BS ISO 37153:2017 pdf download – Smart community infrastructures – Maturity model for assessment and improvement
5 Requirements and guidance to develop an achievement criteria table
5.1 General To develop an achievement criteria table, users (e.g. experts, consultants/city planners or owners/operators of community infrastructures) should take the following steps: a) determine the purpose, assessment aspect and target community infrastructure(s);
b) select characteristics that fit the purpose (see 5.3 for details); c) define the characteristics for each of the five maturity levels in accordance with the CIMMs (see 5.4 for details); d) organize the characteristics and the maturity levels into the criteria in a table. Once the achievement criteria table has been developed, other users may use the table for their assessment needs. When choosing target infrastructure(s), users may choose anything from a single piece of infrastructure to multiple infrastructures.
5.2 Guidance to determine purposes To determine the purpose of the assessment, users should
a) determine the target community (e.g. city, state, nation, region),
b) identify and prioritize the community issues in the target community (e.g. unemployment, poverty, congestion),
c) identify and analyse the relevant community infrastructure(s) and its impacts on the prioritized community issues,
d) define the purpose of the assessment and improvement of the community infrastructure(s) identified in b) in the community determined in a). To prioritize community issues, users may refer to the following documents depending on the target communities:
— for a nation, the UN SDGs or a specific national development plan; — for a region, the UN SDGs or a specific regional development plan;
— for a city, the UN SDGs or a specific urban development plan. NOTE Community issues are the challenges that the community faces. Obviously, the issues and their priorities vary between different communities.
5.3 Requirements and guidance to identify characteristics
5.3.1 General Users shall select characteristics of the community infrastructure(s) in accordance with the purpose of the assessment and the assessment aspect. For a technical assessment of community infrastructure(s), users shall select technical characteristics in accordance with the requirements given in ISO/TS 37151.
For a contribution assessment, users shall select community-wide characteristics (preferably indicators or metrics) with societal merits, taking into account the whole function of multiple community infrastructures, through a comprehensive perspective.
For such characteristics, users should refer to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015 or to the national development goals of each nation.
It is possible that additional characteristics could come from regulations, industry standards and specifications.
Table 4 outlines an example of how to identify the characteristics.
5.3.2 Additional recommendation for characteristics
The following recommendations are given to aid users in their selection of appropriate characteristics to define the maturity level classification. A characteristic should
— beametric,i.e.measureablethroughmonitoring,surveyingorsomeothertypeofassessmentmethod,
— be easily used for rating (it is suggested that the users avoid “YES/NO” or other “Either/OR” classifications because those are difficult to place on a five-level scale.),
— allow for the ability to obtain accurate and precise results. NOTE Reviewing and revising the selected characteristics based on practical verification can help users constantly improve characteristics, which become better suited to their needs.
5.4 Guidance to define criteria of maturity levels
5.4.1 General Users should develop, in accordance with the general descriptions given in the following subclauses, the descriptions of criteria of five maturity levels for each identified characteristic, which will be compiled in the achievement criteria table. To define the maturity levels, users should a) classify each identified characteristic as one of three attributes: performance, process or interoperability (see 5.4.2 for details),
NOTE 1 Users do not have to develop characteristics for all three attributes if it is not appropriate to do so
b) develop the five-level criteria for each characteristic on the basis of the reference maturity models for each classification (see 5.4.3 for details).BS ISO 37153 pdf download.
