IMPROVEMENT OF PERFORMANCE AND RATIONALISATION OF THE TECHNICAL SERVICES FOR WAGONS ON THE GERMAN FEDERAL RAILWAY

LEISTUNGSVERBESSERUNG UND RATIONALISIERUNG IM TECHNISCHEN WAGENDIENST DER DEUTSCHEN BUNDESBAHN

For technical monitoring of freight cars and containers in operation, maintenance and cleaning, DB employs 4,500 rolling stock inspectors in its car inspection department and 7,500 male and female staff in the car cleaning department. To improve performance and rationalize these tasks, a new system for inspecting cars and containers in operation has been set up and will be subjected to various tests. A similar study is being carried out in the coach inspection department. Since 1979 staff have been trying out a new cleaning system, which is expected to be officially introduced in 1981.
