Manufacturers of railroad equipment have expanded their role beyond design and build to include operations and maintenance. Their primary goal of achieving high reliability and availability is one that they do not take lightly. Achieving this goal requires operators to effectively maintain not only the moving assets like locomotives and passenger rail cars, linear assets such as railways, but also facility assets which include maintenance depots and passenger stations. These operators implement Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solutions, and work with industry experts to obtain the most value from these implementations.
Aquitas Solutions understands the rail industry, and knows how to leverage Maximo to increase operational value. Through the Maximo implementation process, our transportation industry experts can help you increase profits by streamlining existing maintenance processes, and efficiently maintaining your diverse portfolio of assets including moving, linear and facilities.
