The BE-ICS group is responsible for a diverse range of systems playing key roles in the day-to-day functioning of the laboratory, from control and monitoring of cryogenics to ensuring site-wide access control for personnel, goods and vehicles. The health of these systems is monitored through various means to ensure their high availability and correct function, when faults do occur, diagnosis must be accurate and rapid. Faults may even be avoided through early detection.

This Technical Committee is focused on defining the health monitoring requirements of the group. This includes both current requirements and requirements expected to come in to play in the near future.

The goal is to provide answers to the following questions:

  • What is the common group definition of monitoring system health?
  • Which aspects of a system are (or should be) monitored?
  • How are systems monitored currently?
  • Are there too many/not enough monitoring systems in play currently?
  • What benefits could there be in changing the current status quo in system health monitoring
