Keep Your Locomotive On Track!
Buying markets have changed drastically in the last 50 years. Businesses and families have altered their buying habits from replacing a product when it is unrepairable to now purchasing the latest-and-greatest items instead of putting in resources for repair. Products that are more expensive tend to have fewer resources allocated to them and get left to operate until the unfixable happens, which can be more costly in the long run.
The rail industry has relied on internal and external resources for their engine overhaul needs. Based on business conditions and strategies, the pendulum swings from in-house to outsource. The transitions often create quality problems as both entities struggle to find and train the people they hire. Hiring knowledgeable experts can be challenging as railroads hustle to put power on the tracks. Updating locomotives with current technologies to gain the benefits modernization and digitization can bring everything to an idle.
