Alstom and The CoSMo Co., a global technology company specializing in decision management, announce a strategic partnership to develop a new application to improve the global efficiency of a rail system.

This application is expected to set the global standard for energy efficiency and operations optimization. It will allow operators to consider the entirety of their rail operations, which has never been done before, as every part of a system is usually assessed separately. It will allow Alstom to design more efficient transport networks and to meet higher performance and service quality standards.

The application will be based on CoSMo’s software platform. The combination of Alstom’s expertise in rail operations and technologies and CoSMo’s experience in asset investment optimization and decision management will enable the application to deliver significant value for rail system owners and infrastructure managers worldwide.

“Thanks to its large number of urban integrated systems projects under execution worldwide, Alstom has a strong experience in optimizing transport solutions. The development to be carried out in partnership with CoSMo will allow us to reinforce our simulation competencies and optimize the lifecycle of our systems for the benefit of our customers,” said Eric Marie, VP, systems, at Alstom.
