

Forecasts of the condition of assets

Make well-founded decisions for planning maintenance activities and investments by predicting the remaining life of assets.

Mobile work via app

For mobile service teams, recording faults and reporting work orders is easy and without media disruptions via app incl. offline function.

Integrated resource management and planning

Plan the requirements as well as the use of personnel and material within the scope of maintenance planning easily and with foresight.

Comprehensive maintenance management

The automatic calculation of deadlines and the digital fault and order management facilitate the maintenance organization.

 

Graphical visualization of the track network, all objects and data

The zedas®asset Rail Map is an information system for the visualization of maintenance objects, such as tracks, switches, signals, etc., as well as associated object information. Through several layers, maps and intuitive zooming the graphical presentation ensures quick orientation. Coloured layers visualise master, condition and maintenance information, such as orders and processing statuses. Views and object information can be called up with a click. This makes it easy to evaluate asset conditions, identify weak points and provide well-founded reasons for decisions.

 

Mobile app incl. checklists and shortage catalogue

The zedas®asset Smart app supports the inspection of assets with specific masks and queries. Employees can quickly record defects (including photos and GPS positioning) and classify them based on a stored catalog of defects. Defect-related checklists and maintenance instructions are available as a digital assistant for the inspection and the processing of maintenance activities. Thanks to the integrated online / offline functionality, data recorded on mobile devices is available for evaluation directly in the central maintenance management system. Processes are standardized, media disruptions eliminated and errors reduced.

Plan personnel, material and tasks

The targeted use of resources is the key to more efficiency. The zedas®asset Resource Manager supports the planning of maintenance activities and all required resources. The system shows free resources and planning conflicts and detects bottlenecks at an early stage. To ensure the legal certainty of maintenance, qualifications and certificates are managed directly in zedas®asset, stored in an audit-proof manner and considered in planning.

Digital operating diary

Handwritten and electronic lists or lack of shift handovers are a thing of the past. Thanks to the zedas®asset Operations Log, you keep track of daily operations, chronologically and without gaps. Text modules facilitate the comprehensive documentation of events. All information about operations is available to authorized employees promptly, without errors and without loss of information.

 

 

Maintenance 4.0 with Advanced Analytics

Organise with zedas®asset not only corrective and preventive (condition and / or time-based) maintenance activities but also predictive maintenance. Using innovative technologies such as IoT, AI and machine learning as well as multivariate diagnostic methods, we turn big data into smart data.

 

From the wealth of measurement and maintenance data, imported via standard interfaces, the zedas®asset Track Analyser creates a comprehensive picture of the overall condition of the track network. The system analyses, visualises, evaluates and archives all data automatically. The following data, among others, flow into the visualization of the track characteristics:

  • Track width, cant, torsion, longitudinal inclination
  • Rail head profiles and fastening
  • The position and height of the track centre line and the overhead contact line
  • Construction of ballast and substructure
  • Clearance gauge

By means of multivariate diagnostic procedures, the evaluation is automated across all measured variables. A single index provides information on the condition of assets and can even forecast this condition. Extended by the cost factor, the complex evaluation scheme serves as a solid basis for the efficient planning and budgeting of maintenance activities and investments.

Through the intelligent linking of data, zedas®asset Staff+ not only enables reporting, but also forecasts for personnel planning. The advanced data analysis determines the medium to long-term personnel requirements, among other things using company-specific data from maintenance planning. Order peaks can be identified and rescheduled at an early stage. Idle times or personnel bottlenecks are avoided. The service teams are optimally utilized.

zedas®asset Invest Manager links the data collected in day-to-day business and enables the user to create planning variants based on different scenarios. The system can automatically determine medium to long-term investment requirements (up to 30 years). With flexible variables, each scenario can be calculated. Comparative observations between the scenarios enable well-founded budget and investment decisions.

Interfaces: Connection to third-party systems

zedas®asset supports the transfer and integration of infrastructure measurement values and condition assessments from measurement trains, switch measurement systems as well as other expert systems as standard. The system has an integrated measurement data import functionality and thus ensures independence from the measuring device manufacturers. An intuitive user interface allows you to independently configure the import file for import, view and check measurement data and transfer it to the system after approval. This independent transfer of the measurement data ensures you freedom in the selection of the measuring device manufacturer.

zedas®asset already offers numerous standard interfaces that significantly reduce the implementation effort. Individual interfaces to third-party systems are provided on request.

The interfaces at a glance:

  • ERP systems
  • Standardized interface to measuring systems (measuring trains, measuring devices, trolleys)
  • IDMVU Standard interface for infrastructure Data Management
  • GIS solutions

 

 

Unique synergies in the rail industry

Lean processes through the combination of zedas®asset and zedas®cargo

 

ZEDAS provides the leading product suite for the seamless connection of asset and maintenance management with the logistics management of rail freight transport. In order to exploit the synergies from this strategic combination, the logistics processes mapped within zedas®cargo (planning, operational management, invoicing) and the technical asset management of the track infrastructure including the maintenance processes (maintenance work, fault management) are closely linked in zedas®asset.

The automated flow of information significantly reduces the need for coordination between railway operations and maintenance. All employees involved in rail operations always have the necessary information to control rail processes more easily and to optimize the utilization of the track infrastructure. Information from asset management on planned maintenance work and corrective measures on the track infrastructure (due dates of inspection dates, track closures and due dates and planned times of maintenance work) is used for capacity calculations and forecasts in operations planning. Rail operations benefit from improved traffic flow and minimized waiting times.

For maintenance, condition and load data, such as overruns and tonnages, are obtained directly from the operating process. The constantly updated database enables load-dependent maintenance planning and is used to forecast the condition of the assets in zedas®asset. The object-specific maintenance strategy (corrective, preventive, condition-oriented, predictive) can thus be implemented thanks to the intelligent software.
