Search Fields Maintenance for Passenger Transport

Rolling Stock & Workshops

DB‘s long distance passenger transport division maintains the fleet of ICE-trains as well as the loco-operated Intercity cars. We want to improve the maintenance processes with fresh ideas, new technology and challenging concepts.

Data Analysis

We are gathering loads of data of all sorts every day – can you deal with different data sources, structures and interfaces to find patterns and produce insights?

Sensor Solutions

Some properties of our rolling assets remain undisclosed until today. Can you provide sensors, energy and data transfer to enrich our understanding of the technical status of the trains?

Workshop Flow

Inside and around our workshops, information, spare parts and even catering items need to be in continuous flow. Do you have a fresh approach to guiding, synchronizing, transporting….?

And more...

You have another product that can help us to improve our maintenance processes? We're happy to learn more.
