LCE Life Cycle Engineering

expertisen Life Cycle Engineering & Asset Management

VCE developed an integral life-cycle model for asset management of various structures which can be adapted to the circumstances and special requirements of every single project.

The core of the model is the prediction of condition development of engineering structures and their components by means of degradation models developed in great detail which are calculated for every structure or component depending on the structure type, material, product, age, the documented maintenance state and the standards valid at the time of construction.

Life Cycle Engineering

Asset Management Infrastructure Roads/Railways

  • Forecasting of the remaining useful life
  • Simulation of necessary long-term structural interventions (maintenance/exchange)
  • Determination of necessary long-term budgets / optimization of the available financial resources / backlog analyses
  • Risk analyses – prioritization (within the scope of maintenance planning and the checking routine)
  • Analysis regarding the indirect life-cycle costs (non-availability / carbon footprint etc.)
  • Determination of amortization costs
  • Life-cycle analysis
  • Single facilities/routes/partial and total portfolios
  • Asset Management
  • Life Cycle Engineering
  • Structural health monitoring
