Digital transformation of rolling stock maintenance includes using remote condition monitoring to collect real-time train information as well as using digital tools for rolling stock maintenance. Through digital transformation, metros expect to improve fleet availability, asset reliability, and maintenance efficiency.
This study brought together information from 30 metros, exploring the current condition of rolling stock maintenance and metros’ plans associated with digital transformation. Metros’ current and planned projects for digital transformation of rolling stock maintenance were summarised across five key areas: monitoring, maintenance depot systems, organisational structure, data management, and data security & performance monitoring.
To support metros along the digital transformation progress, the study also provided recommendations on the future road map for digital transformation of rolling stock maintenance. It laid out the key principles during different stages of digital transformation including planning, developing, testing, and implementing stages.
