Adopting Technology, Working Smarter & Improving Efficiencies For Rolling Stock Maintenance And Depot Optimisation
27-29 June 2023
About Last Year's Event:
Taking place in person and online on 28-30 June 2022, our Fleet Maintenance conference for Rolling Stock returns to London with a separate day dedicated to Depot Management.
It is no secret that the effects of Covid 19 and decreased rider numbers are still affecting a lot of rail operators. This just highlights however the importance of cost saving across the industry and one area of that is improving the efficiency of maintenance.
We are all aware of the limitations of relying solely on predictive maintenance and the needs of a more complex maintenance strategy that balances predictive analytics with other factors like condition and more classical routine inspections. How can we be sure that we have the most efficient strategies in place without comparing with other operators though?
Getting staff to engage with new technologies and practices can be a challenge. Some of the new technologies on the market present low-cost opportunities for managing and automating routine tasks, allowing engineers to focus their time more effectively. This underlines the importance of ensuring engineers get behind changes to working practices and the adoption of new technology.
We will explore how leading passenger rail operators as well as other sectors have managed similar implementation changes and challenges, to insure that money spent investing in new practices and technologies has the intended benefits to your operations.
For the first time we also have a whole separate day dedicated to Depot Management allowing us to explore the appropriateness and efficiency of facilities. How key changes to depot infrastructure and equipment can increase
train throughout. How regional and national operators have invested in new depot facilities, and how to ensure depot safety and security.
This program will offer solutions and insights across the following strategic priority learning areas:
- Insights Into A Variety Of Maintenance Strategies For Optimum Efficiency
- Increasing Staff Retention and Engagement With New Technologies and
- Managing Obsolescence And Replacing Key Failure Areas
- Technical Solutions For Decreasing Maintenance Downtime
- Optimum Specifications For Different Depot And Rolling Stock
