Smart Fleet Maintenance & Procurement 360 Summit

#SFM360 #RSP360
8th & 9th October 2024, London

Navigating the Future of Fleet Performance: Integration, Innovation, and Intelligence in Rolling Stock Asset Management

Future Procurement Strategies, Uniting Digitalization and Automation, Driving Insights from Train Data, Managing Third Party Maintenance Relationships and Delivering End to End Digital Implementations to Enhance Maintenance

Smart Fleet Maintenance & Procurement Summit 360, research driven collaborative platform that embodies the industries drive towards modernization with a sharp focus on harnessing data, enhancing collaboration, and fostering a culture of innovation to enhance operational performance in fleet maintenance. Discussions pivot around the urgent need for digitalization in rail, stressing the importance of data sharing and adopting a unified asset management approach for advancing maintenance strategies.

The summit uncovers the necessity of reliable financing models for procuring future rolling stock, financing optimization of current maintenance facilities, cultural shifts needed to address skill shortages, digitalization and integration challenges and the symbiosis between operators and manufacturers for seamless new fleet introductions and successfully managing third-party maintenance agreements.

Emphasizing the transformative potential of a data-driven approach to improve the success of digital integration projects in rail, focusing on future maintenance strategies to extend component life cycles, executing end to end digital implementations related to maintenance and the strategic use of current data streams in legacy systems to increase operational efficiency, optimize reliability, availability and reduce the cost of ownership of operating rolling stock.

Highlighting real world experiences from UK, Europe & Asia Pacific, this year’s qualitative insights reflect a collective desire within the rail industry to address the several overarching challenges and focal points within the realm of fleet procurement and maintenance.
