Beijing-Guangzhou High-Speed Rail Test is Not Comprehensive, Causing Fire on the Roof to Toss Thousa
The Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway, the longest journey in the world, has been in continuous condition after less than a month of opening to traffic. A Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed rail train caught fire on its roof near Xinyang, Henan, and it was shut down twice due to power outages, which affected more than a thousand passengers.
The Wuhan Railway Bureau stated that the cause of the failure was the severe smog in Xinyang. The dirt accumulated on the electric porcelain bottle of the train corroded the surface of the electric wire, and the moisture in the dense fog attached to the dirt to form a conductive channel, which caused the electric porcelain bottle to be broken down. Interrupted.
This accident reflects that the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed rail’s product design test before its opening to traffic is not comprehensive enough to include all existing harsh environments, such as haze weather. In fact, in the modern quality management system, the design confirmation requirements of product design have been clearly stipulated: the product must meet the intended use.
In the past, TQM has also assisted world-class companies, such as Siemens Electric in Shanghai, to carry out and strengthen the reliability of their products in the product development and production stages to ensure that the results of design and development can meet the expected use and achieve customer satisfaction.
Foreign products are constantly improving daily, and their national standards are the minimum requirements to ensure that the products maintain high-quality levels. In order to further improve products in China, my country’s national standards should not be regarded as the highest level, and international standards should be taken as the goal to improve product quality and lead the world.
