2:20 PM The Next Frontier: How To Sustain Service Safety, Reliability And Cost Efficiency Outcomes As Automation Becomes Central To Your Train Control Operations

Kevin Lill is focused on helping Rio Tinto think through forward looking challenges with AutoHaul, the largest automation project in the world, well underway. Currently, he is working through how the traditional rail maintenance team and strategy needs to radically change from its statistical approach towards rail decisions and maintenance regimes to sustain the reliability, cost-savings and productivity that automation in train control enables. In this session he takes you through:

  • Learning from fixed plant industries – what do they teach train control leaders about challenges in automated operating environment
  • Re-designing working relationship between operations, strategy and maintenance teams for an automated train control setting
  • Moving to a data-driven decisioning maintenance approach to bring 100% accuracy in maintenance decisions 
  • Evolving your technology and integration strategy to maximize value from automation
