Executive summary VolkerRail used a mobile application and supporting web-based platform by eviFile to streamline data capture for multiple surveys
Overhead Line Electrification (OLE)
Covering complex processes in the field, as well as very simple form data capture – eviFile can deliver a completely digital OLE project.
From capturing trial hole data linked to your design platform right through to wire runs, eviFile can be used as the complete Golden Thread for your assurance needs.
Your end to end OLE solution
from field data collection to real time project insights
eviFile lends itself well to very simple programmes of work (proof), as well as the extremely complex (enterprise). For the MML programme with SPL, eviFile created a complex workflow for more than 2,500 assets, all with 20+ activities of work required to sign before the structure was deemed completed.
For the GWEP, eviFile created and managed more than 500,000 individual items of assurance evidence, quality check sheets and photographs.

Disciplines and Experience
Covering all infrastructure disciplines, project sizes and use cases
Working closely with Volker Rail on the TPW programme has seen more new developments in rail with workflows developed for Grip2 surveys, Permanent Way (P-Way) as well as new data migration tools, designed to dramatically reduce the amount of data silos on each project and mean that eviFile becomes the one stop solution for all assurance data required by Network Rail at the end of each project.
The focus of eviFile’s approach in OLE is to focus on the needs of the engineer in the field through mobile app, while also considering the reporting needs of the project. Complex engineering assurance and quality data can be collected on any device in real time. Power BI reports are updated in real time covering items installed, quality issues and referrals, quant data and shift reports.
All these data feeds can overwhelm a project and often not deliver value for the project team. eviFile’s onboarding team work closely with the site and management teams to deliver project insights rather than data overload. This approach delivers a tailored solution across projects and enables lessons learned to be implemented in an agile way, to constantly improve project delivery.

The entire OLE team are able to use eviFile whether on site with the mobile app or using the web interface in head office.
Allocating work through eviFile to the team of engineers on-site the Construction Manager can track that activities are delivered safely, on time and budget
Collaborating with Construction Managers and Supervisors using eviFile the OLE Engineer can ensure all elements of electrification works are delivered in line with scope
The Supervisor can build a systematic inspection and maintenance schedule (planned and preventative) ensuring that the OLE infrastructure and associated equipment is maintained through the life of the assets.
High level outcomes of using the system were:
eviFile brings efficiencies across the whole OLE project life cycle, from design and planning, through construction to asset management
Integrate with possession planners to ensure all aspects of works are planned within specified timescale
Establish, maintain and report against programme for construction activities through the OLE project life cycle
Collaborate with contractors, sub-contractors, the client and senior management
Manage quality issues, DOWLs, NCR’s and export data into proprietary Network Rail systems
Assess actual completed works versus planned in real time
