We help our clients keep their trains running, wind turbines turning when the wind is blowing, and fighter jets ready for action. Simply put, we help companies and government agencies find the optimal balance between capacity, performance, and cost.
Performance and cost – that is what it boils down to. In all contexts and projects where Systecon and Opus Suite are involved, the common denominator is the drive to increase cost-effectiveness. This is usually the case for a fleet of systems, for example, fighter jets, naval ships, rail vehicles, or wind turbines. We provide our clients with expertise, know-how, and the world’s most competent LCM analytics platform, making it possible to optimize the technical design, operations, and support solution, so that availability, sustainability, and flexibility can be achieved at the lowest possible cost.
Cost-effectiveness is key for any organization that operates, produces, or maintains advanced technical systems. In every industry and scenario, there are differences in how this is defined and monitored. For rail transport, this may involve balancing the requirements for punctuality and regularity against total costs. In the energy sector, it may involve minimizing disturbances to production while ensuring that required margins are kept. In the defense industry, the focus may be on maximizing readiness and availability at an affordable total cost of ownership.

Rail Transport & Systecon
Railway systems are characterized by large, long-term investments and fast-paced operational environments.
Whether it’s mass transit or freight, rail transport relies heavily on successful operations. Needless to say, is punctuality critical in a system where everything from train paths to dwell times at platforms, is carefully planned with the operation of the total network in mind. Being on time is a vital part of the service quality, and lack of punctuality can be costly, not only for the customers and the operator but also for the other operators sharing the railway infrastructure.
- Do I have enough vehicles to meet my timetable?
- Is the current depot capacity large enough?
- What holds my vehicles away from traffic?
- When should we carry out maintenance?
- What are the biggest cost drivers?
- What will it cost to run and maintain the new fleet?
What does it take to be on time, and how can it be achieved with cost efficiency?
It takes reliability and availability in rolling stock, infrastructure, and support systems, a great deal of planning, and cost awareness and control. Having the proper tools and methods in place to balance the RAM (Reliability Availability Maintainability) properties of your fleet and its support system against Life Cycle Cost (LCC) is key for long-term success.
