Rail control systems constitute a small, yet important, part of infrastructure investments. If the development is not managed properly, the result can be major project delays and cost overruns. A well-functioning signalling system is essential for the rider experience in a passenger network and the overall capacity of the system.
It is clear, based on industry reports and feedback from our clients and partners, that infrastructure managers benefits of more control over their rail control projects. It is essential in order to decrease these risks and to make sure that the systems live up to their expectations.
More control signifies a better ability to keep critical time schedules, lower procurement costs, and a better customer experience. With reduced dependency on a single supplier, the cost of maintenance also decreases and thereby the lifecycle cost of the system. The first step towards increased control is understanding what you need and to be able to communicate this with the supply chain.
