Rail and Road programmes are usually large, complex, multi-disciplined, often inter-related projects spanning the whole life-cycle covering design build and subsequent maintenance.

The challenge is for management teams to easily see all aspects of these projects throughout the life cycle. RMS is a powerful, flexible, and fully integrated resource management system that provides both visibility and confirmation that the work being carried out is meeting the necessary health and safety and procedural requirements.

RMS is a real-time web-based software application, delivering programme management visibility, spanning all disciplines, required work activities and tasks. It enables an organisation to view its engineering services progression through design, planning, installation/construction through to testing, commissioning and on-going maintenance.

RMS is highly configurable supporting both project and maintenance environments.
In a project environment it can be configured to support programme stage-gates, possession management, work site activities and provide management staff with dashboard alerts on key activities (red, amber, green).

In a maintenance environment it provides workbank management and supports both cyclical and unplanned tasks. In both environments, all staff can be automatically notified of required actions and activities to be undertaken at specific time periods.

RMS Product Information

RMS is a web based tool for pre-defined project and maintenance delivery methodologies across multi-disciplines. It is designed for organisations requiring a common view of Rail or Highway infrastructure projects that may have been created in tools such as Microsoft project or P3e/P6.
The key benefits are:

• Provides a holistic view of all your projects, maintenance work banks and resources.
• Extensive graphical interfaces providing visual identification of site locations and detailed information.
• Incorporates data into one overall workflow automatically notifying staff of required actions and activities when required.
• Allows allocation and tracking of labour resource to safely complete works.
• Monitors progress of work by critical resource, captures corrective actions, delay reasons and responsibilities.
• Multiple linked site plans showing all activities and tasks required by allocated workforce.
• Creates requirements and orders for key resources.
• Provides reporting tools for KPIs, stage gates and management reporting with automatic alerts to managers and key staff.
• Supports both cyclical and unplanned maintenance tasks .
• Supports and integrates risk management.

Where there are concurrent projects, multiple suppliers and competing resources, RMS highlights the critical paths and resource conflicts.

Additionally, RMS can take data feeds from different project resources, for example Primavera, Microsoft Project, or Microsoft Excel programmes into common templates. RMS can be configured to be viewed by the client as well as any sub contractors that may be required for the duration of any project.
