How a global leader in transportation industry managed to save 40 working hours per vehicle
Digitization Success Story of Bombardier: digitised quality processes and traceable testing documentation
How it worked at Bombardiers'
In 2016, Bombardier Vienna launches a 6 month test program with Testify, with the aim to improve the process of the final inspections of trams. Since that testify is a fixed part of the quality control system.
The intial challenges at start:
Software Challenge: Vehicle Security is top priority. Complexity of the product, high quality standards and low-batch size production, is the quality control system that needs to be developed and help to not forget any quality checks.
Documentation Challenge: quick reactions in case of error is key. Yet, the occurrence of an issue triggered a cumulative process of documenting defects, attaching images and assigning new tasks. Data integration of 3rd party systems what time-consuming and did not happen software automated. This raises another source of error.
Bombardier is a global leader in the transportation industry, continuously striving to set new standards in the sustainable production of train and plane vehicles. Their product range covers the full spectrum of railborne vehicles, vehicle components as well as signaling and control technology. Bombardier combines technology expertise with empathy and innovation and thus creates benefits to operators, passengers and the estate.
While Bombardier's HQ is based in Berlin, one of their worldwide engineering sites is based in Vienna, Austria. Here, more than 600 employs are focusing on the design and manufacture of trams and light rail vehicles for the world market.
