Technical documentation

This is an excerpt from PDP template (Project-specific document management procedure) For a complete overview of requirements for documents, please refer to the project's PDP.

Requirements for archiving and storage

The supplier is obliged to have a project archive for technical documentation for all official audits with an electronic signature. The supplier shall use a suitable electronic system that at least takes care of numbering, audit handling, status codes, deadlines, as well as traceability of files and shipments.

The archive must be available and in accordance with requirements for safety and durability with a minimum duration beyond the warranty period or in relation to a possible maintenance agreement.

The production format for all deliveries must be handed over to Bane NOR on request and is also mandatory for ‘as built’ publications (D revisions), or generally for final delivery of a delivery / partial delivery to Bane NOR.

In connection with small changes, alterations, rehabilitations and modifications, Bane NOR reserves the right to change models or drawings afterwards without prior approval from the supplier.

The production format for drawings / models the original format from the CAD program the files are produced in, incl. Xref / support files, e.g. AutoCAD (.dwg), Revit (.rvt), Tekla (.db1), Bentley (.dgn), Novapoint (.dwg). BIM / 3D models are delivered in .dwg format, alternatively IFC, LandXML or other format by appointment.

Bane NOR reserves the right to make revisions of the supplier's original archive..

Document plan

Document plans are used for several purposes in the project. All participants in the project must plan their document production in accordance with current requirements, regulations and schedules. The document plan will also be used in connection with the import of metadata to Bane NOR's systems, so that manual registration is limited. Furthermore, the document plan must form the basis for status reporting from eSAM.

The supplier shall prepare a complete document plan for all technical documentation included in the delivery. The document plan must be prepared and handled as a separate technical document with a document number and technical front page. The plan must be sent officially to Bane NOR for comment and acceptance, both in PDF and XLSX format.

In connection with the construction plan and preparation of FDV and Manufacturing documentation for end customers, the document plan will also be used for import to the operating archives for reserving FDV no. (Operating number) from Bane NOR's operating organization.

FDV no. Is applied to the document plan by Bane NOR when the plan is of satisfactory quality and in good time before the FDV documentation is prepared. FDV no. and revision number must be applied in the title block / title field for all technical documents and drawings before the documentation is transferred to operation. It is the individual supplier's responsibility that this is done.

During the process, the project will be able to change the layout of the document plan's content and structure if necessary

Design and signing of technical documentation

All documentation must be readable, this means that original files must be converted directly from originals to pdf so that it is possible to use the table of contents to browse the documentation. Technical documents shall be prepared based on Bane NOR's template for technical documents (ref. Bane NOR's Technical Regulations), see project-specific templates Appendix 2 - template for document cover. For FDV documentation, the documents must contain bookmarks for easy navigation.

The documentation must be self-explanatory and have the necessary references / references to associated documents and drawings. All technical documentation must have a unique document number, revision code, FDV number and revision number in the title block / title field.

A4 format must be used for technical text documents, see appendix 1. A3 format can be used for tables / sketches, and the like that are included in technical text documents. All pages in technical documents must have a header with the document title, document number, date, revision number and page number (page x of y). All signature fields on the front page must be filled in with initials. 2D. Signed by the person who prepared the drawing / revision. 2E. Signed by the person who checked the drawing / revision. 2F. Signed by the person who has approved the drawing / revision. Field 2E (checked by) and field 2F (approved by) can not be signed by the same person.

AutoCAD files with x-ref files must be checked and packaged (zipped) before handing over to the FDV archive.

Completion of title fields for technical drawings shall be prepared based on Bane NOR's template, see Appendix 3 - Template Title block for Technical Drawing. Project members can order / download a standard plug-in template (PTG - Project Template Generator) to AutoCAD to complete the title field from this link:

The title field should be legible and should always be placed in the bottom right corner. Unless otherwise specifically agreed, technical drawings shall not consist of several pages. All signature fields on the front page must be filled in with a user ID and the supplier must send a signature list to the contract area, which must be updated at all times. The person conferencing and approving the documentation must not be the same person. Deviations from the above design requirements are only permitted after approval by Bane NOR's project manager. The approval must be documented.

Naming of technical documents and drawings

Administrative documents: <Project name> - “document type, name”

Example: ERTMS Experience section East Line - Organization map

Generic Documentation (GP / GA): Generic Product - “Product Type”, “Product Name” - “Document Type” Generic Application - “Product Type”, “Product Name” - “Document Type”

Example: Generic Product - EBITRACK2000, Shaft Counter System Installation Description Generic Application - CBSS_BV_L2 - ETCS Level 2 - System Description AIRTECH - TYPE XYZZA Cooling System - Maintenance Manual

Specific application (SA): Track Track, «subject» - «Product type», «Product name» - «document type»

Example: Østfold line east line, (Ski) - (Sarpsborg), ETCS / IL- LOP_01 Local Operator Space - Functional description

Site-specific documentation: Course Course section, “Location”, subject ”-“ document type ”

Example: Østfold line east line, (Ski) - (Sarpsborg), Plots Station, ETCS / IL - Plan and cable plan

The file name must be the same for all versions of the document during the project's lifetime (without the use of date, rev, or other terms)

Document Numbering

All technical documents and drawings produced under the auspices of the project (suppliers, subcontractors or internally) shall bear a unique document number in accordance with this procedure. The document management manager or equivalent role administers and assigns serial number series to the project and its contracting parties.

