A Transit Methodology Using Six Sigma for Heavy Rail Vehicle Maintenance Programs

This research central purpose was to develop a methodology for determining how substantial public resources should be invested so that rail transit operations can be improved relative to capital and operating efficiencies. However, the goal was to use a proven methodology tool (Six Sigma) for increasing productivity and apply it in a transit environment to improve and sustain capital and operating efficiencies. Application of the transit methodology using Six Sigma was accomplished by conducting a Case Study of Miami-Dade Transit Process Improvement and the Six Sigma Initiative, with emphasis on rail car maintenance.
