OSIsoft offers a PI System for rail infrastructure that turns data into real-time actionable insights. The system collects operational data from rail equipment and operations to provide detailed information about the railway network.

The system collects high-fidelity data to allow users to maintain the railway system to prevent failures from occurring, saving costs and avoiding delays.

Real-time data for railway operational conditions

Rail organisations can make better use of operational streaming data to optimise railway operations.

The PI System gathers information, such as driver logs and fuel levels from rolling stock.
The PI System collects data on rail infrastructure maintenance and structural integrity.
SNCF Reseau deployed a maintenance strategy across their railway using the PI System to increase data visibility.
By making data accessible with the PI System, STM improved customer experience within their stations.
ArcelorMittal invested in a PI System that created a data supply-chain resulting in $120m of additional revenue.
Implementing the PI System allows better decision making for maintenance of the railway.

The PI System searches and analyses data, adds context by visualising the data in the railway network, and shares the results throughout the rail organisation.

The results are improved collaboration, innovation, digitisation, and ultimately a transformation in rail operations.

Instant notifications for railway maintenance

More than half of all train delays are caused by problems on the railway network.

Through common visualisation and analytic toolsets of the PI System, operators can detect and avoid disruptions caused by asset failures, resulting in improved rail services and availability.

Reduced operating costs for railways

Interrupted trains and limited capacity have a substantial impact on profits. The PI System allows organisations to control costs by focusing repair works to minimise downtime.

Visibility of the network allows rail organisations to identify where action needs to be taken. Conditions-based maintenance and state of good repair are initiatives that can be implemented with the PI System.

Monitoring solutions for rail lifecycle maintenance

The PI system can assess the condition of rail infrastructure to provide an alternative to calendar-based maintenance. It provides information for if a repair is needed or an investment in new assets is required.

Ultimately, this results in better equipment health and control over investments.

Software for managing railway incidents

Combining operational data with geospatial information results in the ability to assess incidents, events and routes in real-time. This is critical when managing assets across thousands of miles of track.

Advanced data calculation system

The PI System is comprised of the PI Server, PI System Connections, and PI System Tools. The PI Server is the foundation, gathering critical time-series data in a way that makes it organised, searchable, and easy-to-share.

Capabilities include advanced calculations of stored data, defined process events, batch comparison, notifications, system monitoring and management.

The PI System connections allow for the collection of data from diverse systems and include more than 450 interfaces.

Lastly, PI System Tools allow for access, visualisation and analysis of all collected data.

The result is one system that helps with impactful decision-making with data being provided to the right people when it is needed.

The PI System is trusted to process more than 1.5 billion data streams across approximately 19,000 sites and is embedded in critical infrastructure across 125 countries.

Sample Rail Architectures

OSIsoft offers rail infrastructure and rolling stock programmes that provide real-time actionable insights from collected data.

Railway Maintenance Data Software for SNCF Réseau

French national railway corporation Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Français (SNCF Réseau) has been using remote sensors and monitoring systems for more than a decade to deliver data on track equipment, motors and other assets in the field.
