For a better efficiency, I thank you to complete this form and send it with your synopsis.
1. HSR operator members of UIC performing or managing the maintenance of HSR systems are encouraged to submit a paper on the topics of the 2nd UIC High Speed Interaction Workshop on Maintenance of HSRS.
2. Industry performing or managing the maintenance of HSR systems are also encouraged to submit a paper on the topics of the 2nd UIC High Speed Interaction Workshop on Maintenance of HSRS (the paper shall be technical oriented and not commercial oriented)
3. Presentation of paper shall be applied to UIC Beatrice Ségéral (Segeral uic.org) by Feb 21th, 2012 the latest.
4. All papers must be written in English, should response to the specific objectives for the topics and their presentation time should not longer than 15 to 20 min.
5. An abstract of the paper with an introduction of the speaker shall be submitted with the paper using the template provided by UIC by Feb 13th, 2012.
6. All papers and abstract shall be submitted to UIC Beatrice Ségéral (segeral uic.org) by March 31st, 2012 the latest. Priority will be given to the papers based on the registration order.
7. In the case the number of papers will exceed the number of possible presentations ; UIC will organize a selection committee.
8. Selected speakers will receive an e-mail confirming the acceptance of his/her abstract and papers.
9. All the approved papers will be shared after the workshop on the UIC website.
The workshop will cover the main HSR systems in used : China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, THSRC, etc. on the following topics :
- The strategy, management and organizational aspects (plenary sessions) ;
- The technical aspects of the maintenance of main systems / sub-systems (parallel sessions) :
- Civil Works,
- OCS & Power,
- Signaling & Communication,
- Rolling Stock.
The main objectives of the 2nd UIC Interaction Workshop are :
- Maintenance philosophy, conception & strategy aspects
- Business approaches
- Relationship between maintenance and Speed, Operation and Depreciation of equipment
- Geographic, environmental, legal, safety and interoperability approaches
- Organizational and resources aspects including ownership
- Life Cycle Cost and impact on the maintenance
- Industrialization : standardization, modularization aspects
- Target of performance
- Transition from construction to operation, and maintenance manual adjustment by the Operators
- Conditions Based Maintenance aspects
- Asset management and procurement aspects
Language The workshop will be conducted in English including papers presentation and discussion.
The target of the workshop is to allow benchmarking of the maintenance of HSR systems and therefore the presentations are expected to cover, but not limited to, the following aspects :
1. Preventive Maintenance : per type of operation and sub-system
- Business approaches : in house or outsourcing
- Maintenance cycle
- Time spent per operation and required resources : tools, vehicles and staffing (in house / outsourced)
- External factors impacting the maintenance : weather conditions, geological, interoperability, legal, etc
- Life Cycle Cost
- Target of performance (RAMS RAMS Reliability Availability Maintainability and Safety & KPI)
- Industrialization : standardization and modularization
- Conditions Based Maintenance implementation cases
- Maintenance manual adjustment by the Operator
- Procurement experience in leading time reduction, cost down, reliability improvement, etc.
- Unit cost
2. Corrective Maintenance : per type of operation -* Percentage of corrective maintenance vs. total maintenance per type of operation
- Failure rate (MDBF for train-set, MTBF for other sub-systems)
- Staffing requirement (in house or outsourcing)
- Engineering support for technical solution development (in house or outsourcing)
- Unit cost
3. Maintenance Management & Organization Considering the volume of issues to be discussed, 3 plenary sessions are planned on this topic :
1st Plenary Session : Strategy & Organization
- Relationship between maintenance and Speed, Operation and Depreciation of the equipment
- Geographic, environmental, legal and safety approaches of the maintenance
- Impact of Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI TSI Technical Specifications for Interoperability ) on maintenance
- Number and location of maintenance bases, depots, workshops ; Ownership of maintenance facilities and workshops
- Organization structure
- Staffing : global and per sub-system
- Strategy for staffing and outsourcing
- Size of the maintenance organization including outsourcing
- Access points to main line
- Staffing deployment along the HSR
- Key Performance Indicators :
- Reliability, Availability ,Safety
- Staffing : per train-set km for rolling stock train-sets or per infrastructure km for other sub-systems
2nd Plenary Session : Maintenance Transition
- Migration from maintenance during construction to operation stage
- Standardization, modularization
- Maintenance manual modification
- Condition based maintenance implementation
- Real time information and MMIS
- Relation between maintenance and depreciation
- Engineering support (size, role, etc.) and interface with maintenance
3rd Plenary sessions : Asset Management & Qualification
- Procurement & warehouse strategy, management
- Asset management
