Supplier value chains and maintenance intervals entail a direct influence on both costs and availability of locomotives. One of the most critical systems for maintenance are the bogies, as they are safety-relevant and their components are subject to wear.
Digitalization, such as sensor technology, laser measurement technology, etc., allow a condition-based maintenance (CBM) approach for bogies. Major improvement of maintenance intervals by ECM2 become feasible. To ensure full responsibility, it is necessary to maintain a thorough risk management procedure, including a hazard log. Systematic methods for hazard classification facilitate the independent assessment by an AsBo.
PROSE with Armin Burth as expert offers consulting regarding possible extensions of maintenance intervals, supports the ECM in the implementation of the risk management procedure and accompanies the assessment process accordingly.
