  • Measuring performance of linear assets considering their spatial extension
    • Authors: Professor Uday Kumar; Associate Professor Aditya Parida Associate Professor Ramin Karim et al
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 20, Issue 3, Page 276-289, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate how performance of linear assets can be analysed and displayed, considering both the technical asset and the user context, to simplify cognitive tasks of planning and decision making. Design/methodology/approach – Linear, or continuous assets, such as roads, railways, electrical grids and pipelines, are large, geographically spread out technical systems. Linear assets are comprised of system, subsystem and component levels. Thus, asset managers are involved with each level of the linear asset; asset management has strategic, tactical and operational levels. A methodology is developed to link together the technical and organisational levels and to measure asset performance considering their spatial extension. Geographical location and time are used as independent variables. Findings – For performance measurement of linear assets, it is found that the spatial extension is an equally generic dimension as time is for technical assets in general. Furthermore, as linear assets actually are combinations of linear and point assets; separate analysis of these assets is a prerequisite. Asset performance has been studied in a case study in terms failures and cost; the results indicate that the methodology visualise poor, as well as good, performance in an easy to interpret manner. Besides, the results indicate that other parameters related to dependability can be presented in a similar way. Practical implications – This study highlights the importance of including the spatial or geographical extension of linear assets in infrastructure managers’ performance measurement. It is believed that the methodology can make planning and decision making more effective by pointing out improvement areas in technical assets, in a way that is appealing to both technicians and managers. Social implications – As infrastructure managers are improving their analysis and visualisation of performance, the public's interest of following the information increases, which in turn contributes to the connection between infrastructure managers and the public. Originality/value – The presented methodology and case study analysed performance in function of both the technical and organisational levels, including the spatial component. It is believed that the methodology for analysing and visualising performance of linear assets is distinctive.

  • Enhancing the usability of maintenance data management systems
    • Authors: Professor Uday Kumar; Associate Professor Aditya Parida Associate Professor Ramin Karim et al
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 20, Issue 3, Page 290-303, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore and study the aspects of usability related to eMaintenance solutions. The study aims to expand the domain of eMaintenance by increasing the usefulness of the computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) through improved usability. Design/methodology/approach – The paper opted for an exploratory study using interviews, one expert focus group discussion, and observations. Findings – The paper provides insights on specific usability characteristics that can be adapted to eMaintenance solutions for industrial usage, e.g. aviation and process industry. The findings show that the current implementations of eMaintenance solutions in CMMS, in many cases, suffer from an insufficient level of usability. This has led to usability issues resulting in errors and mistakes. The result is a call for a more user-based focus, in which, the system needs to be easily understood, easily navigated, containing the necessary information to conduct maintenance tasks, tracking of the work conducted and who was involved, and the system needs to be compatible with other systems so that necessary information can be accessed via the CMMS. Research limitations/implications – Because of the chosen research approach, the research results may lack generalizability. Therefore, researchers are encouraged to test the proposed propositions further. Practical implications – The paper includes implications for the development of a CMMS, which could have positive effects for maintenance tasks. Originality/value – This paper fulfills an identified need to study how CMMS actually fulfill the task they are designed to do.

  • Information logistics for continuous dependability improvement
    • Authors: Professor Uday Kumar; Associate Professor Aditya Parida Associate Professor Ramin Karim et al
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 20, Issue 3, Page 249-261, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe an information logistic framework for continuous dependability improvement that is applied within Sweden to improve the operational availability performance of the railway system. Design/methodology/approach – The applied study approach is a case study of the Swedish iron ore transports, described from the perspectives of the infrastructure manager and the operator of the rolling stock. Qualitative data were collected through interviews, workshops and document studies, while quantitative data were collected through databases. As a framework for analysis, international standards within the dependability area were applied. Finally, the conclusions of the study were verified by key informants. Findings – Information logistics provides methodologies and technologies to support continuous dependability improvement through monitoring of the operational availability performance and its included aspects of reliability performance, maintainability performance and maintenance support performance. Practical implications – The operational availability performance of technical systems is crucial to provide a quality of services that fulfils the requirements of stakeholders. Hence, continuous dependability improvement is necessary to keep pace with increasing stakeholder requirements and ongoing system degradation to enable stakeholder satisfaction. The framework is based on best practices and international standards. Originality/value – The proposed framework includes an integration of methodologies and technologies from the information technology and dependability management areas that considers both railway infrastructure and rolling stock.

  • eMaintenance solution through online data analysis for railway maintenance
           decision-making
    • Authors: Professor Uday Kumar; Associate Professor Aditya Parida Associate Professor Ramin Karim et al
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 20, Issue 3, Page 262-275, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how research within the railway sector is developing eMaintenance solutions using the cloud and web-based applications for improved condition monitoring, better maintenance and increased uptime. This eMaintenance solution is based on the on-line data acquisition, integration and analysis leading to effective maintenance decision making. Design/methodology/approach – In the proposed methodology, data are acquired from railway measurement stations to the eMaintenance cloud, where they are filtered, fused, integrated and analysed to assist maintenance decisions. Extensive consultation with stakeholders has resulted in the analysis of railway data. Findings – The paper provides a concept for a web-based eMaintenance solution for railway maintenance stakeholders for making fact-based decisions and develops more efficient and economically sound maintenance policies. Train wheels reaching their maintenance and safety limits are visualised in grids and graphs to assist stakeholders in making the appropriate maintenance decisions. Practical implications – In this paper the authors have demonstrated that the wheel profile and force data can be remotely collected through cloud utilisation. The information generated can be used for maintenance decision making. Similarly, other measurable data can also be utilised for maintenance decision making. Originality/value – This paper describes the importance of eMaintenance solution through online data analysis to make effective and efficient railway maintenance decisions, as a case study.

  • Condition monitoring and e-maintenance solution of railway wheels
    • Authors: Professor Uday Kumar; Associate Professor Aditya Parida Associate Professor Ramin Karim et al
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 20, Issue 3, Page 216-232, August 2014. Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the failure-driven capacity consumption of wheels on the track, to determine whether there are some relations to vehicle wheel configurations that show a larger amount of failures, and to ascertain the influence of the temperature and the travelling direction of the train on the number of events. This information can be used to develop prognostic health management so that more track capacity can be gained without modifications, re-building or re-investments. Design/methodology/approach – This paper presents a study of 1,509 warning and alarm events concerning train wheels. The data come from the infrastructure manager's wheel defect detectors and wheel profile measurement system. These data have been analysed and processed to find patterns and connections to different vehicles, travelling directions and temperatures. Findings – Lower temperatures increase the probability of wheels having high vertical forces. Trains with different wheel configurations show different results. With high vertical forces, the probability of wheel failures at axles 6 and 7 is high for locomotives with two bogies and three axles in each bogie (2×3). All these findings can be used to develop the maintenance, monitoring and inspection principles for wheels. Practical implications – The inspection of wheels to detect failures needs to be more frequent on days and in seasons with lower temperatures. The wheel inspection should be performed more frequently at axles 6 and 7 for locomotives with a 2×3 wheel configuration. The inspection and monitoring of wheels need to be carried out more carefully for trains travelling south, to avoid a large amount of wheels with high force levels rolling in the southern direction. Originality/value – The analysis carried out in this paper identifies important factors that correlate with the high occurrence of wheel defects. It also proposes a conceptual e-maintenance model for the combination of wheel condition monitoring data from different system. The value of this study is the provision of information to support prognostic and health management system to support proactive maintenance.
