  • InteGRail will enable information to be shared within the Railway World to enable optimisation of decision making for improved performance.
  • It will identify the information that is needed to be shared (SP2)
  • It will ensure that the right information can be obtained (SP3A)
  • It will identify ways of using the information more effectively for maintenance optimisation (SP3B)
  • It will identify ways of combining and using information effectively for management requirements (SP3C)
  • It will ensure that the information can be transmitted effectively to the decision makers (SP3D)
  • It will demonstrate that creating the right information and sharing it will enable performance improvement (SP4)
  • InteGRail will NOT replace existing systems. It will be used in conjunction with existing systems.

As standardisation proposals are a primary goal, they will be given high priority according to the following strategy:
1) prepare complete and detailed specifications as working documents, involving all major actors and looking for maximum consensus
2) develop a significant working prototype system
3) test and validate the prototype in as much as possible close to real life conditions
4) incorporate validation feedback into specifications and hand them over to an appropriate standardisation body.
