In terms of wheelsets there are perceived to be three circumstances under which
they may be supplied, these are:

New build

relating to where wheelsets are being supplied to new trains


replacing existing wheelsets during routine bogie overhaul with
replacement new, overhauled or repaired wheelsets.


out of course replacement of wheelsets with replacement new,
overhauled or repaired wheelsets due to failures or defects being
observed during inspection.

Each type of supply will involve a different route through the supply chain however,
the working parameters and controls should remain fundamentally the same.

The key activities that are included within each of these supply chain types comprise:

Requirements the ability to specify the characteristics and performance of the
components, sub assembly or overall installation


the ability to meet the requirements by way of appropriate design
incorporating appropriate standards


the ability to commercially specify the requirements and design
features as well as source appropriate qualified supply routes

Manufacture the ability to make the product in accordance with the procurement
specification and demonstrate that the requirements are met by
appropriate testing


the adoption of appropriate procedures and guidelines to install new
or replaced products.


the application of routine servicing and repair logistics as per the
designed requirements and specifications, including overhaul activity

The interaction between these key activities should be supported by a full and
auditable work process and change management system.
