In the transport and public transport industry, reliability, punctuality and the ability to react quickly to unforeseen events are what counts. The big challenge in the case of unforeseen events (breakdown, staff absences, …) is that it requires the interaction of all forces.
A rail vehicle is on its way abroad and has a technical defect that requires a prompt solution. Now the RU faces several problems. On the one hand, the company must send a replacement vehicle to complete the job and ensure customer satisfaction. At the same time, the defective rail vehicle must be taken to the workshop. For this purpose a certified workshop has to be found and the order has to be placed. Boom Rail Asset, as a complete software solution, can quickly react to changes in the operation and adapt the fleet management to the breakdown. The integrated workshop locator makes it possible to quickly find a suitable workshop if your own is not within reach.
If the company’s own workshop is nearby, the integrated maintenance and workshop management changes the priorities and places the corresponding orders.
In Boom Rail Asset, not only workshop management (Boom Rail Workshop) but also wheelset management is integrated. This is because it is an enormous advantage if operating data of the wheelset is available at any time. This also allows wear to be modeled and predicted in the best possible way. Indeed, this is relevant because the wheelset is a very sensitive component, but one that is of great importance to the rail vehicle. Integrated wheelset management not only enables predictive maintenance, but it is a crucial asset in demand planning. In this way, workshop visits are planned at an early stage and controlled in the fleet management, and the availability of the vehicles as well as the reliability of the RU are guaranteed.
