Summary

The HERMES project is proposed as a new railway maintenance information and management system that represents a leap in the following areas:

  • Modularity and scalability: HERMES will have several modules that can be used separately or integrated in a single solution based on Cloud Computing.

  • Risk management: to establish a vehicle and infrastructure maintenance policy, it is necessary to know the risk involved in the decisions.

  • Economic optimization of the maintenance process by modeling the logistics of maintenance tasks and their cost.

  • Control and monitoring of maintenance tasks through a ticketing system for maintenance operations and incidents.

Ceit's role in the project

Ceit-IK4 technology center, will lead the development of infrastructure and vehicle degradation models (where the participation of VIAS will be necessary), and operational risk models (where the participation of FGC will be essential). Likewise, it will actively participate in the development of modules that allow data processing (in collaboration with INYCOM). This role fits perfectly with Ceit's experience and type of organization.
