Master plan T for reorienting the rail technology & services board division
The task of the Rail Technology and Services Board division, which was established in the fall of 2009, is to ensure a technically flawless, environmentally friendly and economical railway system. In order to fulfill these Group-wide tasks, the Rail Technology and Services Board division is undergoing a reorientation, which began during the year under review. The Master plan T project was introduced for this purpose. The goal of the project is to orient the Rail Technology and Services Board division toward the demands of the market and internal customers.
The roll-out of the Master plan T project ensures that issues with high operational and strategic urgency take priority. The first wave, through the middle of the year under review, focused on analyzing the previous integrated rail system, including the areas of rail operations, technology, procurement and quality. All of the units in the Rail Technology and Services Board division were examined using an identical process. The investigation included analyzing the initial situation in the performance areas and determining the necessary further developments as well as any new orientation potentially required as a result. Master plan T was introduced into the TechnologyOptimizationProgram (TOP) during the second half of the year under review. TOP is the implementation program for reorientation issues that need to be addressed. TOP ensures that the department’s established goals are reached; it is accompanied by comprehensive further-education measures and an extensive change management process.
The reorganization of the Rail Technology and Services Board division includes appointing a Chief Technology Officer for the technical rail system, a Chief Procurement Officer for procurement, and a Chief Quality Officer for the safety and quality management system.
