Building on Indec’s extensive experience in major rolling stock programs including the New Generation Rollingstock Operational Readiness Program, Indec provided independent certification for the design and testing of a suite of 14 modifications packages.
Indec provided independent certification services of the design and manufacturing process of the 75 structurally modified New Generation Rollingstock passenger trains to ensure compliance with the Commonwealth Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport 2002.
With a primary focus on the design stage of the project, the project called on our subject matter experts for the verification of interior-toilets, carbody shell, interior-saloon interior and gangways, brakes and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning.
A key challenge has been the need to understand and manage the interests of a large number of stakeholders while ensuring our independence is maintained at all times. We have been able to blend facilitation, negotiation, and technical engineering skills to bring all stakeholders together through informal and formal meetings to agree and certify the design documentation in an accelerated 10-month design, review and certification process.
