Reliability Improvements

Reliability is a constant measure of your current fleet performance based on mileage done between failures or MDBF.

Failure to measure or control your MDBF can lead to :

  • Incurring of network and other operator fines
  • Reduction of availability to passengers (which leads to poor customer perception)
  • Deflated asset value
  • Defective maintenance costs increase

Meridian Generic Rail has a proven track record increasing MDBF. Some of our methods include the devising of statistical modelling and analytical tools so we can visualise trends and make fleetwide data-driven decisions.

Once we have the correct data required we can put together a reliability improvement roadmap which is your shortcut to experienced-based impactful decision making that raises your MDBF.

We also provide the resources and skilled team to implement the reliability improvement roadmap if you don't have the required resources at your disposal.
