  1. 1. Presented by Dr Stuart Thomson, CEO – Rail Manufacturing CRC Investigating the Current State of Australia’s Technology Innovations and the Impact on Depot Design and Development
  2. 2. About the Rail Manufacturing CRC Working to foster, sponsor and direct collaborative research and commercialisation partnerships in rail manufacturing • We facilitate university engagement, co-fund projects (50:50) and manage projects • Established in 2014, the Centre will operate for six years, funded by the Business Cooperative Research Centres Programme of the Federal Government’s Department of Industry, Innovation and Science
  3. 3. Our Participants include
  4. 4. • Interoperability • Information transparency: Data and data aggregation • Automation: Data processing and operations • Decentralised decisions: Automation of decision making Future trends in rail – Industry 4.0
  5. 5. Rail Manufacturing CRC research themes Energy and cost efficiency and improved competitive performance in advanced rail manufacturing through research, development and commercialisation in: • Energy Regeneration and Storage • Advanced Braking Systems • Electronic Motor and Systems Competitive cost, durability and performance in advanced rail manufacturing through research and commercialisation in: • High performance materials for heavy haul and passenger rail • Advanced Manufacturing and Maintenance • Advanced, lightweight materials • Low Cost Manufacturing Systems Safety and efficiency in advanced rail manufacturing to enhance industry competitiveness through research and commercialisation in: • Advanced Design and Simulation • Automated Health Monitoring • Advanced Data Analysis and Information Systems • Advanced Operations Management Systems • Energy Use Management Tools
  6. 6. CRRC / CSIRO • Supercapacitor Energy Management System • Supercapacitor Development and Scale up for Manufacture • High Energy Supercapacitor Development • Supercapacitor Energy Management System Stage 2 Sigma / CSIRO • Accelerated Life Testing and Characterisation of Critical Components Bombardier / UQ • Axle bearing Maintenance Optimisation • Monitoring and Control of Bearing wear UGL / UoW • Manufacturing Processes for Rolling Stock Fabrication OneSteel / Monash • Advanced Steel Development for Rail and Sleepers ACRI / Tyre Stewardship / UoW • Performance of recycled rubber inclusions for improved stability of railways Downer / UTS • Integrated Passenger Behaviour, Train Operations Diagnostics and Vehicle Condition Monitoring System Airlinx / RMIT • Key Ventilation issues affecting Air Quality and Thermal Comfort in Train Cars Rail Manufacturing CRC projects
  7. 7. • Condition Monitoring and the Internet of Things (IoT) • Virtual Reality: The move to haptic feedback systems for training, simulation and scenario modelling • Lightweight and more durable components for new and retro fitting • Passenger information systems - Decreasing dwell times - Increasing consumer knowledge and experience • Improved energy systems: Lithium batteries and super capacitors • Improved materials and processes: Couplers, wheels, bearings, rail and sleepers • Digital Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 Source: Thinxtra Future trends in rail

  11. 11. • Australian businesses ranked lowest in the OECD for collaboration on innovation with public research institutions • Less than 1% of those working in rail have R&D or science expertise • Many rail businesses lack dedicated in-house R&D resources The challenges facing rail industry Source: OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2013
  12. 12. The benefits of innovation and collaboration Australian businesses that collaborate are: 23% more likely to report increased productivity 24% more likely to report increased profitability 24% more likely to employ more people Source: Australian Innovation System Report 2015 • It’s key to production efficiency and wealth creation • Status quo is not an option - manufacturing is rapidly changing • Globalisation is both a threat and an opportunity
  13. 13. Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Rail Manufacturing (current) ca. 88 % of revenue = Tier 1 ca. 90% of total businesses exist in Tier 3 Opportunities (future) Golden era = constant demand Prime opportunity for local companies to invest in the future via innovation Opportunities
  14. 14. 1. The key to innovation is having qualified STEM people (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) 2. Rail needs to embrace new skills in IT, automation, IoT, materials, Industry 4.0, etc. 3. Numerous programs, including the Rail Manufacturing CRC, exist to support the rail industry to develop and adopt innovation Key takeaways
