Asset Management Systems for the Railway Industry
ZNAPZ provides, manages and optimises IBM’s Maximo Asset Management System, which is a comprehensive solution for managing physical assets on a common platform.
The system allows organisations to share and enforce best practices, maintenance management, inventory, personnel and resources.
ISO-compliant asset management for railway companies
ZNAPZ’s asset management solution helps clients to manage new investments and maintain existing assets, while creating the highest value for their customers. The company offers a sophisticated information system that assists clients with the decision-making process.
The company’s solution complies with the new ISO 55000 standard for asset management, which outlines the significance of aligning asset plans with a strategic business plan, followed by lifetime cost control, risk and value management in an environment of continuous improvement.
Asset tracking and monitoring solutions
ZNAPZ helps railway companies to achieve the necessary control to more efficiently track and manage their assets and location data throughout the asset lifecycle.
The Maximo Asset Management System provides customers with high-quality data, which enables them to make better fact-based decisions, and results in optimal ease of use and reduced cost of ownership.
From a technical perspective, ZNAPZ’s solutions stand for high-performance, adaptability and user-friendliness from a business perspective. With its deep technical Maximo knowledge, business expertise and maintenance background, ZNAPZ is uniquely qualified to help rail companies to maximise the value of their assets.
Performance and investment optimisation
In the area of asset performance management, IBM has developed a revolutionary solution supporting the requirements of asset health and risks.
The Maximo Asset Health Insight solution is fully integrated with the Maximo asset management system. This will support organisations to focus on the 80% of the random failures that occur, and enable companies to implement condition-based maintenance.
ZNAPZ is also developing a solution in asset investment optimisation. The company is collaborating with several rail organisations to launch the Maximo Asset Intervention Optimization module, which help organisations to make optimised decisions in a restricted environment, based on their value framework. Together with IBM’s Watson technology, this will be state-of-the-art, nonproprietary solution, using the latest in information technology.
Rail asset maintenance
Railway companies have strived for years to improve their business, both from an internal drive for optimisation and external cost, and external pressures such as safety, reliability and customer satisfaction. With these developments, rail asset and maintenance management is becoming increasingly important.
With ZNAPZ’s technology, maintenance departments can work to further optimise their performance, reduce cost and risk, as well as improve availability of the assets when needed. The company’s asset management solution enhances maintenance department’s knowledge of asset health and priorisation of activities. With the right IT tools, the department can easily identify the quality of its asset data, knowing where to emphasise its activities in this area.
