How can rail organizations transform their asset investment planning processes to enhance performance, increase connectivity, and transition to a sustainable future?

Our devolved regions need to be able to evaluate their own investment scenarios to make the best decisions possible, especially when increasingly difficult choices have to be made about where money can be spent.

Decision Analytics for Rail & Transit

Selecting, deploying, and managing capital investments is more challenging than ever before for rail and transit organizations. Replacing aging infrastructure, expanding coverage, and adopting new technologies are all imperative to deliver value today and into the future. At the same time, customer expectations are increasing and the deadline to meet sustainability targets is fast approaching. The challenge is balancing these competing objectives when there aren’t enough resources (money, people, track availability, etc.) to do it all. To navigate these challenges, organizations are rethinking their approach to asset investment planning.

How can you be confident you’re making the best decisions—the ones that maintain service levels today and create value for the future?

Copperleaf® helps organizations maximize the value delivered from their asset investment plans. By developing frameworks to evaluate all investments on equal footing, we enable our clients to make trade-offs between dissimilar projects and intervention options—from those designed to meet KPIs related to service availability and customer satisfaction, to those that increase capacity or improve employee productivity—and create executable plans that consider all business constraints and targets. The Copperleaf Decision Analytics Solution can help your organization forecast long-term sustainment needs across the diverse asset types that exist within your network, and develop optimal sustainment strategies to manage risk and meet your performance targets cost-effectively.

Proactively manage and mitigate operational risks

Many organizations in the rail industry struggle to forecast sustainment needs across diverse asset types, ranging from track and signals to tunnels and stations. Copperleaf can help your organization forecast and optimize asset performance for the next one to one hundred years by calculating the risk, cost, and value over time for each asset and optimal intervention dates.
