Railway maintenance requires cost-effective solutions, as it is a very capital-intensive process for modern rail operators. Railway safety, punctuality, and passenger comfort depend on the railway track, rail maintenance, and railway safety equipment.

A railway maintenance management system looking into the planning and scheduling, and availability of the infrastructure system, as well as effective decision-making tools and models are essential for track and rail maintenance.
