Railway construction companies are short of time. Construction windows are getting smaller and smaller, the required process speed is increasing. For a machine fleet this means more or less round the clock availability. This permanent availability can only be ensured with regular maintenance and overhauls or scheduled overhauls and expansion of the vehicle fleet.
The operating company is facing the challenge to maintain or increase the productive efficiency of its track construction machines and to keep the downtimes required as low as possible at the same time. Successful fleet management has to determine the optimum time and scope of maintenance. In a next step, the company needs to decide for which services it has in-house capacity and at what point it is economically more efficient to outsource the work to a service partner.
This article illustrates the range of services and the benefits of a so-called “retrofit” (complete overhaul) of construction machines, provides information about the required resources, about decision criteria and strategies.
