‘OXplus sponsors the international Maximo Rail Industry Summit’
Being main sponsor ( … together with IBM and Accenture) of the international Maximo Rail Industry Summit on June 7th 2011 in La Gaude (France), Oxplus is getting a fantastic opportunity to position its Value Proposition and specific Industry knowledge. The Rail summit is hosted by SNCF and is specifically organized for all railroads, railways, transit and metro systems that have an interest in asset management. A similar event hosted by Amtrak took place in the USA in February and was a great success, leading to European rail companies requesting an event in their region.
Most likely 80 to 100 representatives from rail and transportation industry organizations will come together to share their implementation experiences, lessons learned and plans for the future. This event is intended to facilitate the verbal sharing of ideas and progress between industry colleagues.
Besides SNCF, Russian Railways, Bombardier Transportation, NedTrain, Norwegian Railways and Dubai Metro, will present their companies with topics covering both rolling stock and linear infrastructure assets. SNCF will provide a keynote presentation for the summit describing the State and Future of the European Rail Industry. SNCF is currently implementing Maximo to support rolling stock and infrastructure.
NedTrain will present together with Oxplus how Rail companies can:
– align their organization and employees when introducing ‘new ways of working’ in combination with an implementation of Asset Management systems like Maximo.
– Implement processes and Maximo to cover the requirements for maintenance of High-Speed rolling stock.
Specifically for the Rail Industry Oxplus has build an ‘accelerator’ which covers nearly all business processes like Fleet Management, Maintenance Engineering, Configuration Management, Workorder management, Purchasing and Logistics, Preventive Maintenance, Planning & Scheduling but also Incident Management, SHE (Safety Health and Environment) and Warranties & Claims.
By using our PEAQUE methodology we are building a bridge between Projects Objectives and Organizational alignment when implementing an Asset Management system.
