E365 Analytics® is a platform independent web application. The service is a powerful decision support for efficient and cost-effective maintenance for our customers. Using the service requires an internet connection. The service is tailored to each customer, and data is available in real time via computers, tablets and mobile phones.

Below you’ll find a description on how the service works and what results you can expect.

 


Data generation

Our service is based on the measurement and maintenance data already available to our customers. No investments required for new measuring stations or different kinds of sensors.


Data acquisition

The first step is to ensure access to all measurement and maintenance data, both historical data and real-time data. Our service gathers and manages data and information in different formats and structures.


Data integration

In this step, data is integrated from relevant sensors and protocols. Linkages and relationships between data and information are made. The information is structured to be analysed.


Data processing

Next comes validation, as all information should be linked to, for example, locomotives, wagons, axles, wheels, and components. Using advanced algorithms, we filter measurement errors and noise in all data and information.


Data analysis

Statistics and time series are analysed and compared with the maintenance and saftey levels. We forecast remaining useful life (RUL) and the need for preventive maintenance.

Maintenance operations are synchronized and optimized. Everything happens in real time and updates occur as new data comes in.


Data visualization

The data that appears in the analysis is visualized according to customer specification, what the customer wants to see and how it should be presented so that it best suits the organization’s needs. The visualization (of the results) occurs in real time, and means that the customer constantly has access to accurate (updated) information.


Decision making

As our customer, you have a powerful decision support tool for planning and control of maintenance related to remaining useful lifetime (RUL). You get a maintenance strategy that increases reliability, availability and profitability.


Expected results

-Increased reliability and availability

-Reduced capital expenditures (CAPEX)

-Decreased maintenance costs (OPEX)

E365 Analytics® helps Trafikverket to visualize maintenance needs

The Swedish Transport Administration's (Trafikverket) digitization program goes from “talking to walking”. The digitization program start to harvest from the benefits in Alanytics ®. The project will streamline the analysis of railway condition and give forecast on its degradation. The joint project between Trafikverket and eMaintenance365 is expected to provide a clearer status and forecast of how the railway assets are performing. With information from several different data sources, Analytics® will visualize and give actual status and prognostics on track assets.


The Swedish Transport Administration’s (Trafikverket) digitization program goes from “talking to walking”. The digitization program start to harvest from the benefits in Alanytics ®.

The joint project between Trafikverket and eMaintenance365 is expected to provide a clearer status and forecast of how the railway assets are performing. With information from several different data sources, Analytics® will visualize and give actual status and prognostics on track assets.

eMaintenance365’s powerful cloud based platform services are now fully tested by Trafikverket. The project focus on using our advanced tool Analytics® to visualize maintenance actions for rail infrastructure. As a result, support for decision making processes are provided for strategic, tactical and operational levels. The cloud service retrieves data from a variety of systems and then converts data into information and knowledge about the state of the railway track. With our unique advanced analyse windows, the different personnel categories can then visualize the need for maintenance actions and enalbles future predictions. Current status are generated and then visualized to the maintenance organization’s various personnel categories in strategic, tactical and operational levels.

At strategic level, it is about using actual data and facts in order to gain an actual condition and status of the assets. This information will be used to make decisions about the need for reinvestments and renewals or to extend track life with more maintenance. For example, execute more maintenance actions, using existing maintenance contractor, on the different track sections.

At the tactical level, Trafikverket wants to identify the need for tamping, grinding and welding, as early as possible in the decision making and planning processes. With better predictions and forecasts, you get more efficient and better planned track section maintenance decisions. This also provides lower maintenance cost of the track.

For the operational levels, the maintenance contractors, those who perform the actual work out in the track, the project hopes to improve the flow of information for work order generation. This gives the opportunity for the contractor to achieve better logistics, spare parts management and scheduling of slot times in track.

The project will last for 1.5 years and focus on track and lane maintenance.

LKAB and eMaintenance365 sign multiyear agreement.

The Luleå based company eMaintenance365 will deliver decision support for the maintenance of LKAB:s railway vehicles.


The Luleå based company eMaintenance365 will deliver decision support for the maintenance of LKAB:s railway vehicles. eMaintenance365 has developed an analytic tool, E365 Analytics®. By using condition data from the railway wagons and locomotives and through advanced analysis of these measurements E365 Analytics® provides proposals of preventive maintenance actions.

– We see potential in lowered capital- and maintenance costs as well as increased reliability in our deliveries. E365 Analytics® provides opportunity for us to improve our ability to work with condition based and preventative maintenance, says Anders Björnström, CEO at LKAB Malmtrafik AB.

LKAB and eMaintenance365 AB have during a time worked closely together to customize the services for LKAB:s requests and requirements.

-We are proud and happy that LKAB has chosen us as suppliers. LKAB is world leading when it comes to adopting new advanced technologies into their operation, and the type of decision support services that we deliver are quite unique, says Bengt Jonsson, CEO at eMaintenance365 AB.
