LUL - S1213
Asset Remote Condition Monitoring
|Publication Date:||1 August 2017|
This standard applies:
• To new or updated RCM systems for railway and other transport systems
• To RCM systems that monitor the condition and performance of engineering Assets
• Only to RCM systems, not associated (interfaced) systems. A context diagram with system boundaries is produced below (figure 1).
This standard also aligns with London Underground (LU) standard S1042 'Asset Condition Reporting' and defines how the provision of data is used to support the optimal management of Asset maintenance, overhaul and replacement.
Note 1: RCM consists of 'the recording and subsequent use of Asset data to further business needs' and does not alter or take the place of statutory, safety inspection, testing or safety system monitoring.
The purpose of this standard is to specify the requirements for the design, delivery and management of Asset Remote Condition Monitoring (RCM) systems.
RCM systems support the efficient maintenance of the transport system infrastructure and provide contextual or background information to enable maintenance staff to make informed decisions.
The primary drivers behind fitting RCM Assets are to:
a) Optimise Asset availability
b) Achieve optimal maintenance efficiency
c) Optimise mean time to repair
d) Contribute to an Asset-condition (risk) approach to the management of Assets
e) Optimise Reliability
f) Optimise the transport services provided to customers.
