Field Maintenance Engineering supports product lines Fleet Maintenance (FM), with main focus on TRAXX fleets, but not only. 

•    Have a complete understanding of the maintenance regime of rolling stock fleets;
•    Collect and appraise in-service field data (failure data and all other maintenance related data, within several FM projects) in accordance with AT procedures and tools;

•    Provide verified and consistent RAM&LCC information (raw and elaborated data) to Fleet Engineering for the study of opportunities and the preparation of new FM offers/bids;
•    Proactively contribute to achieve and keep contractual RAM&LCC performances all over the contract duration, including analyse the failure mode and the identification of the critical systems and subsystem (driving the evaluation of items to monitor by prognostic analysis);

•    Provide systematic inputs on operation performance improvement, Life Cycle Cost management and technical clearance;
•    Contribute to the implementation and validation of prognostic algorithms to identify the health (degradation and Remaining Useful Life) of the critical systems, to promote the Condition Based Maintenance strategy;
