Planning

Planning made simple and transparent

Our software supports you with planning of workshop orders. By integrating bidirectional customer interfaces, either to our Rail Asset or other customer systems, planning is simplified. This also includes the coordination of maintenance appointments with the customer.

Our software solution helps you with capacity planning, as well as spare parts and resource planning.

1
Workshop
Preparation

The right resources, at the right time, in the right place

Organize your resources for the associated maintenance activities. The software allows you to plan in advance. Through the integration of ECM2 process instructions, you always know exactly which resources and manpower are required. Deploy your personnel, infrastructure and materials correctly.

2
Workshop
Execution

Efficient working

Once the work packages have been distributed and the vehicle is physically in the workshop, the maintenance activities begin – and all this happens without any paperwork. Predefined, mobile checklists make this possible. These are accessed via a smartphone, for example, which the engineer carries with him. Interfaces to measuring devices and tools transfer the measurement results directly into the system, which further promotes paperless work.

A workshop monitor ensures that you always have an eye on the progress of the work.

Workshop
Finalization

Clean data acquisition and documentation

The use of mobile checklists ensures a complete documentation, which is regulated by ECM4.

Photo documentation and comments are entered into the system by the technician on site. The software also handles the operational release. At the end of the process, the customer receives all the documentation he has requested.

This process is considerably simplified and accelerated by a bidirectional interface to customer systems.

Workshop
Order Completion

Access to the work log

The final accounting is easily done with just a few button presses in the system. The consumed materials and spare parts, as well as the time records are entered into the software. This information is then used for further invoicing.
