RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety) MANAGEMENT
The close connection between safety, reliability and life cycle costs asks for optimized products with regard to reliability, availability and safety. It is in the scope of the RAMS management of voestalpine SIGNALING to analyse risks, reliability, maintainability and safety for each product, in accordance with EN 50126 standards. The goal of our RAMS management is to minimize potential risks for humans and the environment and to maximize the reliability and safety of our products.
LCC (Life Cycle Costs) - optimized turnout
For all organizations considerations of life-cycle costs are gaining in importance. This is also true for railway companies all over the world.
voestalpine SIGNALING has been facing these challenges for many years and responds to these new requirements with special solutions.
Apart from product prices, maintenance costs have a significant influence on life cycle costs.
LCC optimized turnouts are the result of the following:
- Minimization of forces and accelerations acting on turnouts
- Load-adjusted design of turnout components by using finite element calculations
- Use of materials suitable for turnout components subjected to high load
- Use of low-maintenance components to reduce maintenance and servicing
