DB and Siemens launched pilot to support predictive maintenance

Prediction is a useful tool for engineers and transportation companies. Rolling stock maintenance is one of the most important pillars in railways. Good fleet maintenance helps a railway company to improve the fleet availability and reduce problems in services and supply of goods.



Siemens and DB join their forces to produce intelligent algorithms and predictive analytics so to optimize fleet availability. In a 12-month pilot project a Class 407 Velaro D high speed train fleet is going to be tested.


Data will be received from DB fleet and data will be analysed from SIEMENS. Jochen Eickholt believes that this study is going to improve maintenance work.
