  • Toby Horstead Principal Manager Network & Asset Strategy Asset Standards Authority 12 June 2014 Asset Assurance: the whole of life approach
  • Scope of today • The ASA & its Operational Environment • Asset Management in TfNSW • Asset Information & Life Cycle Costing • Configuration and Assurance Gating • Video • Asset Management & the Supply Chain • Future Collaboration 2
  • The ASA & its Operational Environment
  • What is the ASA? • ASA is an independent body within TfNSW • Design authority for defined transport assets • Technical authority for Asset Management • Currently heavy rail - metropolitan, country and North West Rail Link • Working to expand coverage into Light Rail and Ferry assets • Dual reporting - DDG TPD and Secretary TfNSW 4
  • ASA within TfNSW David Stewart Secretary Toby Horstead 5
  • NSW Transport Reform (Rail) • 1 July 2013: new arrangements went live. • RailCorp was restructured: – Sydney Trains and NSW Trains as operator maintainers. – Residual RailCorp asset owner (subject to change). • TfNSW as planner, procurer and Design Authority for assets • ASA established to exercise Design Authority over all TfNSW heavy rail assets • ASA to grant Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO) status 6
  • Who is the ASA? 7
  • ASA organisation 8
  • What are the tasks? Make it clearer, simpler and more attractive to do business in NSW • Allow supply chain to deliver safe asset services without overly prescriptive and stifling supervision • Improve access to broader competitive supply chain through • Maintain safety of asset systems and transport networks • Place the customer at the centre of everything we do 9
  • Key functions 10
  • ASA’s organisational function 11
  • Heavy Rail asset highlights Metro 2,008 electric and diesel fleet cars 1,604 km (approx) main line track Approx 83 route km of tunnels Approx 1,148 bridge structures 376 stations (includes country and Hunter line stations) 92 traction sub-stations and 68 sectioning huts 3,957 signals 6,831 track circuits 2,042 km optic fibre 2,500 km copper cable More than 1,900 turnout assets Country rail 2,386 km track 1312 level crossings (300 active) 984 bridge structures NWRL 36 km track (incl. 13km ECRL) 8 stations with platform screen doors 30 km tunnels (15km twin) 4 km viaduct 20 mass transit trains – Phase1 SWRL 11.4 km track 2 stations 12
  • Working with RISSB Rail Standards • Working in concert with RISSB to align standard development plans and ensure greatest benefit and efficiencies • Appropriate development of performance based standards across the full asset life cycle • ASA utilise peer review and consultation that supports RISSB processes • ASA performance based standards may be used as draft for developing a national standard
  • A new procurement paradigm
  • Authorisation update • Two types of authorisation – Project and Direct • Authorisations issued to date – 15 project – 8 organisational • Authorisations in progress • 103 organisations expressing interest 15
  • AEO status - Note • AEO status does NOT cut across legislative and regulatory boundaries • AEO status does not guarantee work – normal procurement/tendering processes apply • AEO status does not take away from the normal project management activities between Principal and Contractor relating to the management of scope and time 16
  • Asset Management in TfNSW
  • Asset lifecycle & asset management • There are 4 different phases • Each phase may be managed by a different TfNSW Division • Activities to be coordinated across Whole of Life • We want to assure a legacy of assets over the whole of life •18
  • A whole of life legacy… 19
  • A whole of life legacy… 20
  • For thought 21 SWRL
  • Whole of Life Benefits • The Supply Chain is an active participant in ensuring long-term industry growth 22 … result in minimised cost and risk here that can ….. ….increase opportunity and improve funding here Appropriately considering Whole of Life, integration and addressing the business objectives here…can
  • Asset Management Policy • Effective Nov 2013 • Applies to all working for or on behalf of TfNSW • Applies whole of life management principles and practices 23
  • Policy themes • Whole of life approach • Suitability and scalability • Statutory and regulatory compliance • Sustainable approach • Continuous improvement 24
  • TfNSW Vision • Provide a safe, reliable and integrated transport solution; through • Sustainable and collaborative management of assets 25
  • Asset Management in TfNSW 26
  • Activity Description Lifecycle alignment • Language • Investment – assurance / config gating • Communication - TfNSW Asset Management Framework • Define approach • Collate and connect processes and procedures Standards • Strategic and lifecycle approach • Prioritisation and review • Risk based and VFM ASA activities
  • Whole of Life - consider • Capital – install the latest and greatest? • Integration – available time to build, system adjustment, compatibility • Maintenance – has xing been protected, refurbish instead of renew • But first, Operation – is the xover really needed, what is the criticality? Facing TO on a diamond Xover 28
  • Asset Information & Life Cycle Costing Angelo Koutsoukos, Manager Asset Stewardship
  • Asset life cycle & life cycle costing
  • Life cycle costing across the asset life cycle Operational Change Significant Configuration Change Asset Type Approval New Asset Investment Change in System Requirements Change in Maintenance Requirements Change in Asset Strategy
  • Life cycle costing, why?
  • Life cycle costing, who? • Service providers or project developers performing asset management related services to TfNSW, including their suppliers; – When defining, designing, building, implementing, commissioning, maintaining, integrating into the operating network any new or altered assets or systems • TfNSW Life Cycle Costing Standard T-MU-AM-01001-ST mandates use of AS/NZS 4536:1999 – Life Cycle Costing – Application Guide • Provides applicability and specific considerations for TfNSW
  • TfNSW Asset Information Management Standard Information is a strategic asset that needs to be managed the same as a physical asset Project Information Asset Information Handover • Documentation • Graphical Data • Non Graphical Data Information Build-up, Collaboration, Transition and Maintenance Asset Information - Static Data - Dynamic Data Graphical & Non Graphical Asset Register Asset Data / Attributes Documents -Unique Id Linear & Discrete Asset Classifications (Class, Function, Type) Linear & Discrete Asset Information - Static Data - Dynamic Data Graphical & Non Graphical Asset Register Asset Data / Attributes Documents -Unique Id Linear & Discrete Asset Classifications (Class, Function, Type) Linear & Discrete
  • • Consistent definition and framework of asset structuring and categorisation • Create and sustain the Asset Register Asset classifications
  • Assurance across the life cycle Toby Horstead, Principal Manager Network & Asset Strategy
  • Assurance through the whole asset lifecycle • Positive declaration to give confidence, a promise • Confidence or certainty in one’s abilities • Story of what has been done to ensure right asset/outcome is delivered • Argument with evidence 37
  • WH&S Act 2011 22; Duties of persons conducting businesses or undertakings that design plant, substances or structures (2) The designer must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that the plant, substance or structure is designed to be without risks to the health and safety of persons (3) The designer must carry out, or arrange the carrying out of, any calculations, analysis, testing or examination that may be necessary for the performance of the duty imposed by subsection (2) 38
  • Configuration & asset assurance 39
