1 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Innovations in high (speed) performance maintenance WP4 Ulla Juntti Luleå University of Technology October 4th Paris

2 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission High performance maintenance  High performance maintenance is a combination of all innovative, technical, logistic and managerial actions during the life cycle of any engineering asset to assure high dependability with minimum cost.

3 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Objectives  To provide more capacity for freight trains by:  Speeding up large scale maintenance (e.g. grinding and tamping) by elimination, reduction /isolation of performance killers, and elimination of cost and risk drivers.  Reduce maintenance time for switches and crossings by introducing a modular approaches, including the future technological requirements and current IMs’ practices.  Develop methods for introducing optimal maintenance methods and principles.

4 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission tasks 1.Identification & documentation of performance killers and drivers which will facilitate development of guidelines to deal with performance killers; 2.High performance grinding 3.High performance tamping 4.Modular switches and crossings 5.Optimised maintenance systems/principles and its application

5 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission 1. Performance killers Grinding (5)  Bad rout planning and short worksites  Production targets not aligned to possession duration  Lack of maintenance strategy and clear objectives  Lack of cost effective maintenance limits (Thresholds) for grinding  Not adequate reporting of conducted maintenance, lack of maintenance history  Planning of possession time is not coordinated  Lack of information (check list) about personnel skills, education check list  Lack of measurement equipment for monitoring RCF, wear, plastic flow  The instructions on how to grind is made manually, which put a high demand on the personnel, mistakes are often made due to e.g. stress.  Low capacity on grindings vehicles  No reports /lacking quality of conducted maintenance  Data is stored in paper format in different files, not always available when needed  Reliability of grinding vehicles are not so good, the supportability of spare parts is not good enough.  Lack of modules/software for evaluation of each grinding cycle  No or lacking storage locations for grinding vehicles  Only way to reach the grinding site is by track, not possible to lift outside track when train passes.  Bad quality on condition measures, not presented as easy decision support  Lack of enhanced planning software for optimised grinding on a route by route basis Tamping (3)  Low utilisation of possession time, Time spent on travelling to and traversing the work site (an issue likely to get worse given the tendency to remove switches an sidings), and other aspects related to the abilities of the equipment used.  Distance between the machine stabling point and the worksite  More knowledge of degradation, it is unclear how far track should be allowed to deteriorate and what rate should trig a special maintenance activity  There is insufficient understanding of the optimum point at which to plan intervention  Lack of standardisation regarding key tamping parameters such as the optimum speed of tamping, the pressure to be applied to the tamping tines, and the depth at which they are inserted. It was suggested that there is a need for better guidance on the optimum approach.  Better analysing of existing track recording data to trend deterioration rates  Limited flexibility and highly variable capability between machine types  Slow moving in between scheduled service trains  the other work activities going on at the same work site are interfering Switches and crossings (2) ?? Lean analysis and Value Streamed mapping

16 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Tamping - ongoing  Trials were carried out at Deutsche Bahn to identify the impact of tamping parameters on tamping performance and quality.  Further analysis of tamping shifts regarding needed time for different process steps lead to a better basis for optimization and identification of “waste”.  First LCC analyses demonstrate the impact of tamping strategies on life cycle cost, quality and life time of track.
