Abstract

Investing in all operational management aspects is of great importance to the proper management and maintenance of capital assets. The primary maintenance processes are to be up to the task and to have the organization of the production plants, statements of work, planning and work preparation well in order. Continuous improvement presupposes an atmosphere where presenting improvement proposals, reporting, and removing unsafe working conditions is encouraged as a matter of course. By conducting the technical management of trains in maintenance close to the workshop floor, staff members are able to improve on the performance of the trains. Correct and proper information and the related necessary information systems allow for the analysis of performance and the implementation of improvement measures wherever required. Over the past few years, NedTrain has implemented major improvements to the performance of rolling stock in the Netherlands. Plans to perform maintenance activities closer to the transportation process and more closely attuned to dynamic maintenance demand await implementation in the near future.
