The chapter suggests an approach to the development of a quality management system (QMS) in loco service depots on traction rolling stock maintenance and repair. The proposed way for the QMS implementation may be introduced into the system of traction rolling stock maintenance and repair. The issue of improving the maintenance and repair quality is especially relevant for the operation of a high-tech traction rolling stock at a high complexity of design solutions. Analyzing and developing the solutions in terms of enhancing the traction rolling stock maintenance and repair with the use of quality assurance tools will make it possible to resolve optimal options for the implementation of maintenance and repair processes. Reducing rolling stock maintenance and repair costs can be implemented providing the update of existing repair processes and the ability to forecast the factors influencing risk formation. In this connection, the authors consider the problems relating to risk management introduction in a loco service depot. They provide the most reasonable approach toward the introduction of uncontrolled factor—“uncertainties”—risk management. The authors propose a mathematical model for the solution of one-criterion problems as one of the options for the selection of an optimal strategic decision on the business process building in the loco service depot. The chapter considers a decision-making approach on the basis of strategy and guarantee.
