About

UITP Academy is launching the 2nd edition of the training program on Rail Operation and Maintenance between 9-11 October 2024 with our Regional Training Center, New Jersey Transit.

Maintenance has always been a significant cost driver, the “invisible” guarantee for reliability and quality of service. Assets deteriorate over time and if you do not maintain, you will deteriorate your service, loose quality, loose customers and in the end lose your assets. From the principles of asset management and maintenance to a detailed understanding of the maintenance of various assets, and from lifecycle costs and planning to obsolescence management, this training program will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the topic through a unique methodological approach illustrated by international best practice and on-the-ground operational experience.

Nevertheless, times are also changing in this area and technology is evolving maintenance organisation can be shifted from preventive based on time or intervals to predictive based on real maintenance needs and real conditions of equipment. Modern smart equipment is bringing about a paradigm shift through their ability to inform precisely about assets’ technical status in real time. Condition-based maintenance can increase cost efficiency but requires a profound reshaping of maintenance organisation and processes. Furthermore, real-time data, big data and digitalisation are improving the way maintenance can be predicted and optimised.

Hence beyond providing you with the classic, yet essential maintenance and asset management principles and best practice, this course will also give you the opportunity to discuss the implications of new technologies and the use of industry-like measures to make your training program ever more efficient.
