Title: Professional Society Standards


1
Professional Society Standards
  • Jim Dietz
  • Chair, Rail Transit Vehicle Interface Standards
    Committee

2
Overview
  • Consensus standards process
  • Benefits of standardization
  • Rail Transit Vehicle Interface Standards
    Committee
  • How to get involved

3
Consensus Standards Process- ANSI -
  • American National Standards Institute
  • Founded in 1918
  • Private, non-profit organization
  • Administers and coordinates U.S. voluntary
    standardization and conformity assessment system

4
Consensus Standards Process- National Standards -
  • ANSI doesnt develop standards
  • ANSI facilitates development
  • Consensus, due process and openness
  • More than 175 accredited entities
  • www.ansi.org for more information

5
Consensus Standards Process- IEEE Standards
Association -
  • One entity producing standards
  • Audited for conformance to ANSI requirements
    (e.g. consensus)
  • Standards to provide common ground for
    communication in specific areas of
    electrotechnology
  • Each standard must have a sponsor

6
Consensus Standards Process- RTVISC -
  • Rail Transit Vehicle Interface Standards
    Committee
  • Sponsors individual standards
  • Facilitates working groups
  • (More on RTVISC later)

7
Consensus Standards Process- Overview relative
to IEEE Rail -
ANSI Assures conformity
Professional Societies Development process
Sponsor Broad review and balloting
Working Group Draft the text
8
Benefits of Standardization- Safety -
  • 2.5 billion light rail and subway passengers each
    year
  • 4 times as many passengers as US airlines
  • Safety has both project specific and universal
    aspects
  • Draw on the whole rail community

9
Benefits of Standardization- Control Costs -
  • Rail applications are known for customization
  • With standardization
  • Reduced design cost
  • Reduced risk/contingency dollars
  • Minimize single sources
  • Improved reliability
  • Reduced maintenance training

10
Benefits of Standardization- Regulatory
Participation -
  • National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act
    (Public Law 104-113)
  • Federal agencies must use, wherever possible,
    technical standards developed by consensus
    standards organizations

11
Benefits of Standardization- Credibility -
  • Standards have a legal standing
  • Use of standards may help manage liability

12
RTVISC- History -
  • Rail Transit Vehicle Interface Standards
    Committee
  • Founded in 1996 Tom McGean, Chair
  • Fifty member committee
  • More than 300 professionals have participated in
    working groups

13
RTVISC- Recent Transition -
  • Originally funded as a Transit Cooperative
    Research Program (TCRP) project
  • The process works! (no longer research)
  • Funding shifted to APTA in 2002
  • Chair shifted to Jim Dietz in 2002

14
RTVISC- Organization -

22
Professional Society Standards- Summary -
  • There is a rigorous consensus standards process
    in the US
  • Professional societies are at the forefront of
    standards development
  • Rail standards development activity in the US is
    very high
  • Care to help?
