The safety of trains is the basis of the efficient operation of the railway transport system, the optimal organization of passengers and cargo transportation. All organizational and technical activities in railway transport must meet the requirements of safe and uninterrupted train traffic. Traffic safety is ensured by the maintenance of all facilities, railway tracks, rolling stock, equipment and mechanisms, technical devices and communications. In order to ensure a given level of train safety, it is essential that the technical facilities and personnel have the appropriate safety level. Comprehensive management of reliability, risks, cost of life cycle in railways is a technology that improves the quality of services. This technology is characterized by several components, namely, factors that affect the reliability and safety of railway facilities, as well as the means of achieving reliability and safety; risk and complete safety; cost of life cycle. As part of the security provision, the Russian Railways regularly upgrades its fixed assets. These are projects related to safety, which are based on life safety aimed at ensuring the technological sustainability of the production process, improving traffic safety and maintaining the existing throughput capacity of transport infrastructure. The assessment of the influence of technical failures and defects on the performance and economic criteria of rail transport will enable objective management decisions to be made in the area of fixed assets renewal in order to improve traffic safety and to introduce measures to reduce the share of non-productive expenditures of structural units.
Key words: transport process / quality of transport services / technical equipment / transport infrastructure / non-productive expenditures / traffic safety
