Workshop Management Rail

Optimized planning and control within the shop floor

Rail Workshop guarantees a structured and standardized maintenance process from planning, scheduling and execution to the completion of maintenance orders for rail vehicles, in accordance with the underlying standards and guidelines.

With the increasing degree of digitalization in the workshop, paperless work is becoming a reality. Resource planning is made easier than ever before. That’s because workshop managers can create and manage orders at the touch of a button – taking into account the customer’s stabling schedule. The result is the optimal utilization of your workshop.

Rail Workshop is the mobile workshop solution that significantly increases personnel efficiency with digitally available work plans and checklists, thus minimizing the lead time per vehicle

ECM conformity

Rail Workshop is designed to comply with ECM 4 standards so that workshops are supported in the required end-to-end documentation of maintenance activities.

Digital Workshop-Management

Mobile workshop solution rail

Rail Workshop digitalizes your workshop – thereby putting an end to paper chaos. Order and resource planning is done completely digitally, as is the documentation for maintenance execution on the vehicle. Data is made available where it is needed. Thus, technicians receive the orders, maintenance specifications, checklists and other information digitally, so that unproductive times are reduced.

Software Features

Planning is made easy with Rail Workshop.
Workshop Managers are able to coordinate workshop orders electronically and assign them to the proper working platforms easily. Additionally, possible interface between Rail Asset and Rail Workshop simplify the coordination between both parties. The result: the optimum workshop utilization is achieved.

integrated management of ECM2 process instructions

Embedded administration of ECM2 process specifications

In the course of workshop certification accordering to ECM4, the set of process master data for maintenance types per vehicle series has to be stored, these includes also a catalogue with possible restrictions of use. The software offers the possibility to integrate these process master data into the system and thus ensure compliance with the ECM standards.

Integrated resource planning

Integrated resource planning

Worskhop Managers can easily plan and coordinate the needed resources for each workshop order. This includes working platforms, material, proper toolings, as well as assigning tasks to engineers with appropriate qualifications.

Checklist based mobile order processing

With the mobile order processing feature, all information relevant to maintenance is delivered efficiently and without delay to the maintenance technician and inspection results and working time are recorded electronically on the spot. That all happens on the basis of pre-defined checklists. Therefore, the complete documentation according to ECM4 standards is guaranteed.

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.
