Description

  • The invention relates to a method and a device for servicing an elevator or escalator installation.
  • Elevators or escalators are serviced at regular intervals. To service such systems, a service technician goes to the system and inspects the components to be serviced according to a maintenance plan. The multitude of different facilities serviced by a service technician and the different levels of maintenance or troubleshooting require the service technician to provide a variety of technical documentation for each installation. On site, the service technician must decide on the basis of the condition of the plant and the maintenance plan, which measures are taken. To ensure efficient maintenance, the service technician often communicates with a maintenance center several times, usually using a mobile phone. In this communication, technical details, component designations and maintenance parameters for the specific system are requested and the required spare parts are ordered after the maintenance plan has been processed. However, the maintenance center for the escalators and elevator systems is also the point of contact for the operators of the systems. Thus, frequent communication with service technicians with the maintenance center represents a limitation of the availability for the operators of the facilities.
  • Out JP 08161400 is an information system known for maintenance. For the elevator systems to be serviced, the maintenance work to be performed by a service technician is stored in a data memory. In order to plan a working day, the service technician can view the stored data via a data connection by means of a mobile communication device and remove his work plan. This contains a specification of the lift systems to be maintained and the type and scope the envisaged checks of the respective installations. From the latter information, the service technician can find out which measuring devices and which spare parts he experience requires for the maintenance of the respective systems. The communication device allows the service technician to gain an overview of the measuring equipment and spare parts expected during a working day and to assemble the equipment that he / she needs to carry during the working day. Since there is often a different need for maintenance for different elevator systems and usually also different spare parts are required, the above-mentioned information system allows a service technician to assemble his equipment according to the type and extent of expected on a working day maintenance work accordingly in advance and thus in the experience to adapt to expected demand.
  • The above-mentioned information system has a significant disadvantage in planning the demand for spare parts. Different components of an elevator system usually have different lengths of life. For a number of components it can be stated on the basis of empirical values when replacement should be carried out by means of corresponding spare parts. A replacement of such components by spare parts is usually planned in advance and performed after a scheduled period - depending on the expected life of the respective components. In practice, however, a service technician often has to find out that unforeseen operating errors occur during maintenance work on an elevator location. Due to the large number of components that an elevator installation has, a service technician can not usually take all possible spare parts to be equipped to remedy any operating error. If the service technician notices a malfunction he did not expect when servicing a plant, he has a problem finding out if he needs extra spare parts and, if so, which spare parts. On the one hand, the service technician faces the problem that he has an extensive technical Documentation on site would need to find out which of the components of the elevator system would have to be replaced and which additional spare parts are therefore required to correct the operating error. Even if the service technician determines which parts of the lift require additional parts, the problem is how to ensure the delivery of the right parts. In particular, it must be avoided that it is confused when ordering spare parts by the service technician. The risk of confusion when ordering spare parts is therefore given, since a service technician usually has to wait for a large number of different but similar elevator systems. It is therefore associated with considerable effort to avoid errors when ordering spare parts. Also document US 4,697,243 discloses an information system for maintenance.
  • The object of the invention is therefore to provide a method and a device by means of which the implementation of maintenance work made more efficient and the service technician ordering spare parts is facilitated.
  • This object is solved by the features of the independent claims.
  • The invention is based on the idea that service technicians use electronic display and control units for log management. These display and control units are also used to control and program the equipment. For communication with a system, the display and control unit is coupled to an interface of the system so that data can be exchanged between the system and the display and control unit via this interface. The coupling between the interface and the display and control unit can take place either directly at the site of the plant or via a communication link from a location remote from the plant. The above "remote location" can also be the Be maintenance center itself. The display and control unit can also be integrated in the control of the system itself.
  • The invention is furthermore based on the idea that data and parameters which specify the structure and the operating behavior of the respective system are stored in a data memory in a maintenance center arranged away from the systems to be maintained. On the one hand, the data and parameters contain information about which functions the respective system should fulfill in accordance with its specification during operation. The data and parameters further include information about which components the respective system has. The structure of a plant determines which components contribute to the realization of a specific function of the plant. The data and parameters provided in the data store thus provide a description of the performance that a plant should exhibit according to its specification. According to the invention, operating parameters of a system are detected during the course of a test routine and compared with corresponding data and parameters stored in the data memory. If there is a discrepancy between the recorded operating parameters and the stored data and parameters, it can be concluded that one or more operating errors exist. An error log is created containing a specification of the operational errors that are determined at the end of the test routine. An operating error is due to the fact that at least one particular component does not work according to the specification. The data and parameters contained in the data memory make it possible to identify, for each operational fault detected, those components of the equipment that are responsible for the operating error due to a malfunction and thus can be associated with the operating error. The method according to the invention thus makes it possible to identify operating errors and the spare parts which may be considered for rectifying the operating errors before carrying out maintenance work. Since the data and parameters contained in the data memory contain, inter alia, a specification of the components contained in a particular system, the spare parts can each be unique be specified, for example by means of a unique component designation in the form of a component number or other suitable identifier. The identified spare parts can each be displayed compactly in a list. If necessary, the data contained in the list can be stored or transferred via a data connection, for example to record the data in a management system of a spare parts store or to arrange for the ordering of spare parts. Since the spare parts can be characterized by a unique component designation, confusion with other spare parts can be avoided.
