Copperleaf in Rail: Next Stop, Stockholm!

September 6, 2022 Jess Carney Shaw

The Scandinavian Rail Optimisation conference, coming up 9 November in Stockholm, will provide an exciting opportunity for rail experts from the Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, and Baltic Railways to discuss how they are leveraging digital technologies to increase capacity, improve reliability, enhance availability, and drive down maintenance costs. 

Our resident rail expert, Charles Hull, will present a case study about our ongoing work with Network Rail as well as how the Copperleaf® Decision Analytics Solution can help rail and transit companies:

  • Manage risk across their asset base
  • Improve network performance 
  • Meet sustainability targets
  • Increase organisational agility 
Making the Highest-value Asset Investment Decisions at Network Rail

Network Rail owns and manages one of the largest railways in Europe. This includes a diverse portfolio of assets across a range of engineering types, such as over 31,000 km of track, more than 2,500 stations, 20,000 structures, and 1,600 signalling systems.

Like most railway companies, Network Rail faces asset management challenges brought on by factors like changing customer demand, concerns about carbon emissions, and ageing infrastructure.

To maximise investment effectiveness across its asset base, Network Rail partnered with Copperleaf to streamline its asset management processes by integrating its existing lifecycle cost models into a single system. The solution allows the company to make outcome-based decisions on the future of the network—across the entire asset lifecycle and centred around the organisation’s key strategic objectives.
