Industry Perspectives

"We have implemented technology over the years which hasn't realised its full potential. The technology is not built around the way in which we organise ourselves as a business or the way in which we generally operate. So, do you change the organisation to match the technology that's being provided? Or do you want the technology that aligns with the way in which you operate as a business? How do you get something that's fully embedded fundamentally working well for you? I think that's quite a difficult piece.”

London Regional Metro Operator

 

“The biggest challenge for the future is to deliver a preventive maintenance strategy in rolling stock operations. That's only possible with pattern recognition, big data and analytics that come from the train. If we're able acquire data over a longer period of time we will be able to optimise our maintenance plan significantly to save costs.  It's very difficult to do this without data and you need to be very brave to take decisions, for example to skip some scheduled replacement of an element without enough data.”

Program Manager New Rolling Stock, National Passenger Operator, Belgium

“People have been talking about predictive maintenance for years. It seems that there are very few successful cases that have been showcased in the industry. I think it would be great to discuss what we have done so far in this area and what are the pain points today, where and how the industry has been able to overcome those pain points to be successful in the predictive maintenance approach.”

“What would be ideal is to have any real-world scenario involving mid-term data (one year or something along those lines). For example, monitoring of wheel profile across a subway line. I would also like to hear a real-use case: not only around getting data, but also the process and history of that activity.”

“We need to ask the question: why do we do maintenance? Are we over maintaining? I believe a lot of the time we do a lot of maintenance that makes little difference. I think root cause analysis is key. Failure mode analysis is not well practiced by many operators and would allow to see which are your high-risk components, to reduce back-end cost including parts and materials.”

Head Of Innovative Track Measurement Systems, German Rail Infrastructure Owner

“Time-based and cycle-based are well known ways to do maintenance. But today we have technologies that help us learn more about the real-time condition of a system and its components, so we should take advantage of this and try to initiate a paradigm shift into a proactive management of maintenance. How do achieve that paradigm shift? We started with introducing RCM in the Rolling Stock domain, and then moved over to other infrastructure assets, real estate assets, to switches for electricity or elevators. ”
