BLS wants to optimise the management of the more than 719 km of overhead contact lines with a digital solution in terms of lifecycle management. Based on actual measured values and prognosis models, the replacement date is to be delayed. Thus the potential of the contact wires will be better exploited. But first the feasibility and effective benefit of such a solution had to be verified.
In order to obtain results as quickly as possible, BLS relied on an exploratory approach. Agile and flexible, yet structured, a solution was worked out and tested. Thus BLS achieved the desired insights and the confirmation that the Data Analytics solution is operationally feasible and achieves the desired business values in just two months.
In the video, Adrian Mäder tells how they quickly achieved results in an interdisciplinary team, about the agility in working with ipt and the advantages of the exploratory approach.
