STW / ProRail funds FMT research on Smart Railroad Maintenance

STW / ProRail have granted the research proposal by Marielle Stoelinga on Smart Railroad Maintenance.

Key idea is to boost the modeling and analytical techniques for fault trees. Fault trees are a dominant model for risk management of infrastructures and other assets, but cannot yet cope with a pressing aspect, namely maintenance. 

In previous projects, we have fruitfully deployed model checking techniques for fault tree analysis, and we expect similar advantages in the domain of maintenance.
