How should you respond to the increasing pressure for cost reduction in industry and government organisations? What skills should you be developing right now? How much can be saved by bringing electronics repair in-house? In a first-of-its-kind webinar hosted by ABI Electronics, we heard from four international guest speakers who shared valuable insights and inspired everyone in the audience to be passionate about modern electronics repair.
ALSTOM Transport Case review:
Extending the life of rail electronics with BoardMaster from ABI
Alstom’s engineering leader Kanat Mamonov shares some great insights into his local project involving the lifecycle support of 27 KAZ4ac locomotives. It is a truly inspirational piece that challenges the mindset behind the following false statements:
1) “Rail electronics can’t be repaired if you don’t have sufficient documentation available.”
2) “I don’t have the “software” of the circuit board therefore there’s nothing I can do about it. Just throw it in the bin!”
3) “Investing in the development of internal repair capabilities costs too much money and would take too long!”
More than 80% of faulty boards involve device failure and not software-related issues because their brain is always protected well.
