Rail networks around the world are becoming more congested, with rising passenger numbers and an increasing demand for rail freight services. This is placing pressure on infrastructure managers to deliver more efficient and effective track maintenance, therefore ensuring rail services remain operational and growing demands are met.
With new technology and innovative solutions available to the industry, the future performance improvements of our railways will depend on a variety of elements, and this webinar will explore how stakeholders manage their approach to track maintenance, their willingness to adopt innovative solutions and invest in the latest technology, and their understanding of the importance of delivering a data-driven railway.
KEY LEARNING POINTS OF THE WEBINAR:
Tim Flower, Professional Head of Maintenance, Network Rail
Tim joined the rail industry in 2001, working on several asset and maintenance data roles before moving on to managing on-track machine planning and maintenance performance. In 2009, Tim moved into Network Operations Programmes, delivering the Maintenance Effectiveness Programme, including Plain Line Pattern Recognition, and leading on resolution national maintenance issues. Tim was appointed as Professional Head of Maintenance in July 2016 and, in July 2017, took on the lead engineering role for the Network Rail Intelligent Infrastructure Programme.
Ivan Vidovic, Research Associate, Institute of Railway Engineering and Transport Economy, Graz University of Technology
Ivan studied Civil Engineering Sciences with Environment and Construction Management and graduated in 2016. In his research, he examines the potential of fibre optic sensing in railway asset management.
Matthias Landgraf, Senior Scientist, Institute of Railway Engineering and Transport Economy, Graz University of Technology
Matthias is a graduate of Graz University of Technology, where he composed his PHD-Thesis on asset management within railway infrastructure. Since 2016, he has been a Senior Scientist at the Institute. He focuses on railway infrastructure management comprising a technical, ecological and economic point of view.
