Maintaining a state of good repair by incorporating a building block approach to Bench Test Equipment.
Keeping your fleet in a state of good repair is essential to maximizing your transit assets, minimizing schedule delays, and improving customer satisfaction. One area of concern for transit agencies is fleet readiness and the availability of trains during peak hours.
The ability to maintain your fleet while also delivering on-time performance is invaluable and significantly enhances the passenger experience.
An added benefit of maintaining a state of good repair is that fleet downtime is greatly reduced due to quick turn-around of assets undergoing maintenance.
Additionally, with self-maintenance (or organic maintenance capabilities), operators can greatly reduce the amount of spares inventory required to maintain their fleet. The vehicle is back in service faster and more cost effectively than sending equipment out to a repair house.
Bench Test Equipment (BTE) that is universal (or addresses various aspects of testing) and scalable (with the ability to expand) can benefit rail car builders, OEMs, and transit authorities with a comprehensive, flexible platform.
Test solutions for the transit market can be broadly categorized as follows:
