Transportation leaders are in a perpetual search for ways to save fuel costs, make schedules more predictable, and support field-based workers safely wherever they are. As vehicle-based technologies coupled with the Internet of things (IoT), SAP Plant Maintenance (PM) master data quality has never been more visible nor more critical. As an example, the railway industry is starting to mandate Positive Train Control (PTC), which relies on accurate equipment configuration data to inform automated train control systems that multiple trains are operating safely and harmoniously. The equipment data on a locomotive traveling at 60 miles per hour must be in synch with track signal and switch state data. Any confusion in the master data could result in catastrophic incidents.
