Case Studies

Case Study - Rolling Stock Maintenance Delivery System

A global mining company, with one of the world’s largest private rail networks, is currently working to toward significantly expanding its production capacity. With the expansion of the company’s business the management and maintenance of the RTIO rolling stock becomes more important. In particular, the scheduling and delivery of rolling stock to maintenance, and its subsequent return to operations must be managed effectively. >>

Case Study - Rail Network Planning and Scheduling System

A global mining company, with one of the world’s largest private rail networks, is currently working to toward significantly expanding its production capacity. With the expansion of the company’s business more locomotives and rolling stock will be used on the rail network. The network will become more congested and any track or signals maintenance work or new construction work will become more disruptive than before. >>

Case Study - Rolling Stock GPS System

The rail division of a global mining company recently implemented GPS hardware and software on the locomotive fleet and on some specialist track vehicles. One of the problems encountered by the system was the unreliable GPS signal which was experienced when rolling stock travelled close to major infrastructure such as the maintenance sheds. The system also lacked good reporting and spatial visualisation capabilities which led to decision support issues. Examples of these issues included the ability to locate and determine locomotive and track vehicle activity and utilisation metrics. >>
