Root Cause Failure Analysis

Get to the root cause of faults and minimize time to repair by identifying underlying issues

  • Remove issues that cause waste in process or performanceRoot cause failure analysis aims to identify the fundamental reason for failure and remove them to stop recurring issues. There are often multiple causes involved in a failure event, so having a detailed record of asset conditions that prevailed at point of failure is key.
  • Leverage data analytics to weed out faultsLeveraging real-time and historic asset condition data alongside event logs, failure events can be replayed within a digital model, allowing engineering and maintenance managers to apply data analytics to identify anomalies that contribute to the event.
  • Identify the root cause rather than symptomatic resultsBy utilizing the data analytics capabilities of the Trimble rail asset lifecycle solution range, operators can rapidly identify and home in on the causes of failure, minimizing time to repair and improving their maintenance work practices. By pulling together data streams from multiple subsystems, components and sensors, Trimble solutions can provide significant insight into the causes of failure events.
