ECM System for the Siarkopol Railway Transport Plant

Better process management
Improvement of repair processes
Effective data management

The Challenge

For this project, we needed to create a system supporting digital transformation at Siarkopol, which is part of the international group Greenbrier. We’ve helped digitize one of the company’s key areas.

We built a solution that allows for efficient management of repair processes and the leasing of rolling stock. The company’s own rolling stock consists of 350 traction units, which are maintained by a 30-person team.

  • The main need we defined was to support and improve the management of processes of maintenance and lease of railway vehicles.
  • An important aspect of the implementation was to enable the registration and recording of rolling stock maintenance activities and keeping a list of components and measuring instruments, including in terms of their rental.
  • Another significant functionality was the automatic creation of schedules and distribution of tasks among employees. It was also important to provide users with information on current issues and the progress of repair work.
  • Given the scope and scale of the company's operations, another essential element of the implementation was the integration of multiple data sources about carriages and ensuring easy access to the documentation and history of individual rolling stock elements.

"The comprehensive solution has been successfully implemented thanks to the close cooperation of the Unity Group with our team. We are satisfied with both this process and the final effect, so we highly recommend Unity Group services."

The Solution

  • As part of the digital transformation, we built and implemented the solution using proven Microsoft technologies.
  • Registers and reports – Several data registers were created as part of the system. The most important is the electronic list of wagons, components and tools. It contains their usage history, repair schedules and forecasts as well as full technical documentation.
  • The system allows the user to register leases contracted by the company and provides the capacity to generate integrated reports for internal and external use.
  • It also supports company employees in the daily maintenance of their own and other entities’ rolling stock. It allows them to record information about activities such as inspections and repairs in accordance with applicable maintenance documentation.
  • Forecasting and managing the repair process – The tool allows users to create repair forecasts based on a schedule, as well as to generate to-do lists, and work and tool cards.
