KEYNOTE: CULTURAL CHANGE STRATEGIES AND DRIVING AN ADAPTABLE WORKFORCE
WORKFORCE STRATEGY TO MAXIMISE STAFF COMPETENCY
8:40 Developing A Workforce Strategy To Maximise Staff Competency, Human Reliability And Creating An Information Sharing Culture
When introducing new technological systems it is important to bring together the world of digital technology with that of the industry engineer and maintenance technician. More understanding and clarity is required in relation to the corporate knowledge, skills and experience needed to create a special department, and what kind of job titles, and degrees are necessary. In addition there is a lot of discussion about how departments should efficiently communicate and work together with the people who have the actual engineering knowledge of the machines and in particular across interfaces with other assets.

11:25 The Current And Future State Of Wayside Diagnostic Monitoring As A Tool For Condition Based Maintenance In Rail
Wayside train monitoring systems are designed to measure and monitor the condition and performance of railcar components.
Automated analysis of component condition data can identify faults a significant time before possible failure, allowing maintenance to be planned and completed with minimum impact on services.
This decreases in-service failures enables efficient planning of maintenance (rather than emergency maintenance) and maximizes component usage, all of which helps to reduce maintenance and materials costs and improve safety.
This presentation will use examples of customer success to demonstrate the benefits of wayside condition monitoring today and take a look at the huge potential of the future of this technology.
- An introduction to vision-based wayside monitoring solutions from Beena Vision, A Trimble Company.
- A demonstration of condition based maintenance driven by proactive asset monitoring.
