Smart community infrastructures - Principles and requirements for performance metrics
|Publication Date:||1 May 2015|
|ICS Code (Environmental economics. Sustainability):||13.020.20|
This Technical Specification gives principles and specifies requirements for the
- optimization, and
of community infrastructure performance metrics, and gives recommendations for analysis, including
- safety, and
- security of community infrastructures.
Community infrastructures include, but are not limited to, energy, water, transportation, waste, and ICT.
The principles and requirements of this Technical Specification are applicable to communities of any size sharing geographic areas that are planning, commissioning, managing, and assessing all or any element of its community infrastructures. However, the selection and the importance of metrics or (key) performance indicators of community infrastructures is a result of the application of this Technical Specification and depends on the characteristics of each community.
In this Technical Specification, the concept of smartness is addressed in terms of performance relevant to technologically implementable solutions, in accordance with sustainable development and resilience of communities as defined in ISO/TC 268.
NOTE 1 This Technical Specification recognizes that solutions for similar problems in communities in different economic situations (e.g. developed and developing countries) can call for different importance of metrics or performance indicators of community infrastructures. This Technical Specification is not a recommendation document for best practices. This Technical Specification does not recommend, e.g. replicating existing specific smart infrastructures or leveling them up to the standards of such model projects at a large scale. It is left to the users whether setting targets or not when applying this Technical Specification.
NOTE 2 Though this Technical Specification does not address principles or requirements specific to a particular type of community infrastructures, compatibility of this Technical Specification with existing International Standards for a particular type of community infrastructure (e.g. ISO 24510:2007, ISO 24511:2007, and ISO 24512:2007) was considered.
NOTE 3 This Technical Specification does not address measurement, reporting or verification. For possible deliverables related to this Technical Specification, see ISO/TR 37150:2014, Clause 6. This Technical Specification is not into comparing different communities, but to allow communities to assess community infrastructures more effectively.
