Sustainable cities & communities

Mexico City – Palacio Nacional. Mural by Diego Rivera showing the life in Aztec times, i.e., the city of Tenochtitlan

The United States Technical Advisory Group (US-TAG), with oversight by the American National Standards Institute and project administration by NFPA International, is participating in the development of an International Organization for Standardization consensus document that will shape policy development for smart cities (sustainable cities and communities).   The ISO Global Secretariat is ANSI’s French counterpart Association Française de Normalisation (AFNOR) as shown in the map below.

As cities-within-cities, major international research universities are stakeholders in these discussions because of the town-gown infrastructure interface in the emergent #SmartCampus.  We have been participants in this project since 2014:

Consensus documents emerging from ISO/TC 268 tend to be large, fast-moving and highly interdependent.  Drafts for US stakeholder comment and balloting arrive frequently as new workgroups are spawned from the core ISO TC/268 committees.

Access to “commentable” draft documents is limited to US TAG members however ANSI has arranged for restrictions to be lifted for circulation among US stakeholders.  Those who would like to participate should communicate directly with Robert Solomon (rsolomon@nfpa.org) and/or Linda MacKay (lmackay@nfpa.org) at NFPA International, the US TAG Administrator for this project.

We are happy to review these documents online during our Global Standardsteleconference; the next shown on our CALENDAR.  Use the login credentials at the upper right of our home page.

May 2018 Update:

Balloting was completed by the US TAG on proposed ISO/FDIS 37120 Sustainable Development in Communities – Indicators for City Services and Quality of Life

April 2018 Update:

At the 2017 Paris meeting of TC/268, the UK suggested that it would be helpful to develop an overall maturity model for cities, drawing on the framework set out by SC1 in ISO/DIS 37153. The TC agreed, and WG4 was asked to work up proposals.

At its Berlin meeting in May, WG4 made good progress and recommended a way forward. But in plenary discussion with other working groups, there was concern that WG4 was moving too quickly and on too narrowly‐focused a basis

The purpose of a recent release by ISO TC/268 — an outline of city “maturity models” — is to respond to those concerns, proposing a broader framework for future work in this area across TC/268

ISO TC 268 City Maturity Model Presentation

An explanation of the broad contours of parent standard — with the Association Française de Normalisation (AFNOR Groupas the Secretariat — is described in the videoclip below:

Some consensus products govern technologies that change quickly — usually responsive to public safety issues — though the User-Interest remains comparatively weak with respect to the incumbent verticals we explain in our ABOUT.  Today at 11AM/EDT we rip through redlines that have a short (30-45 day) commenting window according to ANSI’s Continuous Maintenance development process.  We start with the list of standards setting organizations listed below:

– AAMI (Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation)
– AGA (American Gas Association)
– ASC X9 (Accredited Standards Committee X9, Incorporated)
– ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc.)
– ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers)
– ASTM (ASTM International)
– HL7 (Health Level Seven)
– IESNA (The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America)-
– NISO (National Information Standards Organization)
– NSF (NSF International)
– TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association)
– UL (Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.

We also do a status check on consortia and open-source products; most of which we can cover today but are also on the standing agenda of our Infotech teleconferences.

Fast-moving consensus products have broad implications for the safety and sustainability agenda of education communities everywhere.  CLICK HERE for ANSI’s expansion on Incorporation by Reference and its implication for its standard setting organizations.  You may also find our coverage of the Canadian Parliament‘s debate on “open incorporation by reference” enlightening.

 

Smart Cities: Wicked Problems

“Oxford from the River with Christ Church in the Foreground” | William Turner (1820)

Smart cities: moving beyond urban cybernetics to tackle wicked problems

Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society, Volume 8, Issue 1, March 2015 | “The Smart City”

 

Abstract. This article makes three related arguments. First, that although many definitions of the smart city have been proposed, corporate promoters say a smart city uses information technology to pursue efficient systems through real-time monitoring and control. Second, this definition is not new and equivalent to the idea of urban cybernetics debated in the 1970s. Third, drawing on a discussion of Rio de Janeiro’s Operations Center, I argue that viewing urban problems as wicked problems allows for more fundamental solutions than urban cybernetics, but requires local innovation and stakeholder participation. Therefore the last section describes institutions for municipal innovation and IT-enabled collaborative planning.

Conformance

Health Level Seven International (HL7), founded in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1987, is a not-for-profit, ANSI-accredited standards developing organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive framework and related standards for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of electronic health information that supports clinical practice and the management, delivery and evaluation of health services.  HL7 is supported by more than 1,600 members from over 50 countries, including 500+ corporate members representing healthcare providers, government stakeholders, payers, pharmaceutical companies, vendors/suppliers, and consulting firms.

HL7 runs an outstanding content management system for its products as can be seen in the link below:

HL7 Standards – Master Grid

Like many consensus product developers with a continuous maintenance process, it has developed its own proprietary user interface.

Today we include HL7 in our monthly scan of ANSI-accredited standards under continuous maintenance.  One of its parent standards, described below, is open for public review:

HL7 V2 Conformance.  The intent of the project is to update the conformance methodology used to profile message definitions and to separate (divorce) the conformance chapter (currently Chapter 2B) from the ‘main’ HL7 v2 standard.

– Provide an independent (separate) HL7 v2 Conformance Methodology standard.

– Update the conformance constructs and profiling mechanisms used for implementation
guide creation

– Update the profile schema that supports the XML computable representation for implementation guides and message profiles

– Deprecate by means of an errata the Conformance chapter/section from all prior V2 versions. (our expectation is that the content of conformance testing of existing IGs will not change, but going forward any new specification will use this updated conformance methodology). To be clear, the proposal is an updated method of how to specify conformance for new IGs.

– Identify opportunities to encourage adoption by external implementation guide developers (e.g., IHE) to use the same conformance definitions and constructs.

Comments due July 27th.

We maintain the HL7 suite on the standing agenda of our Health and Nota Bene teleconferences.  See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting; open to everyone.
