Wheelset Overhaul Management Wrap

Tags: Rapid Application Development

Our latest wrap application controls the supply of new wheels, axles, brake discs, bearings, gearwheels, refurbishment of power driven and passenger wheelsets, replacement of worn components, magnetic particle inspection, ultrasonic testing and dynamic balancing of wheelsets. Work carried out includes rewheeling, renewal of axles and bearings. The integrity of wheelsets is safety critical. The application will be launched from our new Siemens wrapsite and will manage interaction with their wheel overhaul supplier (Lucchini Unipart Rail). It is a shared wrap application so that everybody is on the same page, or the same wrap instance as we would say, viewing and adding shared information together. This continuous process is updated on a real time live Gantt chart and any wheelset component can be searched online to find the overhaul record. The application will be launched tomorrow at Siemens Supplier Day hosted at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), Coventry.
