Availability Demonstration Plan_A.doc

Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link and City Air Terminal A started trip will be considered as missed trip if it exceeds the limit of arrival time as per Table 1 defined for the respective Demonstration Period at the terminal station because of a technical failure according to chapter 3.3. Delays caused by stalled trains will not considered as missed trip. Availability Performance will be calculated for each Demonstration Period and documented in the respective Demonstration Period Availability Note. A trip has to be considered as started if boarding of passengers for a respective scheduled train run has been started. A started trip will be considered as missed trip if it exceeds the limit of arrival time as per Table 1 defined for the respective Demonstration Period at the terminal station because of a technical failure according to chapter 3.3. The operational time of a Demonstration Period is considered as sum of all operating hours of passenger transportation performed within the Demonstration Period according to the actual time table.

2.1.3 Demonstration of APDP


The Availability Demonstration consist of 4 Stages each with 4 Demonstration Periods. The Stages 1 to 3 are progressive stages of availability growth in order to reach the highest requirements defined for Stage 4 which has the highest requirements. Therefore the requested Availability Performance in stages 1 to 3 is only are guide to finally reach the rarget availability performance in Stage 4. The Consortium will define the start of each Stage. During the execution of stage based on the daily evaluations by a Failure Recognition Board (s. chapter 3.1) all Demonstration Periods will be closed. The respective Stage will be closed when all Demonstration Periods are run. An overview of the defined Demonstration Periods to demonstrate the availability performance is given in the table below:

Therefore the operator has to demonstrate these figures.

2.2 Reliability
2.2.1 Reliability Objectives
The relevant requirements for the overall system reliability demonstration are defined in /V6P1/, chapters 2.3.4 (1), 2.3.4 (2), 2.3.6 (1) and 2.3.7 (1).

2.2.2 Reliability Parameter

Availability Demonstration Plan_A.doc

Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link and City Air Terminal defined for the respective Demonstration Period at the terminal station because of a random technical failure according to chapter 3.3. Delays caused by stalled trains will not considered as missed trip. The operational time of a Demonstration Period is considered as sum of all operating hours of passenger transportation performed within the Demonstration Period according to the actual time table. The MTBSAF will be calculated for the Availability Demonstration and documented in the respective Availability Demonstration Report.

2.2.3 Demonstration of MTBSAF


The MTBSAF will be demonstrated during the whole Availability Demonstration. The general approach to demonstrate the MTBSAF is: 1. Identification of all service affecting failures occurring during a Demonstration Period (including failures in the depot area for demonstration of SIG depot reliability requirements) 2. Identification of cause for the failure (s. chapter 3.3); allocation to the relevant subsystem if applicable 3. Documentation of relevant service affecting failures for Demonstration Period; Availability Stage and whole Availability Demonstration in the respective documents (s. chapters 3.6 and 3.7) 4. Calculation of the MTBSAF for the overall system during whole Availability Demonstration in the Availability Demonstration Report 5. Calculation of the MTBSAF for the subsystems as defined in their Reliability Demonstration Test Plan based on the documented relevant service affecting failures during the whole Availability Demonstration in the respective Reliability Demonstration Test Reports of the subsystems. This procedure is shown in Figure 1 below.

Availability Demonstration Plan_A.doc

Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link and City Air Terminal Generally it has to be noted that the demonstrated MTBSAF can not be used as evidence for MTBF predicted by the subsystems. On the other hand it can be assumed that the predicted MTBF of the subsystems are reached when the required availability can be demonstrated during the availability demonstration as defined in chapter 2.1.

2.3 Maintainability
2.3.1 Maintainability Objectives
The relevant MTTR requirements for the overall system are defined in /V6P1/, chapters 2.3.4 to 2.3.6. The relevant qualitative requirements for the overall system are defined in /V6P1/, chapter 2.3.5: (3) The following MTTR shall be achieved (a) 15 minutes for train-borne equipment (b) 15 minutes for train detection equipment (c) 30 minutes for other trackside equipment (d) 15 minutes for equipment located in equipment rooms or control rooms

2.3.2 Maintainability Parameter


A description of the MTTR is given in /MTTR/. The general approach and the detailed approach regarding MTTR for the overall system as defined in this document is repeated in the following chapters. The detailed approach for MTTRep per each subsystem is described in the respective test/demonstration document of the subsystems.

2.3.2.1 General Approach


As summarized in /MTTR/ requirements are defined regarding maintainability and restoring service of the transit system. These requirements have to be generally divided into requirements on the overall system level and requirements, which are relevant for the subsystems. For the subsystems the requirements are mainly maintenance centered and corresponding to the technical characteristics of the systems. They are additionally defined in particular specifications for the several subsystem. On the overall system level the requirements are revenue service centered and corresponding to the equipment that is required to perform revenue service after technical integration of the subsystems. An overview of this general interpretation is given in Figure 2 below.

Figure 2: General Approach

2.3.2.2 Contractual Requirements on the Overall System level


The MTTR that is requested in chapter 2.3.5 of /V6P1/ is a performance parameter of maintenance service provider and the operator. In order to optimize operational impacts of technical failures it specifies the time, which is needed to restore the operation of trains. There will be generally two possible ways to restore revenue service: rectification of a failure, so that a high level of revenue service is possible (according to chapter 4 of /MTTR/) or replacement of a failed element with a functioning one, as defined for the sub-systems

In that meaning the MTTR on the overall system level will be described as Mean Time To Restore with the objective to resume revenue service in the quickest possible way. For that also switching to redundant equipment will be considered as restore activity. The MTTR will be considered for the failures as mentioned in clause (2) of chapter 2.3.5 of /V6P1/ up to this point, where a defined level of operation is restored. The MTTR for the several groups of equipment, which are defined in clause (3) of 2.3.5 of /V6P1/, will be calculated as follows:

MTTRGE =

i =1

N i MTTRi
n i

i =1

Ni

Mean Time To Restore the revenue service in case of failures of equipment E Failure rate of the equipment Number of different groups of equipment (4)

MTTR n

This calculation will be performed for each of the defined group of equipment defined in clause (3) of 2.3.5 of /V6P1/. The Mean Time To Restore measurement will include on site diagnostics and restore activity up to the point that the system is restored to a high level of revenue service.

2.3.3 Demonstration of MTTR


The demonstration of the MTTR for the groups of equipment as referenced in chapter 2.3.1 will be done as part of the Availability Demonstration on the overall system level. The general approach to demonstrate the MTTR of the equipment groups is: 1. Prediction of MTTR of all equipment of the subsystem based on theoretical estimations, field experiences and references; 2. Calculation of MTTR for the defined groups of equipment (train-borne equipment; train detection equipment; other trackside equipment; equipment in rooms) 3. Selection of an adequate number of equipment to be practically demonstrated within factory acceptance tests, installation tests or commissioning tests; definition of these equipment in the Maintainability Demonstration Test Plan of the subsystem; 4. Agreement of the selected equipment by approval of the Maintainability Demonstration Test Plan of the subsystem; 5. Perform maintainability demonstration as defined in the respective approved documents of the subsystem (e.g. Maintenance Demonstration Test Plan of the subsystem); 6. Demonstration of required MTTR for defined groups of equipment within the Availability Demonstration Report based on demonstration reports of the subsystems and calculation as defined in chapter 2.3.2.2.
