Maintenance and testing protocols in the railway industry
This paper introduces new maintenance and testing protocols regarding processes in the railway industry. The first protocol is general and can be applied to industries working in similar production processes. The second and third protocols are more specific to the railway industry and concern the turning-machine production line and the pneumatic testing of train braking systems, respectively. This study has been conducted within the framework of industry research on the design of intelligent control and actuation systems suitable for auto-adaptive Industry 5.0 facilities.
