- Valued Purpose: The purpose of the TrackAsset Program is to replace existing paper systems or to upgrade current processes to a map-based system. Paper systems are labor intensive requiring detailed review by management personnel. Not only is this time consuming but it presents the opportunity for important inspection results to be missed or overlooked. The TrackAsset Program can also maximize the inspectors time in the field by utilizing electronic tablets. With FRA codes built in, it speeds up the defect recording process for the inspector and minimizes input errors. With compliance and defect reports, the opportunities for important items to be missed or overlooked are significantly reduced.
- Strategic Value: This purchase will enhance Continuous Quality Improvement, State of Good Repair, Capital Planning, Service Delivery and Safety.
- Resources Required to Implement: Implementation of this system will require minimum resources. Railroad Software and a representative from the property could address the implementation within a few months.
- Financial Analysis: The cost savings of implementing this system will be realized in the amount of time that will be saved in Management review. This will allow Management to spend more time in the field, proactively plan maintenance, perform trend analysis and maximize capital planning. Industry experts agree that the ability to trend and plan work versus performing reactive maintenance will cost 2-4 times less. Reducing the likelihood of overlooked items reduces the costs that could be incurred from service disruptions and catastrophic events that would result in heavy financial impacts.
