The HERMES project is proposed as a new information system and management of the railway maintenance that implies a leap forward in the following areas:
- Modularity and scalability: HERMES will have some modules that can 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.
