Cross-Industry Remote Condition Monitoring Group
The purpose of this sub group is to provide a strategic lead on cross-industry Remote Condition Monitoring matters. Key to this role is to identify the blockers to the realisation of the whole system reliability game-changer identified in the consultation for Rail Technical Strategy 2 in this area and propose strategic solutions. Annex A outlines the key four blockers.
The sub group was given a remit from SIC Chairs to "Develop the principles of what the industry wants to achieve (information requirements etc.) in each of the 4 quadrants of the Intelligent Infrastructure Strategy where there is a cross industry aspect". This has culminated in the development of eight key principles and an associated activity list for Cross Industry Remote Condition
Monitoring. These Eight Principles are:
- Principles are applied to Remote Condition Monitoring (RCM) activities in any of the four quadrants where there is x-industry impact
- Business cases shall include all x-industry elements including evaluation of benefits and costs
- An end to end x-industry RCM operating model (including processes and contracts) is clearly described and agreed (defined shape
- Solutions shall conform to x-industry RCM Reference Architecture
- Network wide enablers (e.g. processes, technology, standards) are justified separately from solution projects but aligned with their plans (funding/delivery)
- X-industry RCM standards shall be applied to technical solutions and business processes
- Application of these x-industry RCM Principles has governance that is industry recognised
- Business as Usual (BAU) procurement activities should consider application of x-industry RCM principles.
