Transnet, South Africa`s national provider of rail transport, has a rail network that consists of approximately 21,000 km of track. The maintenance of its Infrastructure Assets is a critical element to ensure a reliable and affordable rail logistics operation. The rail infrastructure is a complex system with a vast number of maintainable items that are distributed over an extended geographic area. The optimal identification of maintenance work and allocation of maintenance budget can be realised through advanced conditional assessment and performance analysis. This can only be achieved by integrating various data sources, maintaining data relationships when asset configuration changes occur and analysing data in a structured and effective manner.
A number of challenges exist in implementing an asset performance analysis, work identification and planning system. In the rail infrastructure environment these are:
