1 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission WP 1: Specification and evaluation criteria. Ted Luiten, ProRail AUTOMAIN dissemination seminar, Paris, October 4,

2 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Basic SE structure 2

3 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission International benchmark  Desktop study  Reviewing results of other (EU-)projects.  International questionnaire  To the involved IMs  Followed by a second, more detailed questionnaire.  Investigation in road network maintenance. 3

4 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Benchmark results No overall state-of-the-art to be formulated.  Overall ways of working are different  Improving possession planning is a common theme.  The assessment of asset condition is a shared field of interest.  No practices found in highway engineering that are transferable to rail. 4

5 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Future developments Main characteristic Optimisation of existing technology and working methods. Upcoming new technologies and new working methods. Major technology shift. Development drivers  Cost reduction  Improving sustainability  Improved reliability.  Important effects to be expected from the relative position of railway against cars and lorries as accepted means of transportation.  Further cost reduction. Improvement of cost/performance ratios.  Further improved sustainability,  Integration of different means of transport (smooth transition between bus, tram, train, car).  Main shift in supporting technology in ICT (rather than in conventional systems).  Important shift in technical systems is necessary to keep railway in business. Railway characteristics  Differentiation between lines based on different users and user patterns.  Standardisation of applied technical systems.  Definition of “infraconcepts”, meaning several types of infrastructure meeting several types of usage.  Strong reduction of the complexity of the railway system.  Interoperability will be of growing importance.  Maximum speed will not increase, but differences in speed will be reduced.  Differentiation in technical systems based on chosen infraconcepts.  New technical concepts will become visible.  ICT-systems will enable the optimisation of the transport system,  ERTMS available on the main corridors.  Interoperability is an integral demand; the infrastructure has to support that completely.  Maximum speed will probably be much higher than current maximums, an estimate in not available..  Enhance acceleration of local trains in order to reduce the differences in speed between local and long distance trains.  Electrical trains will use other sytems than catenary for energy transport.  No more outside signalling. All controls will be train borne.  Unmanned trains and cars (no active drivers required).  New systems???? Maintenance operational concepts.  Maintenance will be differentiated according to chosen infraconcepts (such as freight lines, main commuter lines, secondary lines etc).  Operational cost reduction.  Condition measurements automated.  Design for maintenance enforced on object level e.g. by introducing “pull and plug” solutions.  Less disturbances, more preventative activities.  Visualisation of maintenance and maintenance necessities is based on geographical oriented man-machine interfaces.  ICT supported track access for maintenance, reducing preparation times.  Advanced condition monitoring feeding real-time decision support systems in which advanced knowledge about behaviour is embedded.  Design for maintenance commonly used in object and in lay-out design.  Extremely advanced knowledge about system behaviour and how to influence that by maintenance is available in the sector.  Condition monitoring and decision support embedded in system design. 5

6 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Consortium discussions. What did we derive from this? 6 Benchmark Future vision Functional and capability requirements. KPIs Innovation evaluation criteria.

7 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission KPIs 7 Measuring the effects on the overall capacity. Capacity gain defined as the reduction of unavailability due to maintenance, inspection and repairs.

8 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Functional and capability requirements A set of 21 requirements has been defined, segregated per future period (2026, 2036, 2051). 8

9 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission For each innovation a set of evaluation criteria has been defined. Innovation evaluation criteria. 9

10 A Joint Research Project funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission Conclusions  The process leading to criteria and requirements seems to be rather fuzzy.  But the discussions clarifies to all participants what we want to achieve,  The exact formulation of it is very useful to manage the program as a whole.  Criteria have formally been accepted by the commission. 10
