Rail Alliance – Special Event, York
18th August 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Network Rail Infrastructure – Design for Reliability & Product Acceptance
Kevin Rayment CEng FIMechE, Reliability Process Manager, Network Rail
Following a successful seminar in London, Rail Alliance in partnership with Network Rail are pleased to present this essential knowledge to the Northern region.
A key function of its Product Acceptance regime, Design for Reliability is now a mandatory requirement for any controlled, fixed infrastructure product procured by Network Rail.
Kevin Rayment, together with NR’s Product Acceptance division will host a working seminar to explain what this means for the rail supply chain. Whether your company is an existing or a prospective supplier, awareness and adoption of the DFR process is essential – this is a mandated, structured procedure for how NR expects suppliers to demonstrate reliability using proven tools and will influence decisions made at PQQ and ITT stages of procurement. This will be an interactive discussion where concerns and questions will be openly addressed.
The event will cover:
Design For Reliability – explanation of the concept and Network Rail’s rationale
Whole Life Cost modelling
FMEAs: Learning from past experiences
Measurement equipment requirements
Maintenance schedule development
The DFR process
Procedures for newly designed products vs. product changes
Data capture, analysis and Corrective Action Plans
Hosted and partnered by Rail Alliance this event is free to attend, and is essential for any business with Network Rail as a current customer or in scope.
