How can Big Data Analytics help rail transportation?

Progressive railroads are capturing and integrating machine sensor and business data into their operations to gain critical business insights resulting in informed decisions. Certain aspects of the railway system are predictable--the crew, cars, schedule, etc. However, railroads are required to be more “data rich” organizations by tapping in to what used to be unconventional data from maintenance logs, sensors and GPS units. These new data sources can be stitched together to create new organizational and operational insights.

Below, we highlight some areas that can be significantly impacted by data analytics:

  • Assets Tracking & Management: Visibility solutions to meet regulatory requirements, extend asset life, optimize parts management, reduce rail calls and increase planned maintenance
  • Predictive Maintenance: Optimizing maintenance for rail assets is essential for delivering a safe, reliable, and profitable rail network
  • Yard Maintenance: Intelligent data solutions to provide visibility of all assets in the yard, including trains and railcars in the yard layout
  • Rail Car Analytics: Real-time analysis of driver & vehicle data collected by onboard sensors & fleet management software
