Progress Rail: PR Uptime

Progress Rail's PR Uptime provides actionable insight from data that customers have stored and kept connected, helping railroads make determinations to ensure fleet performance. On the track, PR Uptime allows railroads to make proactive mission decisions based off predictive alerts, and to reduce service delays caused by mission failure. By enabling planned maintenance to replace unscheduled repairs, locomotives can generate more revenue at lower cost, the company says.
In the shop, PR Uptime’s analytics helps troubleshoot locomotives the first time they enter, leading to fewer repeat maintenance visits and fewer unnecessary shop visits, according to the company. The target repair and troubleshooting guides from PR Uptime’s analytics focus the repair work to the source of the problem, decreasing shop cycle times. User feedback and repair closeouts facilitate machine learning, allowing PR Uptime’s analytics to continuously improve. All of this leads to improved availability of locomotives. In the yard, PR Uptime’s predictive analytics provides a reliability index (health score) for locomotives and fleets to help railroads build better trains in less time and with less effort. Additionally, the platform helps users track locomotives in the yard and creates better situational awareness across the organization using things like geo-fencing alerts, the company says.