The document number consists of: project code, parcel code (area division), subject code and a 5-digit serial number separated by a hyphen. In addition, all documentation must have an audit number to satisfy follow-up of the document's history. The revision number is not part of the document number.

Document Numbering Structure

All documents and drawings must have the following format in the code structure:

Project code Parcel code Document type Serial number

Table 1: Document numbering structure

Examples: URH-00-A-00001, see chapter 6.3.4-7 for an overview of which codes (project code, parcel code, document type and serial number) apply to this project.

Project code

This code consists of 3 letters that tell which project in Bane NOR the document belongs to. The code must be included as part of the numbering structure for technical documentation.

Code Description
<XXX> <enter project name>

Table 2: Project code (The table will be expanded as needed) <Project code is defined by the document management manager in collaboration with the project manager>

Parcel - “area / stretch”

This code consists of 2 characters (numeric). The code identifies the project's area division. If the document has no reference to parcel, 00 (zero, zero) must be used.

Code Description
00 General / Generic documentation
<XX> <enter description>

Table 3: Parcel (The table will be expanded as needed)

<parcel codes are defined by the document management manager in collaboration with the project manager>

Subject codes

Specification of subject codes in the project is governed by requirements in the Technical Regulations. Subject codes are used to distinguish between the documentation for the various subjects in the project. There is one professional code for engineering and another for documentation for administrative purposes. The subject code for engineering shall be used to group the technical documentation into topics and consist of one character. See the table below.

Subject codes are used to distinguish between the documentation of the various subjects involved in the project. There is one professional code for engineering and another for documentation for administrative purposes. Subject code engineering shall be used to group the technical documentation to which topic they deal, and consists of one character.

(FIXME: Review the planning phases. There is a lot of debris here. And the design supervisor should not be in control of what the subject codes mean.)

The following subject codes for engineering are used:

Table 4: Document type

Serial number

The serial number consists of five digits. This number is the unique identifier that identifies the document within each project, parcel and document type. There can thus be several documents with the same serial number, as long as the combination of project, parcel and document type is different.

Manufacturer Subject area / Responsibility Serial Number Series
Bane NOR self-produced All subject areas 00001-09999
<enter manufacturer> <enter subject / responsibility area> <enter series>

Table 5: Serial number (The table will be expanded as needed)

<Serial number series are defined by the document management manager or equivalent role in collaboration with the project manager>


Agreed with the document manager

Model structure

For larger 3D models, a separate text document must be established which is audited in the usual way. All model files must be listed in the document. The actual shipment must be highlighted / marked so that they are easy to identify.

Figure 3: Model structure

Delivery frequency and richness of detail can vary from project to project.


The revision number of a document or drawing is a sequential number that increases by 1 each time a new revision of the document / drawing is officially published. For official releases (revisions), the revision code will also consist of a status code that states the purpose of the release. Two (2) digits are used to ensure correct (alphanumeric) sorting in lists and reports. Note that the revision number is not part of the document number. It is a requirement that the counter in the revision number increases for each release. This means that there should be no more variants of the same number (00C, 00D, 00U etc.) of a document or a drawing. There shall be no gaps in the revision series for a document or drawing. All official publications shall be treated as revisions and are thus covered by the rules of this procedure. The revision number should always start at 00 (first release), then the counter should continuously increase for each release. An official revision must always be combined with the release status (see table below).

Revision letter Description Example
A Concept / solution proposal In the event of changes, the serial number is increased. In the field «The revision applies», only the following must be stated: Concept / solution proposal and any short description of the change from the previous revision. 00A, 01A, ……
B Tender basis B-revision shall be used in the preparation of tender drawings / documents. In the event of changes, the audit's serial number (03B, 04B, etc.) is increased. 02B, 03B, …..
C Working document / drawing C-revision shall be used on drawings and documents issued for construction and installation. In the event of changes after this, the serial number (05C, 06C, etc.) is increased. 04C, 05C, …..
D As built D-revision shall be used on drawings and documents issued after construction and installation. In the event of changes after this, increase the serial number (07D, 08D, etc.)
In the field «Revision applies», only: «As built» and any short description of change from the previous revision.
06D, 07D, …..
E System documentation and / or documentation of a general nature E-audit shall be used for general / generic documentation (management system, project manuals, organization charts, system documentation / product documentation, standard user manuals, data sheets, etc.) and general documentation that is not directly related to construction and installation activities.
In the field «Revision applies» only the reason for the publication and possibly a short description of the change from the previous revision shall appear. Descriptions such as «For comment / approval», «For information», «For consultation» and the like should be avoided as this should be stated in the purpose of the submission.
U Deleted Documents / drawings that have previously been published and that are to be deleted are affixed to the next serial number and status U-expired- on the document itself (09U, 10U, etc.). A U-revision must thus be treated in the same way as other publications. appear: Expired and any brief description of the change from the previous revision. 08U

Table 6: Release status

The figure below shows how the letters are typically used in different project phases. The number of revisions per phase may vary.

Study Master plan Detailed plan / tender basis Construction plan / production Final phase / handover
Generic documentation (not phase dependent) 00E 01E 02E 03E 04E
Cross-phase documentation 00A 01a 02B 03B 04C 05C 06D

Final documentation

Upon completion of the project, all are documented and archived as building drawings according to håndtering av teknisk dokumentasjon, and the project's PSD. The documentation will then have a new documentation number with a professional code for documentation and a new drawing number in the title field.
