    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Life-cycle cost (LCC) analysis is an assessment technique used to evaluate costs incurred during the life-cycle of&lt;br&gt;
a system to help in long term decision making. In railway and road transport infrastructures, costs are subject to&lt;br&gt;
numerous uncertainties associated to the operation and maintenance phase. By integrating in the LCC the&lt;br&gt;
stochastic nature of failure using Reliability, Maintainability, Availability and Safety (RAMS) analyses,&lt;br&gt;
maintenance costs can be more reliably estimated. This paper presents an innovative approach for a combined&lt;br&gt;
RAMS&amp;amp;LCC methodology for linear transport infrastructures which has been developed under the H2020&lt;br&gt;
project INFRALERT. Results of the application of such methodology in two real use cases are shown, one for&lt;br&gt;
rail and another one for road. The use cases show how the approach is implemented in practice.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
