The HERMES project was proposed as a new information system and management of the railway maintenance that implied a leap forward in the following areas:
Modularity and scalability: HERMES had some modules that could be used separately or integrated in a single solution based on Cloud Computing.
Risk management: In order to establish a vehicle and infrastructure maintenance policy, the decisions risk must be known.
Economic optimization of the maintenance process through maintenance logistics modelling and the assessment of their costs.
Control and monitoring of maintenance tasks through a ticketing system of maintenance and incidents.
The developed platform will allow the implantation of a predictive maintenance strategy that will ensure the optimization of means and times, the reduction of the maintenance costs and a better control of the operation risks
