- June 10: A data-driven business
Creating value and cutural transformation in digitalitalisation disruptionSummary of the speech for Summit website (max. 900 characters incl. spaces)
The use of mass information as a basic element for solving problems started in TMB in 2006-2009 with the monitoring of switch points drives.
Applying an artificial intelligence algorithm a system that anticipates failures in these systems has been reached.
The reliability of that facility has been doubled, the time without running of this facility has decreased by 7.5 times and the expenses have been also reduced by 2.45 times.
But the best of this initiative is not a concrete result, but the creation of a new cultural transformation in our company that has facilitated a whole series of projects which are spreading throughout the whole company.
We are working on predicting the demand to be able, when possible, to adapt the supply to it and as well we are adapting the company to the new digital structure of the mobility business through a cultural change.
