Monitoring for maintenance, quality assurance and optimization

The essential function of a monitoring system is the observation and fast identification & elimination of system and/or component problems and malfunctions.

However, quality assurance and the associated improvement/optimization of functioning processes, is also a major focus of monitoring. Automatic checks provide a quick overview of the status or errors on the systems. This allows both system processes and internal operating procedures to be better understood and optimized in a targeted manner. Early error identification and continuous optimization, ensure smooth live operation and low maintenance & servicing costs, for both transport companies and system operators.
