The maintenance of rolling stock in general and coaching stock in particular in Railway systems is a critical aspect to ensure safe, reliable, and efficient train operations. Rolling stock, including locomotives, coaches, and wagons, undergoes significant wear and tear during their operational lifecycle, necessitating timely and effective maintenance procedures. With the continuous increase in the number of these assets growing day by day, the related data is getting enormously very big in size. These data are quite voluminous to be analyzed by conventional methodologies and warrants modern web tools so that effective decisions could be taken in a time-bound manner. Timely availability of accurate data is key to effective decision-making in the process of maintenance of rolling stock and quick decision-making during effective train operation. Furthermore, the integration of modern technologies, enable railway operators to adopt a data-driven approach to decision-making, facilitating more informed and efficient maintenance strategies. In conclusion, the proposed web-based resource management system as a tool for the maintenance of Indian Railway rolling stocks will bring efficiency, data-driven decision-making, and proactive maintenance strategies to the railway industry. By harnessing the power of technology and real-time data, the tool empowers maintenance teams to operate with greater effectiveness, ultimately improving the reliability, safety, and performance of the entire railway network.
