Digital workshop management

Fully comprehensive workshop management in Luxembourg

Securing the mobility of tomorrow, that is the goal of the CFL Group. To achieve this, all processes have to run smoothly – including the workshop processes. A digital, fully comprehensive workshop management system provides a remedy: and that’s where the BMM (BOOM MAINTENANCE MANAGER) comes in. From planning to operative execution and complete documentation, everything will be controlled in future by the BMM.

Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois, in short CFL, is the national railway company of Luxembourg. It is responsible for the operation, maintenance and development of the infrastructure of the Luxembourg national rail network. The company is divided into three divisions: passenger transport, freight transport and infrastructure management. Each year, it carries more than 25 million passengers and around 2,440 million tonne-kilometres of goods.

The BMM was integrated as a mobile workshop solution into the existing IT system landscape of CFL in order to optimize planning processes on the one hand and to reduce unnecessary downtimes and unnecessary shunting movements on the other. Therefore, the functional scope of the BMM includes the following features:

  • Personnel administration
  • Management of the workshop infrastructure
  • ECM compliant vehicle documentation
  • Fault management
  • Maintenance and repair of vehicles
  • Planning support

Safety and quality

The BMM makes a significant contribution to workshop planning. It is used to allocate the required resources to the individual orders. This ensures that the activities to be carried out on the vehicle are only carried out by qualified personnel and that these employees have the appropriate tools and work space at their disposal. By using the BMM, it is always traceable who carried out which maintenance work on the vehicle and which tools were used for doing so. In addition, the documentation of the activities is carried out by the workshop personnel directly on the vehicle, thus ensuring complete documentation. The BMM thus supports the establishment of safety and quality as standard at CFL.

Effectiveness and Efficiency

A particular added value provided by the BMM is the achieved transparency. The workshop monitor in the BMM clearly shows the current and upcoming activities, as well as the availability of resources. With this information an optimal workshop utilization is made possible. This also shows a positive effect on the lead times from planning to completion.

„The Boom Maintenance Manager makes workshop activities at CFL much easier: From resource planning to maintenance work, our operational processes are thus accelerated and optimized,” says Mr. Marc Casenave, manager in the rolling stock department at CFL.
