An accurate maintenance strategy and implementation ensure the technical and economic optimisation of the railway track and its specific components over the entire life cycle. An analysis of current maintenance processes (actual practice) as well as studies and recommendations of optimal work processes and sequences (target practice) create an important basis for decision-making for our customers. By doing so, costs can be reduced through lower efforts, e.g. shorter track possessions or the use of efficient technology, but yields can also be increased through higher track availability. In addition, a structured and in this form optimised maintenance strategy helps to plan the use of the available financial resources in the best possible way.
Existing Maintenance Operation Evaluation EMOE
Existing maintenance processes are collected and presented in a process matrix with reference to the existing track systems. Maintenance intervals are recorded and compared with general implementations (best practices). All this serves as a basis for future optimisation programmes, e.g. process redesigns and predictive maintenance.
SWOT of Existing Maintenance Operations SEMO
Preparation of a detailed SWOT analysis based on existing maintenance processes. Based on the results, optimisation potentials for weaknesses are prepared in a bespoke manner. Through a detailed analysis of the strengths, weaker processes can be eliminated. With a medium and long-term perspective, various optimisation scenarios are devised and economically assessed by presenting and analysing the risks and opportunities.
Customised Maintenance Process Optimisation CMPO
Customer-specific maintenance processes are developed on the basis of the knowledge gained in the other stages. For optimisation, different evaluation and working technologies are compared and analysed. The optimal cost/performance ratio is identified and documented in detailed instructions for action.
Key Performance Indicator Development KPID
Development of key performance indicators (KPIs) to control and check the optimisation measures and to illustrate the progress. These key figures are presented digitally in a dashboard. They provide decision-makers with an overview of the state of the railway track in real time and enable related decisions to be made at short notice.
