Implementation of Fleet Management in Train Traction
AbstractThe implementation of fleet management in the train tractionactivity is a must in the conditions of market operation ofthe railway sector, since good management of traction units hasnot alternative. The crucial issue of implementing such sophisticatedtools is in real environment, and therefore SWOT analysisof the most important technological indicators has been carriedout, in order to determine the most efficient method of itsimplementation. The defined technological indicators and therespective criteria have been used to evaluate the possible implementationof the total fleet management system in the HiVuca vlakova (Hi- Train Traction) company. The pilot projectcarried out in the activities of the Hi- Train Traction hasresulted in great savings at the annual level in fuel consumption,creating also the preconditions for the savings in fleetmaintenance and work force recruitment. Based on the resultsof the pilot project the methodology for efficient implementationof fleet management was defined. The defined methodologywas tested in real conditions and can be implemented atany company which provides services of train traction or manoeuvringof locomotives.
