Maintenance of railway infrastructure is expensive and it often connects to a large cost investment. The maintenance work, which is implemented in track possessions, can also cause inconvenience to train operators and passengers. Therefore, planning for maintenance and track possessions is important in terms of economy and rail operations. 

This PhD thesis presents two types of Phase-based Decision Support System, i.e. Functional Phase-Based Planning Approach and Process-Oriented Phase-Based Planning Approach. They are used for decision support for the planning of the railway infrastructure maintenance activities at the strategic level. The objective is to achieve better economy, as well as improve cost efficiency.
