10 The Changing World 10

11 3. The Changing World We will operate differently in the future Less manual inspection of work Predictive & condition based maintenance Real time data streams Processes that produce less service variance Processes that are fast & create capacity Continued focus on improving environmental performance and reducing community impacts 11

12 3. The Changing World Compelling reasons to innovate: Growth! Freight doubles over the next twenty years Global supply chains even more critical Passenger rail has similargrowth; especially inurban centres Intercity passenger rail also grows rapidly 12

13 3. The Changing World Compelling Reasons to Innovate Cumulative Rail Industry Retirements, ,000 12,250 12,000 10,000 10,000 7,750 8,000 6,000 5,500 4,000 2,250 2, Opportunities Demographics Service reliability Efficiency Capacity English Language 13 French Language

14 3. The Changing World Predictive technology will improve planning and reduce costs Less manual inspection work Real time data streams enable Transition from reactive to predictive maintenance Better planning New processes Improve safety Reduce service variances Create capacity WILD Site 14

15 3. The Changing World Targeted implementation of cost saving technologies Top of rail lubrication Reduce track and wheel wear Fuel savings Ultrasonic rail flaw detection Identify defects before failure Improve serviceandcapacity capacity Wheel impact load detectors Decrease stress on rail Predictable wheel change out Top of rail lubrication 15

16 3. The Changing World Smart adoption of technology will transform how we work (Human Resource Strategy) Testing new wayside technologies Collectingbetterinformation information on equipment health Enabling planned maintenance and redeployment of manpower 16

17 3. The Changing World Emerging Opportunity Infrastructure monitoring Testing continuous monitoring technology to create capacity 17

18 Public Policy Implications 18

19 4. Public Policy Implications Canadian rail industry is seeking partnership with government to advance and accelerate industry innovation What We Need for Rail to Reach its Full Potential Commercial Framework Innovation and regulation are interdependent; technology drives operational changes Bottom Line: In order to meet future demands, the rail industry needs a regulatory environment that allows for increased innovation Regulatory Balance Policy Alignment Public Support Level Playing Field 19
