  • First of all, about C.R.I.S. where I did my training. Centre for Railway Information System has its office at Chanakya Puri, New Delhi.…
  • In January 2008 C.R.I.S. introduced Tender.The Tender talked about implementing an Integrated Solution which would automate several procedures for Locomotives Maintenance at Sheds.The key features of the solutions are - …
  • The solution would consists of following high-level modules…WISE-II : Workshop Information Management System – Phase II
  • The objective of the training was to do a Comparative Study among Software Packages demanded as per the tender document to implement ERP/EAM based solution, and to recommend the optimal one among compared.
  • The scope of training was constrained to Technical Comparison. The Software packages compared were …
  • Availability of Credible Resources was one factor, the sources were carefully chosen for the study. The implementation of a solution of such a level requires years extensive experience, which I lacked. Enterprise Products are not available for the use.
  • The plan of work was carried out as shown .. The study of relevant information from the tender document was the first step in the plan of work.Data Gathering was next on the plan of work and one of the longest activity. While Interview/Expert consultation took only 3 days.Analysis & Report compilation were next on the plan.Report Submission was the last and took the least time.
  • No specific Research Methodology was followed!Summer Training was a study and therefore no specific research methodology was applicable.
  • Following are the tools & techniques that were used during the training.
  • This section is focused on Results of Comparative Study.
  • The first section of Comparative Study is Database. Two Products were taken into consideration – Oracle Database & IBM’s DB2.S-P-A-M were considered as comparative parameters.The main source of Study for DBMS were
  • The next section of Comparative Study is Application Server. Two Products were taken into consideration – SAP NetWeaver & IBM WebSphere.T-P-I were considered as Comparative Parameters. Sources of Information were majorly White Papers & Official Websites.
