Implementation and Management

Implementation Approach

BEA has significant experience in the management of the design and implementation of fare collection projects and understands the need for senior level management visibility and control, both to ensure good internal management of the project and to keep the client fully informed as to the project status.

Project control systems and procedures give BEA managers the tools to monitor and evaluate program performance, and to identify issues and take corrective action as they arise. These management and control procedures can be broken down into the following elements:

  • Project management tools to monitor timely completion of tasks, deliverables and issues; a project schedule using Microsoft Project will be implemented

  • Risk assessment process to identify and manage potential project risk.

  • Change control procedures, both externally and internally to BEA.

  • Management of resources to ensure proper staffing for timely completion of project deliverables and on-going evaluation of resource loading to accommodate peak loading requirements.

  • Focus on quality assurance.

 

Installation

As part of the project, BEA will perform all required tasks to fulfill the installation on all vehicles including:

  • Installation design

  • Ergonometric assessment

  • Installation preparation

  • Wiring installation

  • Existing Farebox removal

  • Farebox Installation

  • Testing


Testing

The system will be through a series of tests throughout the entire project, each one designed to verify or assess the quality, functionality and performance of the system as per the specifications.

Training

The training for the system will be completed using a “Train the Trainers” philosophy in which BEA will train selected employees, usually supervisors and/or the system administrator. These people will in turn train the users, such that all employees will have the information and skills needed to operate, maintain and support the system in an efficient and reliable way. BEA will train the designated employee(s) who will operate the Farebox, Fare Collection and the Central System.

Schedule

BEA will propose a schedule based on the following considerations:

  • Software is a “Turn-Key” installation; therefore is no need for a lengthy deployment.

  • Installation can be achieved as little as one week, depending on the complexity.

  • BEA past experiences with similar size and functionality systems

  • Equipment availability

 

Support Services

One important characteristic that has distinguished BEA in every project delivered is the commitment that BEA gives to each and every project and the constant after-sale support. This is not only in terms of maintenance, but also in terms of modifications and operational support. This commitment has won high praise from our customers

Maintenance

All of the BEA manufactured devices are designed so that any preventive or corrective maintenance can be performed quickly in order to minimize any interruption to the transit operation or inconvenience to the passengers. The preventive maintenance of the devices can be achieved quickly as it generally involves cleaning the surface of the devices or blowing dust from the coin or bill acceptor.
