This presentation is about a solution deployed by Fretless Idea in 2Q 2007 for enforcing interoperability between RU partners Rail Traction Company and Lokomotion. The 'Transfering Information on Maintenance for Interoperability' (Train Mint) project was delivered to face the demand of organising maintenance management for interoperable engines.

The Train Mint project: an Agile solution for interoperability management The Train Mint project: an Agile solution for interoperability management Presentation Transcript

  • Fretless Idea Transfering information on Maintenance for interoperability The Train Mint project an Agile solution for interoperability management 13th UIC eBusiness Conference - Paris, 23 October 2009
  • Fretless Idea Project's domain ● Small Railway undertaking (33 engines) ● Solution will scale on RU growth
  • Fretless Idea Content ● Who? ● When? ● Why? ● What? ● How? ● Doing the math
  • Fretless Idea Who? ● Rail Traction Company ● Lokomotion ● Fretless Idea
  • Fretless Idea Who: Rail Traction Company ● One of the major italian private rail freight operators ● 33 engines of which 19 interoperable ● Combined and traditional transport, traffic through the Brenner pass ● Customer Project Manager Ing. Edoardo Marone
  • Fretless Idea Who: Lokomotion ● Partner RTC ● Est. in 2001 ● First private rail company to use Brenner pass deregulation
  • Fretless Idea Who: Fretless Idea ● IT systems design and implementation since 1999 ● Skilled IT partner for Rail Operators since 2004 ● + projects on other industries
  • Fretless Idea When? ● 2Q 2007 ● Two months solution
  • Fretless Idea Why? ● Detected lack of optimization on mileage maintenance ● Rough forecast for interoperable engines ● No data on engine outside RTC shift but predictable. ● Mileage forecast quality not considered satisfactory ● 45' per day spent on calculations (25 engines total) ● Possibility of calculation mistakes (excel sheets) ● Double check
  • Fretless Idea What? 1. Having maintenance forecast for engine groups 2. Having partner RU engine usage information 3. Having maintenance information shared with partner RU
  • Fretless Idea What? 1. Extra requirements on-the-fly: ● Automating communication to partner RU which engine have been set on which train (MIIRC ps) ● Automating communication to partner RU near real- time timing information on the trains (MIIRC ps) ● Uptime/downtime calculation from the same data (cheaper to do at this point)
  • Fretless Idea How: initial situation ● Rail Traction Company ● GeCO system ● maintenance forecast on weekly basis ● Lokomotion ● exposing service production from corporate website
  • Fretless Idea How: the analysis ● Assessment of ● Data availability ● Data quality analysis ● Integration ● Process definition ● Architecture choice ● Security assessment
  • Fretless Idea How: the method ● Pull approach ● Build of resource + locations matching tables ● Missing mileage supply (existing GeCO fn) ● New locations/distances insertion proposal (easing administrators for systems synchronization)
  • Fretless Idea How: agile ● Most suitable for critical time-to-production projects ● Value-oriented development → Better quality, better productivity, cost reduction ● Managing priorities dynamically → New requirements are welcome ● Narrowing development windows. Scrum → Daily meetings with the team ● Continuous integration, continuous releases, automatic build & deployment → customer satisfaction
  • Fretless Idea How: the result ● Project success in short time ● Full customer satisfaction: ● Better maintenance forecast ● Maintenance plan shared with partner RU ● Streamline of information sharing (interop+timing) ● Extra value from uptime/downtime KPI
  • Fretless Idea Doing the math ● +15% on forecast precision → >90% ● 28 man-days saved each year (on 25 engines) ● Payback <1 year (counting only time saved) ● 1 month for delivery using Agile methodology. (Releases once a week)
  • Fretless Idea Any questions? ? Enough time for quick demo of maintenance module?
