*iTWO is the core solution of MTWO Cloud
The Deutsche Bahn Group is an international provider of mobility and logistics services and operates worldwide in over 130 countries. More than 300,000 employees work every day to ensure efficient mobility and the associated transport networks for more than 12 million customers daily in rail passenger transport. The DB Group has been adopting new environmental technologies and increasingly offering green products to meet the even more demanding targets of energy efficiency.
TWO and Deutsche Bahn started the partnership in 2014. Back then DB was looking for a new enterprise project management solution because their old system could not fit the needs of today’s market any more. Further than that, the Group wanted to step up. Subject of the tender was brought up in order to provide a standard software for planning and controlling of infrastructure projects of the DB Group. The Group issued a European-wide tender in 2014 and launched partnership with RIB iTWO. It’s a big decision for a company like Deutsche Bahn to change a running system because they had about 50,000 projects up and running on a daily basis. The partnership was followed right away by DB’s transformation journey: the transferring of existing DB AG project data, processing an existing computer-based training and implementation and realization of training measure for employees, integrating iTWO into the IT system of Deutsche Bahn etc.
By 2016 the Group has already transferred more than 40,000 projects from the old world into the new world and “everything’s running, nothing stops and nobody heard about anything wrong. Everything works very well.” according to Mr. Mathias Pott-Stahmeyer, Program Manager of DB.
The infrastructure companies of DB work together on their goals to implement BIM as planning standard for shared goals:
DB changed the old working procedure into 5D BIM with iTWO.
DB has company-wide Implementation of iTWO on more than 50,000 projects in 2015 – 2016. Through iTWO 5D, the company could achieve cost security before tender, enhance planning quality and transfer the defined data in operation and maintenance. “In the end, what we see is all of our goals were met: we met the cost, we got the quality that we wanted and we got the support of public participation.” Stahmeyer comments, “I think 5D works, 5D works for Deutsche Bahn and we don’t want to stop at 5D.”
