SOROS Planning Module provides comprehensive forward planning capability of all maintenance activities, from scheduled exams to unscheduled defects, engineering changes and fleet campaigns.
The Planning Module supports the scheduling of Exams by calendar days or miles, and when linked to the Operations Management Module will forecast due dates based on actual miles run or Diagrammed to run. The Operations Module gives visibility of available distance to run to train schedulers.
The module supports the recording or manhours available on any given shift, together with the manhours required for any task being planned, permitting accurate Load and Capacity management of resources.
Facility requirements such as Overhead Cranes & Equipment Drop for example can be specified for every maintenance task, and compared to those available in the maintenance location, helping maximise depot and avoid unnecessary train movements.
