    Abstract

    Rolling stock critical system failures require condition based maintenance (CBM) policy to optimise maintenance tasks and hence improve reliability and availability of service operation. In this paper, the implementation of CBM analysis for Class 158 Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) train door system is presented. The condition monitoring of the door system information collected falls into the category of partially observable systems. Condition monitoring trial results of the doors is presented to show specific signs of door deterioration and repeating failures. A stochastic signal pulse model is proposed that could utilize CBM information to schedule optimum cost effective maintenance strategy.
