MANAGMENT & DEVELOPMENT
MAINTENANCE CONCEPTS (ECM2)
Generally speaking, a significant portion of the maintenance requirement and operational reliability of rolling equipment is determined by the design of a vehicle. The remaining portion can be influenced by the user and the maintainer. In some cases, it is useful to modify the maintenance concept (ECM Function 2). Shunter offers support in the maintenance development of maintenance concepts.
DEVELOPING MAINTENANCE CONCEPTS
Shunter has already developed maintenance concepts for many clients. When doing so, they bear in mind the desired availability and necessary reliability and safety. If desired, Shunter is able to convert prescribed maintenance plans into maintenance plans that fit within the train circulation. This is referred to as the ‘pit-stop model’.
OPTIMISING MAINTENANCE CONCEPTS
Has your equipment aged a bit? Has the deployment of your equipment changed over time? In that case, defined regulations and maintenance rules may be no longer completely appropriate, Perhaps timelines and actions should be modified. Based on maintenance and usage research, Shunter can redesign or optimise your maintenance plans. For the purpose of optimisation, they use historical figures, statistical techniques with usage information and the desired RAMS behaviour. In this way, they ensure increased availability and greater operational reliability, as a result of which your equipment is used in a more cost efficient manner.
MANAGMENT OF MAINTENANCE CONCEPTS
Another important part of the maintenance needs is the management. For this, Shunter has a specialised maintenance management system. For each locomotive, they can establish a breakdown structure with various numbered main components. These components are equipped with individual components. In that way, Shunter can easily monitor locomotives based on more than 50 terms. This puts the prompt planning of the costs, the extraction and the parts service within arm’s reach.
