Rail industry benefits

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 13 agosto 2009

Zeist, the Netherlands, The autonomisation of the railway industry, the related enhanced commercialisation and the separation of infrastructure and operations ask for new criteria in optimal life cycle management. Good management of the total life cycle costs of rail assets is a key aspect in this. Challenges such as calculations in which changing circumstances and future expenses need to be taken into account, still need to be overcome. This greatly influences the determination of prices in for example tendering procedures of rolling stock. Rules, interoperability and feasibility of technological developments are also among the issues at stake. However, optimal life cycle management offers remarkable opportunities and provides competitive advantages. This will all be discussed on 8 December 2009 during the international Life Cycle Management conference. The conference will take place in Congress centre Amstelveen in the Netherlands and is being organised by Europoint Rail Technology Conferences & Exhibitions.The Life Cycle Management conference starts with a benchmarking forum, after which the need and necessity for cross border regulations will be illustrated from different perspectives. The conference programme includes contributions from politics, science and industry. In the afternoon the following issues will be discussed via interactive seminars:- Rail concessions and asset/life cycle management: winning contracts- Management accounting & LCM- The interaction between infrastructure and rolling stock: symbiosis or parasitism?-  The balance between technology and cost efficiency The organisers expect these issues to lead to a successful interaction between speakers and delegates. The exchange of viewpoints will result in innovative solutions and tangible actions that will lead to a cost effective and manageable integral method of Life Cycle Management in the rail industry.
