Customer: Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) Passenger Division, Switzerland

Project tasks

  • Solution development
  • Solution assessment
  • Project management

Our Approach

PROSE worked with responsible persons within SBB and other external planners to develop a wide range of possible solutions. On the one hand, solutions for the Basel site were developed, which have been technically tested and already take the site’s production capacities into account. On the other hand, the possibility of outsourcing the work to external service providers was examined due to the challenges in Basel. All solutions were examined in detail, including, for example, the transport of the bogies and vehicle relocations.

Customer benefit

SBB received an overview of 17 solution versions, including an opportunity/risk assessment. Some of these were analysed more thoroughly, including an initial profitability calculation, which forms the basis for the decision on how to proceed
