In parallel with the ongoing R & D studies in TÜLOMSAS, Ge Digital Transformation Workshop for Locomotives AS was realized within the scope of Digital Transformation studies. Turkey Locomotive and Engine Industry Corporation (TÜLOMSAŞ) and Eskişehir Osmangazi University (Eskisehir Osmangazi) workshop held in collaboration with;
TÜLOMSAŞ General Manager Mr. Hayri AVCI, Eskişehir Osmangazi University Rector. Dr. Prof. Dr. Kemal ŞENOCAK, Rector of Eskişehir Osmangazi University Dr. Ahmet ÇABUK, Osmangazi University Computer Engineering Department Assoc. Dr. Mr. Ahmet Yazıcı, Head of Rail Systems Cluster Mr. Kenan IŞIK, academicians, private sector and public stakeholders attended the meeting.
Speaking at the workshop, TÜLOMSAŞ General Manager Hayri AVCI said; ”We are launching digital transformation works in our company, we are ready as TÜLOMSAŞ facility, we are ready as labor force, we are strong in international negotiation and communication, TÜLOMSAŞ is a well-established organization with high knowledge, strong production facilities and capabilities, our system and facility certifications are OK, TÜLOMSAŞ should be in the digital world“ he said.
After the speeches, two sessions were held on standards and possible applications for locomotives, standards for diesel engines and components, and digital transformation.
TULOMSAS and DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
2017 was founded in March at the Digital Transformation Office (TÜLOMSAŞ), which was established with the participation of a staff from all departments in order to create corporate culture, information infrastructure and awareness.
making weekly meetings in the office, across the world and Turkey following the developments in this conceptual framework was discussed different aspects. In this respect, the working group has a more visionary perspective by participating in seminars and workshops organized by actors in different sectors.
In cooperation with Eskişehir Osmangazi University (ESOGÜ), 2018 was established in February in order to continue working with concrete projects and to create a road map in this regard. In this context, Computer Eng. Assoc. Dr. Consultancy with Ahmet Yazıcı has started.
Strategy and roadmap studies were carried out to support TULOMSAS mission and vision within the Digital Transformation Office. In the short, medium and long term, three projects are planned. The current situation study, TULOMSAS digitalization status and needs analysis were conducted within the scope of the determined projects. A variety of trainings have been provided by the faculty member on current issues and industry 4,0. Concrete roadmaps for these projects were developed.
Within the scope of the projects, as well as international companies operating in the sector, stakeholder meetings were held with companies that will contribute to national and domestic solutions in the process of digital transformation. In addition, ESOGÜ took place as a implementing partner in the R & D projects carried out in cooperation with the private sector on Smart Factories. Again, it was agreed that an EU project would be implemented in cooperation with ESOGU sector.
As TÜLOMSAS, it is planned to take part in national and international projects with the aim of realizing projects completed in road map and Digital Transformation.
In the studies carried out with the digital transformation team consisting of different units within the structure of TÜLOMSAŞ, the parameters that can be measured on the locomotive and some standards are examined. After the digital transformation, it is planned that the data collected in the locomotive components will be monitored and interpreted instantly, and the accumulated knowledge will be used for shaping future applications. In addition, it is aimed to operate decision-making mechanisms based on the data collected, to interpret, report and associate decisions with each other automatically.
