Abstract:Arriva Tog Danmark operates six train lines in Central and West Jutland and serves approximately 6.5 million train passengers each year. Maintenance on the 43 Alstom Lint trains is mostly done by their own mechanics in the Arriva work shops in Varde and Struer. This gives a large amount of flexibility and opportunities to reduce maintenance costs, but of course brings along the responsibility of making sure the trains are maintained well and have as little failures as possible. This report is the final product of my four-month during internship at Arriva Tog Danmark at the office in Varde. The internship consisted of two assignments regarding the failures of the Lint trains and are both included in this report. First the unplanned maintenance data was analysed. Besides giving Arriva Tog an insight in their unplanned maintenance tasks, this also resulted in recommendations about storing the failure data in the future. In the second assignment, a Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) with Maintenance Feedback Analysis (MFA) was done on the Power Pack of the Lint trains. These analyses gave opportunities for making changes to the maintenance planning and more recommendations about what kind of data and how failure data can be stored.
