The number of requirements specified for reliability and safety of European rail engineering is constantly rising. Accreditation bodies are increasingly asking for detailed proof of quality, for example, RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety) analysis for products and services. Our experts can carry out RAMS analyses of your rail system for you. We inspect your technology and company based on international norms, allowing you to get ahead of the competition.
With an assessment of your safety management system and RAMS analyses from TÜV Rheinland you can:
For certification procedures, our experts offer a multitude of services designed to help you fulfill safety and quality standards. These include:
RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety) analyses are increasingly important – and required – for homologation procedures. Based on earlier forms of rail engineering, there was only one initial safety requirement – that a component was either relevant for safety or not. No secondary safety inspection would be carried out. However, today, according to CENELEC standards, the European Committee for Electrotechnical Norms standards rail systems are inspected on the basis of RAMS analyses based on compliance with the definable safety steps: SIL for short - Safety Integrity Level. This demands a high level of technical system knowledge, coupled with experience in the field of statistic and probability theory analysis.
