Rail Infrastructure Management (RIM)
Rail Infrastructure Management Services (RIM) are delivered to a range of private siding owners. These services provide strategies and systems to provide infrastructure which is fit-for-purpose and ensure risk is managed as per the requirements of rail safety legislation and for safe and efficient operation. It also focuses on maintenance, looks at longer-term issues and uses the latest technology to optimise life cycle costs and facilitate informed and timely decision making.
Through a logical and pragmatic approach, we formulate asset management and maintenance plans with a tailored strategy to meet your operational needs. Unbiased, independent advice from a handpicked team of experienced personnel is key to keeping rail assets in a fit-for-purpose condition at minimum cost.
Furthermore, Lycopodium’s own Maintenance Management System (LycoMMS) provides for the scheduling of all maintenance and management of defects. Used in the field by Lycopodium inspectors to certify the track and manage defects, the LycoMMS allows for better asset management by collating compliance in one system and provides a seamless assessment and validation process in real time.
Spare Parts Management
Effective spare parts management involves determining the optimum quantity of spares to be held on site. The objective of this process is to ensure that spare parts are only held as stock items if the cost of holding the spare is less than the cost of not holding the spare (in terms of consequence). The identified spare parts are catalogued and linked to the relevant equipment. This helps to ensure that the end user can easily identify the right part for the job.

- Optimisation of Stock Levels
- Bill of Materials (BoMs) Development
