Rail maintenance has always been a significant cost driver, the “invisible” guarantee for reliability and quality of service. Assets depreciate over time and if not maintained, they will worsen rail services, diminish quality, drive away customers and ultimately deteriorate 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 programme 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 are 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 rail 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 programme ever more efficient.
