All rolling stock has periodic maintenance actions to ensure safe operation of all systems on the vehicle. A fleet star chart defines the intervals in time or mileage to trigger a maintenance action. Fleet managers group together maintenance actions in blocks to align them with maintenance slots e.g. daily, weekly and quarterly. Even a small fleet will create thousands of maintenance activity records every year.
You can imagine the problems of a paper-based system handling this volume of paperwork. Furthermore, it is difficult to pick out historic records and impossible to extract any insights for process improvements by looking at the engineering data held or the time it takes to complete maintenance activities.
