The “Transition” of the PTO fleets, under target for 2030, analyzed by means of some robust models
The PTO organization network for the buses management are the main arena for a good resolution of this challenge. Main objective of this paper is to delivery some tested and clear methodological models for evaluation of the operational strategy of the PTO by the correlation of:
-Sustainability fleet development (traction system & depot activities) vs fleet maintenance in-out sourcing;
-maintenance knowledge vs fleet age and technical characteristic;
-dynamic analysis from now to 2030 of different improvement plans of one specific buses fleet;
-eBus charge characteristic vs exploitation and depot activities.
This models was developed by University of Bologna and applied in Tper spa strategic analysis, since ’90, and are in use for training and strategic choices in different PTO companies.By using those frameworks each PTO can understand well his specific journey from yesterday (!) to 2030
