Abstract

The article concerns the application of LCC (Life Cycle Cost) life cycle analysis as a method of assessing the effectiveness of investments in rail transport. On the basis of general guidelines contained in professional literature and international standards, including PN-EN 60300-3-3:2017-07, the LCC calculation method for rail transport is presented. This method can be used to assess the effectiveness of various variants of purchasing new vehicles, as well as to compare the costs of their modernization.
