Delivering the highest value from assets in rail

Aging infrastructure, concerns about carbon emissions, and increased competition are transforming the way rail organizations allocate capital. Integrated planning and value-based decision making equip organizations with the insights and agility to deliver capital plans that provide the highest return on investment to all stakeholders. Understanding how all projects impact performance measures—replacing infrastructure, adding capacity, safety improvements, or decarbonization initiatives—enable rail organizations to find the most cost-effective way to achieve strategic goals on schedule.

Having a common value framework throughout the business allows us to make sure that we’re making the best decisions for the money that we have.”

We were looking for an asset investment planning solution that would enable us to consolidate all our existing models on a single platform and would also support our ambitious plans for their further development. We also wanted a solution that would be accessible to our devolved regional businesses, so that they can analyze their own investment scenarios and optimize their plans in support of Network Rail’s commitment to putting passengers first.”
