Train security and maintenance
NedTrain is the locomotive and rolling stock maintenance and repair company of the Dutch Railways company, NS. Security officers who are responsible for detailed security and maintenance checks of the trains used to do this on paper.
To improve the process, a mobile app for doing the checks on the spot was introduced. The testing instructions and applicable requirements often change so it was not efficient to keep them locally on the device.
Up2 was asked to design and build a monitoring system for managing the trains’ specifications centrally, providing always updated data to the devices and collecting the results from trains’ maintenance checks.
The new system resulted in a huge decrease in manual work.