  • After identification between the system and the display and operating unit, operating parameters of the system are transmitted to the display and control unit. There, the transmitted operating parameters are displayed. The service technician thus has access to the serial number and important operating parameters, such as year of construction, running time, distance to the last maintenance, etc.
  • Each system has a unique serial number, by means of which it is possible to deduce the installed components. Run times, control periods and other operating parameters can also be determined uniquely via the serial number of the system. Furthermore, for the maintenance of such systems technical documentation is required, which can be found on the serial number. However, all technical documents, spare parts lists and maintenance parameters can not be stored on the display and control unit of all systems to be serviced. Especially since the timeliness of the data would not be guaranteed.
  • According to the invention, a data connection is now established to a maintenance center remote from the installation. The system and / or the display and control unit identifies itself at the maintenance center and transmits the serial number of the system. In the maintenance center are all current documents and parameters of the system stored. On the basis of the identification system-specific data and parameters of the system are transmitted to the display and control unit. There, based on a comparison, an error log can be generated with a set of component designations corresponding to the required spare parts. The comparison compares operating parameters with transmitted data and parameters, and creates this error log when deviations occur between operating parameters and transmitted data and parameters. The error log is transmitted via the data connection to the maintenance center.
  • By setting up the data connection, the service technician has access to the correct and up-to-date data and parameters. These include, for example, commission data, technical documentation, spare parts lists and maintenance-relevant parameters. The service technician can thus view the data required by him on the display and control unit and create the error log. In particular, he can create a list of spare parts needed for the maintenance of the plant. This list is automatically transferred to the maintenance center and the order is triggered. If necessary, the error log can be transmitted to the maintenance center in order to save a maintenance history.
  • Advantageous embodiments and modifications of the invention will become apparent from the dependent claims.
  • A preferred development provides that the service technician compares the displayed operating parameters and transmitted data and parameters and creates the error log depending on the comparison, which is transmitted via the data connection to the maintenance center. This has the advantage that the service technician can influence the ordering of spare parts, since defects can usually be remedied with a small repair. Accordingly, the service technician can read the error log or, if necessary, correct a list with a specification of the spare parts needed to remedy operational errors.
  • In a further advantageous embodiment of the invention, it is provided that after successful identification of a test routine runs on the system and a test report of the system is displayed on the display and control unit, which is compared with transmitted data and parameters and a deviation error log with a list the component designations of the respective spare parts is created, which is transmitted via the data connection to the maintenance center. Here, the service technician can first make adjustments to the plant based on the displayed operating parameters to affect the components that affect the operating parameters. If the operating parameters can not be moved within a permissible range during a new test, it is usually necessary to replace the responsible component. A re-run of the test routine generates the test report with the error and an automatic comparison between the test report and transmitted data and parameters generates an error log and a list of component names of the components that need to be replaced. This list is transmitted to the service center via the data connection.
  • In a further advantageous embodiment of the invention, the service technician is requested to enter an identification code, which is compared with a stored in a memory of the system identification code and / or with a stored in the maintenance center identification code. Identification is not just about security. Thus, the type and extent of maintenance can also be encoded by different identification codes. As a result, different amounts of operating parameters can be output or, for example, in the case of a large-scale inspection, also operating parameters of components which are not checked during normal maintenance.
  • In a preferred embodiment, the amount of access to the stored data in the plant and in the maintenance center data and parameters of the entered identification code. Thus, the extent of the data and parameters to be transmitted by the maintenance center can be adapted to the intended scope of maintenance.
  • In a further advantageous embodiment of the invention, the data connection between the system and maintenance center is established via a connected to the display and control unit mobile phone. The transmitted to the display and control unit operating parameters are thus transmitted via the mobile phone to the maintenance center. The requested data and parameters of the system are also sent from the maintenance center to the mobile phone and transferred from there to the display and operating unit.
