The Condition Based Supply Chain (CBSC) is Unipart Rail’s vision for the rail network – a concept that involves the seamless management of real-time data and information, combined with multiple data sources relating to the asset, to deliver increased operational efficiencies and maintenance savings.
CBSC draws on our position in the supply chain and an integrated digital ecosystem that turns data into actionable information to drive targeted maintenance, a highly responsive supply chain and continuous product and service improvement.
CBSC offers the management of data and information, combined with data sources from the asset and the supply chain to deliver increased operational efficiencies and maintenance savings.
‘On asset’ sensors are one source of data, but other information can be used to help monitor and predict the need for replacement parts which can then be delivered just in time to where they are needed.
The use of digital technology to improve the effectiveness of the supply chain will have a large impact on the rail industry performance imperatives – Cost, Carbon, Customer and Capacity.
