Example – RDS tailoring

The 81346 standard allows for the creation of company specific classification of infrastructure objects. Such classification schemes are created by a company to distinguish between systems that fulfill similar functions.

This example shows one such classification scheme, which was created as part of a project to apply RDS for cement plants.

A few words about the project:
As a leading supplier of complete plants and equipment to the global cement and minerals industries, F.L. Smidth A/S is working with large and complex technical systems. The company had a need of establishing a new code system for the classification of the design information of their different plants. The requirements were an international based and flexible system in order to meet future extensions of the design information.

Systems Engineering A/S provided consultancy service about the ISO/IEC 81346-standard, as it defines a coding system of technical objects, components and parts according to international rules, including development of new structures and principles.
Also, the project involved the implementation of the standard through workshop and guidance on how to use in practise.

What’s in it:

  • An international recognized coding system.
  • Excellent overview of the components.
  • Support System Engineering discipline.

The classification of the ‘top-systems’ is made in accordance with ISO/IEC 81346-2:2009 table 3.
