ASSET MANAGEMENT OF PUBLIC SERVICE ESCALATORS


Public service escalators (PSEs) are vital to the continued operation of public service terminals (e.g., airports, railway stations). The traffic profiles are characterised by heavy traffic flows, occurring in surges which coincide with the type of traffic that they serve (e.g., surge of passengers from trains, surge of passengers in an airport). For these reasons, it is important to understand and analyse their availability and reliability to be able to predict future performance and identify gaps in maintenance or design. This article will discuss the differences between standard escalators and public-service escalators, which are dominantly heavy duty. It outlines the differences in the operating environment, the higher performance requirements for the PSEs and how these necessitate a different design. This article then discusses the asset-management process for these escalators, as applied in a public-transport context. Six stages are involved in the asset-management cycle: data gathering, analysis of relationships and trends, modelling, developing a plan, appraisal of the options and implementation. The cycle is a continuously iterative one, and the process keeps on repeating to update itself with any new developments. Each of these stages is discussed in detail, outlining a general methodology for data gathering and discussing how appraisal is used in different applications.......
