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.

    Message from the chair

    XI RCM SG has links to both WSIC and DISIC. We help the rail industry to put in place appropriate remote condition monitoring systems to meet its strategic objectives. We provide advice on the impact this can have on organisations’ business, technical, commercial, innovation and guidance.
