The company has a comprehensive overview of the system and takes a practical approach, creating the conditions for working interaction between operation, vehicle engineering and infrastructure, the quality of which is crucial to DB's commercial success and competitiveness. DB Systemtechnik provides the Group with integrated, holistic solutions at the interface between transport and infrastructure, with the objective of smooth, cost-effective railway operation.

DB Systemtechnik operates as two business segments:
- Engineering services
The engineering services business segment covers all the work of DB Systemtechnik in which we can make a positive contribution throughout the entire value-added chain with our specialist railway engineering expertise, for both various internal DB customers and external customers in the railway industry.
- Approval management, tests and certification
Engineering tests and trials make an important contribution to ensuring the safe, reliable and economical use of the technical systems deployed in today’s railway systems. The approval of technical systems is a highly complex task that is shaped primarily by increasingly globalised deployment of rolling stock, and parallel national and European regulations.
