Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) efficiency in the maintenance of their subways that are Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) is the largest municipal transport company in the German-speaking. The maintenance of passenger and commercial vehicles is an important task to ensure the operation. Alone for the Metro 660 employees at four locations perform maintenance, i.e. the maintenance, inspection, repair, and improvement of vehicles. Also used on a majority of vehicle assemblies and vehicle equipment in the four workshops, individual components are manufactured themselves. To increase transparency about the plans to improve the efficiency in the maintenance, the locations of the Department the U-rail workshops were merged by the organizationally BVG, the preparation is now centrally managed. And one of the first tasks was to create transparency about the numerous content and formally very different work plans as a condition for the optimization of the work plan. Goals were a regulated transparent process for the creation, management and maintenance of work plans, a uniform data base both for the production/PP as also the maintenance/PM, a single, modular, and construction group-oriented work plan structure, as well as a significantly lower expenses for the maintenance of work plans, as well as for the determination of standard times.
On such a basis, then a time planning software is how meaningful use CAPP knowledge of Munich-based IT service provider DMC, so Robert Opitz, head of production planning and logistics at the BVG area underground workshops. The SAP add-on fulfilled the requirements of the BVG on the IT support in the preparation, including a central create, deploy and maintain steps/tasks to the figure of maintenance measures, taking into account various criteria such as component, vehicle series, plant, material number together with a corresponding search or selection function, the multiple use of single (sub) operations in different parent Operations/work plans or a change history. Introducing software served as a good occasion for the unification and centralization of the scheduling and the drastic reduction of the circle of those entitled to change, so Opitz.
