Prognoz improves the forecasting of maintenance costs for Banedanmark

29 April 2016

As a part of our collaboration with Banedanmark, Prognoz has enhanced the Bridge Analysis Model (BAM) for analyzing the condition of rail bridges.

Developed for Banedanmark in 2012, the model now takes into account a larger number of bridge parts and their relationships in terms of rail bridge maintenance, repair, and replacement activities.

The enhanced model improves the efficiency of forecasting the cost of maintenance and repair activities.
