System for monitoring operation and forecasting the technical condition of locomotives
Проблема
Problem
  • High costs of eliminating failure consequences
  • Excessive planned maintenance and repair downtime due to the defect identification in the process of locomotive maintenance
  • Manual analysis of MCS data
  • Long-term diagnostics (over 4 hours)
  • Lack of a single telemetry data storage
Tasks

Implementation of a system to monitor the locomotive operation and forecast the locomotive technical condition

Improved reliability and technical availability of the locomotive fleet

Centralized collection, storage and analysis of diagnostic information

Diagnostic results transfer to the client's accounting system

Features of the project
  • Wide geography of locomotives location throughout Russia
  • Need for a deep dive into the data structure and quality due to many equipment types
  • Lack of historical data on past failures
  • Need for a deep dive in the customer's processes
Features of the project
Solution

A system of risk-based maintenance and repair management based on the equipment actual state.

The solution implements
  • Collects, processes and stores online telemetry data from equipment sensors
  • Ensures the engineering and mathematical model operation for units and assemblies
  • Assesses and forecasts the equipment "health index"

The system has no rival on the market and was tailored for the customer's needs
