This standard will be valuable to transportation engineers, safety engineers, and contractors of APM system; Part 4 of 4.
ANSI/ASCE/T&DI 21.4-08 is Part 4 of the four-part Automated People Mover (APM) Standards, which establishes the minimum set of requirements necessary to achieve an acceptable level of safety and performance for an APM system. This Standard is an essential document for transportation engineers, safety engineers, and contractors of APM systems. It will also be beneficial to anyone who owns, operates, maintains, designs, tests, insures, oversees, or certifies APMs or other innovative technology transit systems.
Automated People Mover Standards, Part 4 covers the minimum set of requirements for maintaining automated people mover systems, and specifically provides information on security, emergency preparedness, system verification and demonstration, operations, maintenance and training, and operational monitoring. The Standard also includes three informative annexes which offer to the user a series of options or instructions, but do not prescribe a specific course of action. These annexes are not a mandatory part of the Standard, and significant judgment is left to the user. 36 pp.
