Solution for smooth local transport
Tram maintenance

Digital workshop, infrastructure, depot and vehicle management

In public transportation, which is readily accepted and motivates people to switch to public transportation, the most important thing is the service: accessibility, frequency, and networking between lines and means of transportation. However, the timetable on paper is only half the story. It is important that people can also rely on it. Punctuality and reliability are just as important for the use of public transportation. Interchanges, hubs and a timetable only work if the vehicles are in the right place at the right time and the operation is as trouble-free as possible. To achieve this, it is important that resources are used efficiently.
This is optimally ensured by digital workshop, infrastructure, depot and vehicle management. At the same time, decision-makers have a valid data basis for entrepreneurial and planning measures (e.g., investments). In this context, predictive vehicle maintenance is an essential component. Whether planned maintenance intervals or spontaneous breakdowns.

Use Case

The public transport system is the backbone of mobility in a city or region. This makes the need for stable and reliable operation even more important. A change in demand represents a particularly great challenge in public transport. This is influenced in different ways, for example, by mass events, the weather or even public holidays.
Regardless of whether it is a spontaneous or predictable change in demand, it is necessary to take comprehensive steps to ensure smooth operations. With Boom Bus & Rail Solutions, this can be done quickly and easily.

For example, if there is an increase in demand, it is necessary to provide more capacity. More personnel are needed, vehicles have to leave the depot – not to forget in the right order and according to priority – and the workshop also has to follow these priorities. The unit responsible for vehicle maintenance must also be informed of the change at an early stage and on an ongoing basis. In this way, urgent work on vehicles coming into service is brought forward.

 

 

In addition, the fleet is prepared for times of high demand by means of predictive maintenance. This is the only way to ensure that operations run as smoothly as possible.
The high level of interoperability in the complete solution provided by Boom enables smooth alignment and coordination of all areas, from the workshop to vehicle and personnel management.
At the same time, when demand decreases or operations are discontinued, the top priority is to make the most efficient use of the often severely limited space available in the depot or remise. Boom’s integrated depot management facilitates organization in the depot and space is optimally utilized. The vehicles are also organized correctly from the beginning, so that when demand increases or when operations start, the vehicles are correctly positioned for the departure.
In this way, the capacity of depots or remises can be utilized to the maximum before even having to think about investing in new depots.

SKILLED WORKERS IN THE RAIL INDUSTRY ARE IN DEMAND MORE THAN EVER: Fokus on workshops (PART 2)
Post from 13. July 2022

The shortage of skilled workers has been a serious challenge for rail vehicle workshops for years. Workshops have the ambition to achieve the highest possible utilisation of capacity and at the same time ensure the highest possible level of quality in the work carried out on the rail vehicle. However, the lack of well-trained skilled workers makes it difficult to implement the ECM2 process specifications.
