Proscient enables confidence that plans will be executed effectively and efficiently. And provides more certainty to budgeting and investment planning.
“The deferral of renewals work may affect the sustainability of the network in the medium and long term, and increase costs in the medium and long term.”

For budget holders and rail infrastructure managers, cost efficiency is an important Key Performance Indicator. As organisations try to reduce costs in both OMR (Operations, Maintenance and renewals) and Projects, it is where these departments spend most money that Proscient provides best support. Maximising the delivery of work during possession and traffic outages is the key effectiveness capability that will drive costs down.
Possessions are singularly important in maintaining and improving reliability in the railway. However, they are plagued by chaotic activity management, constantly changing based on operational reality. The Proscient platform is designed to integrate with your Maintenance Management system, allowing for maintenance campaigns to be operationally planned.
Using three screens, both OMR and Projects now have a single picture of the operational reality. Improvements in coordination result in more realistic and more deliverable plans, improved communication between simultaneous operations earlier and on the day of execution, fewer work cancellations, and overall improved plan stability.
One Proscient rail customer has already seen a dramatic decrease in late plan cancellations. They are now able to plan work earlier, avoiding conflicts much further out, deliver more planned work than ever before. Plan stability lets them optimise costs and reduce losses caused by cancelled or deferred maintenance.

Now we can understand our operational risk, see how it impacts the operational reality and make decisions with confidence.
Now we can prioritise our 14/28/90-day plans to manage risk and optimise production.
Incorporating my shift diary in Proscient gives me a complete picture of scheduled activity, risk and Ops resource in my part of the plant.
I can now use Proscient’s visualisation to actively manage workload, risk and resources in real time.
Process Safety Management is now connected to its impact on operations – so everyone can make better operational decisions.
Better operational decisions are creating measurable efficiencies – and improving my leading risk indicators.
"Process safety became part of the vernacular of the energy business… However, it has also led to a reduction in responsibility and understanding of operational risk by operations staff… In other words, operational risk has come to mean process safety and has been separated from operational performance as a whole, with the former managed by safety professionals and the latter by operational professionals."
