Better investment and optimised infrastructure maintenance with digital support

The development of transport networks continues, with major projects all over the world. But tomorrow’s infrastructures are also those that exist today. Indeed, the transport networks we use every day can sometimes be several decades old, or even more.

The risks associated with poor asset management are real, and the associated challenges concern all mobility stakeholders, from the design of assets to their end of life.

Taking care of existing networks and implementing good asset management is therefore a prerequisite for the development of sustainable mobility, guaranteeing the safety of users and respecting the environment.

Did you know?

Contrary to popular belief, asset management does not begin when a line or piece of equipment is commissioned, but rather at the planning stage of their investment. The technical and/or financial choices made at the start of a project have repercussions over the next 10, 20, 30 or 40 years.

Whether it is a new line project or a renovation project, the challenge is to decide when, how much, and how to invest wisely in one’s network or in one’s fleet in order to have physical assets that meet the desired objectives in terms of performance, costs, and risks.


Our objectives:

  • Enable you to know your assets well (state of wear and tear, ageing, financial values, asset register, etc.), to help you make decisions and see the effects of their implementation;
  • Help you understand the causes of deterioration of your assets (use, time, environment, maintenance carried out, etc.) and their consequences on performance, costs and associated risks;
  • Advise you on investment and/or maintenance scenarios that meet the objectives and budgetary constraints of your network, translate the selected scenarios into operational terms, and ensure that the change is properly managed.


In a new 30-page illustrated booklet, SYSTRA explores all the facets of asset management – financial, operational, technological and organisational – in addition to its accounting dimension.

What is the definition of asset management? What is its purpose, its effects, its levers, its relationship with technological innovations, its ability to bring together the players?

We carry out analytical work to turn data into useful information for decision-making. We rely on tools as well as our technical expertise in engineering and maintenance of transport networks, on our ability to model the lifecycle of assets as well as their operational and financial impacts.

The infograph illustrates the 3 main stages of the Asset Management offer: 
(1) collect the data from the assets,
(2) analyse and decide on a plan of action based on the data collected
(3) implement the actions.

SYSTRA offers a comprehensive asset management service based on the expertise of its ISO 55001* certified staff and its maintenance engineering skills specialising in transport systems.

*ISO 55001 is an international standard for asset management.