  • In an alternative advantageous embodiment of the invention, the data connection to the maintenance center is established via the emergency call connection of the system. Most of the systems have an emergency call connection to the public telephone network. Since this is not needed during maintenance, the emergency call connection can be used to establish a data connection to the maintenance center. The emergency call connection is controlled by the display and control unit.
  • In a further advantageous embodiment of the invention, a feedback from the maintenance center to the system / display and control unit is transmitted after the transmission of the error log with the set of component names. In this case, the feedback can advantageously include an availability status for the required spare parts and / or repair instructions to remedy the operating errors listed in the error log. The service technician can thus look for alternative availability options based on the repair instructions in the event of a negative availability status.
  • The same applies mutatis mutandis to the embodiments of the device according to the invention, wherein reference is also made in this regard to the corresponding statements in connection with the method according to the invention.

  • In FIG. 1 the construction of a device according to the invention is shown. It is shown an indicating and operating unit 11 which is connected to the system 12, which may be present as an elevator or escalator installation. In particular, the display and control unit 11 is connected via an interface 14 with the system 12. The connection can be made both wired (RS232, USB) and wirelessly via radio or infrared (IRDA). In addition to the interface 14, the system 12 also includes at least one controller 19 and a device 18 for passing through a test routine. The system 12 contains sensors that detect operating parameters such as engine temperature, speed of the escalator or elevator, and distance values. These values are stored together with other operating parameters from the controller, such as run time, frequency of movement of the system and error messages from components in a memory. Furthermore, the emergency call connection 17 is contained, via which a data connection 16 to the maintenance center 13 can be established. The maintenance center 13 is located at a remote location. The data connection can also be established via a mobile telephone 15 or other telephone connected to the display and control unit 11.
  • The display and control unit 11 can be realized by a notebook or a PDA. However, user-specific user interfaces with display and input options can also be used. By means of the display and control unit 11 corresponding maintenance parameters are set in the system after maintenance.

  • First, the service technician or other authorized person connects a display and control unit (ABU) 11 to an interface 14 of the system 12 (step 21). This is followed by an identification (step 22) between the display and operating unit 11 and the system 12. This can be done by entering an identification code by the service technician, but other common identification means can be used. Thereafter, the identification code corresponding operating parameters are transmitted to the display and control unit 11 in step 23, which are displayed there to the service technician. In addition, a data connection 16 is established via a data connection device 15, 17 to a maintenance center 13. In the maintenance center 13 access is checked on the basis of the identification code and the serial number known from the operating parameters (step 24). Depending on the identification code and serial number, data and parameters of the system 12 are transmitted from the service center 13 to the display and control unit 11 and displayed there (step 25). In the display and control unit 11 then a comparison of current operating parameters and transmitted data and parameters from the maintenance center is made (step 26). This can be done either automatically or manually by the service technician. If there is no deviation (step 27), the maintenance is completed without error (step 28). Optionally, an error-free protocol can be transmitted to the maintenance center 13. If a deviation exists (step 27), an error log is generated in the display and operating unit 11 (step 29), which comprises the faulty components and the associated component designations. There is also an error if, for example, a component has exceeded its maximum runtime and therefore needs to be replaced. The error log is transmitted to the service center 13 along with the component name list (step 30). Finally, in the maintenance center 13, a replacement part order is triggered (step 31), wherein the service technician receives a response from the maintenance center 13 (step 32), which indicates the availability status of the required components and, if necessary, repair instructions.
  • In an alternative embodiment of the method, not shown, the data and parameters transmitted by the maintenance center 13 may be stored in the installation 12 with the commission documents, technical documents and component designations after the transmission to the display and operating unit 11, so that the data connection 16 does not have the entire maintenance period must continue. This also has the advantage that a service technician can directly access the documents in the system during a renewed maintenance or when installing the requested spare parts. In this case, however, the timeliness of the stored data must be maintained, which can be ensured by comparing stored data in the system 12 with the data in the maintenance center 13. It is not always necessary to update all the stored data in Annex 12, for example, the technical documents remain largely preserved over the life of a plant. In contrast, maintenance parameters must be updated regularly.
  • In an alternative embodiment of the method, the display and control unit is not coupled directly to the site of the system to an interface of the system, but is operated in a remote maintenance mode, the display and control unit via a communication link from a remote location of the plant - If necessary, for example, also from the maintenance center - exchanges the data required for maintenance with the system and / or with the maintenance center. The remote maintenance mode has the advantage that the service technician can already create an error log with a description of the components to be exchanged before he personally visits the system. According to the inventive method, the creation of the error log is generated automatically or interactively with a check by the service technician.
  • Based on a created error log, a database for updating a maintenance plan of a plant and a database can be automatically updated Work plan of a service technician. Furthermore, a database can be created and updated to anticipate the maintenance of multiple assets.
