#6830 New Case Study - Sliding Track Optimization Project: Achieving the Fastest Ice on Earth

Sharon Lo – Wed 6 Jul

SkyFoundry is excited to share a new case study - Sliding Track Optimization Project: Achieving the Fastest Ice on Earth.

The Utah Olympic Park Slide Track was built for the bobsled, skeleton, and luge events at the 2002 Winter Olympics and since then has served as an Olympic training center, among other uses. However, in 2019 mechanical issues at the track caused the World Cup bobsled and skeleton event to be canceled.

This case study describes how SkyFoundry Partners ETC Group (now Bernhard) applied analytics as part of a project to improve Slide Track operating systems, bringing the facility back to “world-class levels” suitable for hosting its second Winter Olympics in 2030.
