  • Improving Predictive Maintenance and Condition Based Monitoring to Maximize Rail Reliability & Serviceability
  • Best Practices in Rail Asset Management for Maximizing Asset Service Life, Performance & Operational Readiness
  • Design, Engineering & Upgrading Rail Infrastructure and Permanent Way Capacity To Meet Increased Traffic Demand


Summit Background

Rapid growth in railway traffic demand has been and will be a leading factor for enormous investments on rail engineering, maintenance, upgradation, and asset management projects. Beside the cost of rail projects, serviceability, reliability, and safety have consistently been greatest objectives amongst project leaders, funding agencies including rail operators and ministries/departments of transports.

Innovations in maintenance performance, asset management as well as capacity analyses have proven to allow rail operators and rail infrastructure owners to realize economical spending on maintenance & renewal projects and are essential in meeting increased traffic demands, speed, and axle loads. While the development of practices and technologies (including predictive maintenance & condition based monitoring, asset-life cycle strategies, computerized maintenance management, new track materials, advanced sensors…) minimize degradation, uncertainty and set rail assets against higher RAMS requirements, there are pressing challenges in implementation of such practices facing rail operators. Designers, constructors, and operators are striving to identify better practices to extend rail life cycles, minimize infrastructure defects, reduce life cycle costs, set annual targets for operational readiness and maintenance performance improvements.

Returning to Singapore between 22-25 August 2017, The 6th Annual Rail Engineering & Maintenance Summit will continue to be the leading platform for Global rail projects’ leaders, rail infrastructure owners & operators to share their unique sets of practices in overcoming challenges from developing sustainable rail systems engineering, maintenance and extension plans.

Key Issues that will be Addressed At 6th Rail Engineering & Maintenance Summit 2017

  • Track integrated Condition based monitoring (CBM), diagnostic technologies and inspection strategies
  • Implementation of predictive maintenance: condition measurement & performance parameters
  • Determination of factors affecting railway capacity and operational readiness
  • Identify measures against asset life limiting factors
  • Maintenance & renewal of legacy tracks
  • Designing & engineering permanent way to handle increased traffic and axle loads and track geometry degradation prediction
  • Digitisation approaches in Maintenance Planning: implementation, data selection and analyses of rail profile
  • Proper determination of rail profile, rail profile parameters, structural integrity
  • Rail asset predictive analyses and accuracy in life cycle estimation
  • Track surface inspection & measurement systems for defects reporting
  • Supply Chain Management Practices to improve availability of quality components
  • Case Studies on Strategic Asset Management Programmes
  • What & How - Calculation of Risks Analyses in Rail Asset management
  • Signalling analysis methods, track layouts and railway capacity
  • Applications of track-based sensors and vehicle-based sensors
  • Maintenance Requirements during design, construction phases and before operations
  • Rail electrification systems maintenance
  • Address effect of weather/climate conditions on rail operational readiness: sand, flooding, extreme cold, soil condition, geotechnical movements
  • High speed rail maintenance

PIC – 40% cash back when you register for an Equip Global Conference or Training Course

The objectives of the PIC Scheme are the same as those of Equip Global. Both support investment in innovation, productivity and continuous training.

If you are a registered business in Singapore, you can enjoy huge huge tax savings in the form of cash payouts and/or tax deductions when you invest in training of employees. Your attendance at any Equip Global conference or training course is eligible for PIC credits, either as a 40% cash refund or 400% tax deduction. We will provide you with full supporting documentation after the event and assist you in getting the claim completed.

Continuous training and upgrading of your employees is key to the success of your organization. What’s more, boost your tax savings and claim 40% of your registration fee by attending an Equip Global conference or training course today. To do so, follow this simple 5 minute process:

  1. Select, register and pay for your conference/training course of your choice
  2. Complete the PIC form which you can download here: http://www.iras.gov.sg/irasHome/uploadedFiles/Quick_Links/Tax_forms/Business_and_employers/Cash%20Payout%20Application%20Form_B2011_final.xls
  3. Attend the event, learn and network with industry peers
  4. File your receipt (which we will email you), record of attendance (which we will provide you at the event) and the completed PIC form with your accounts department which they will submit to IRAS to process the claim.