  • As a rule, a work schedule of a service technician implies that he has a certain set of spare parts as a mobile spare parts collection. In one embodiment of the inventive device, the current inventory of mobile spare parts collection of a service technician in a memory of the display and control unit and / or in a memory in the maintenance center is noted. It is possible to define a set of different components, specified in detail on the basis of the component designation and a target number of pieces per component, as a target spare parts collection and also store them in memory. The target number of pieces specifies the number of components that the service technician - based on experience - should carry in his mobile spare parts collection at the start of service. The creation of the error log according to the inventive method in remote maintenance mode allows the service technician to determine a list of the expected replacement parts for a system before he personally visits the system. After completing maintenance on a particular installation, the service technician can use the display and control panel to identify which components and how many of the individual components were actually installed during system maintenance. This automatically determines the current stock of the mobile spare parts collection.
  • The service technician can now plan the maintenance of several systems in a forward-looking manner by determining an error log with a set of component names according to the method according to the invention for each of these systems in each case in the remote maintenance mode. From this, the display and operating device determines the spare parts expected to be required for the maintenance of the individual systems - broken down according to the component designation and the number of components required in each case - and also stores this data in memory. The display and control panel can now make a comparison of: (i) target spare parts collection, (ii) current stock of the mobile spare parts collection, and (iii) anticipated spare parts needs for a series of sequential maintenance on different equipment for the planned but not yet performed maintenance work. The result of this comparison is stored in the memory of the display and control unit and can be transmitted to the maintenance center or further processed in the maintenance center. The comparison indicates whether the current inventory of the replacement parts collection is likely to be sufficient to perform the scheduled maintenance. If the comparison shows that the mobile parts collection is not sufficiently stocked to perform the scheduled maintenance, it will be displayed to the service technician and / or the service center. The display and control unit offers the option of defining a list of components, which, broken down by the description of the missing components and the respective number of missing components, indicates the shortage of the mobile spare parts collection. Defective stock means here the difference between the number of components required in each case and the respective number of components belonging to the current stock of the mobile spare parts collection.
  • The display and control unit offers various options for triggering actions after determining a shortage. A first possible action is to compare the component list indicating the shortage with a spare parts list indicating the inventory of a central spare parts store. This central spare parts warehouse can be performed, for example, in the maintenance center. The display and operating unit indicates whether the shortage of the mobile spare parts collection can be compensated via the central spare parts warehouse. If so, then the display and control unit displays a selection of different AC steps. In step A, the display and control unit in the central spare parts warehouse triggers the reservation of spare parts that the service technician needs to make up for the shortage of spare parts balance his mobile spare parts collection. In step B, the service technician can send a signal directed to the spare parts store and / or the maintenance center by means of the display and operating unit, which signal triggers an order for the delivery of selected spare parts at a specific time to a selected installation. In this way, a service technician can use electronic means to arrange the delivery of spare parts to a specific location. Step C offers the possibility of separately storing the designation and the number of components whose replacement is provided on the basis of the error log, but which are currently not available in the central spare parts store, by means of the display and operating unit. These components may be automatically flagged in the display and control unit and / or in the service center for replacement at a later time. Furthermore, it can be provided that a signal can be generated if there is a shortage of spare parts in the spare parts store. The signal may be used to initiate a repair of the failed inventory, for example, by ordering an order for missing spare parts from external suppliers, for example by electronic means via a communication link. The data needed to process the order can be stored together with the data for the specification of the spare parts in the maintenance center.
  • The display and control unit offers the possibility of providing recommendations based on a given safety standard as to whether the replacement of a component specified in the error log is urgent or not. This information can be used when planning future maintenance. If, due to the safety standard, the replacement of a component specified in the error log is not urgently required, a signal can be generated with the display and control unit that marks the replacement of this component in a plan for the next maintenance, which follows an already existing maintenance plan to take place at a predetermined frequency. In the maintenance center electronically appropriate plans for the maintenance measures, the assembly of the central spare parts warehouse and the work planning of the service technicians are generated and stored. However, if the replacement of a component specified in the error log is urgently required due to the safety standard, a signal can be generated with the display and control unit, which triggers a warning in the maintenance center. In the maintenance center, suitable measures can then be taken to organize the replacement of the component outside the cycle scheduled in the maintenance plan.
  • The display and operating unit can be used to record all maintenance work carried out by a service technician and all components installed during a maintenance measure. On the basis of the data collected in this way, a cost accounting for the maintenance measures can be carried out and an automatic invoicing can be effected to the operators of the respective installations. Billing can be done in paper or electronic form.
