This project is defined to develop a new asset and risk management methodology that is able to deal with multiple involved parties so as to guarantee the long-term objectives of railways for maintaining traffic safety and network availability in a cost-effective way. In broadly speaking, the project includes new methods for:
(1) service contracting that aim at influencing or aligning the contractors’ objectives and their way of operating with the long-term objectives of railways,
(2) coordinated planning of maintenance and operations,
(3) Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for optimal whole system performance.
Ali Jamshidi has been working, specifically, on the last task which is design of the KPIs in order to improve overall performance of the Dutch railway network.
