1.1   Introduction
The OpRa work scope is the definition of a minimum set of Public Transport raw data needed as PT quantitative analysis enabling factor. To obtain this considering all the several aspects involved in this complex domain, the work has been conducted through the following phases:
1)   assessment;
2)   use cases definition and classification;
3)   indicators definition;
4)   raw data identification.
OpRa work does not go into the field of service quality measurement and reporting: service quality analysis will of course use data provided by OpRa, but quality definition remains a contractual level issue between a Public Transport Authority and a Public Transport Operator or an operator’s internal choice for a purely private service. OpRa mainly only reports unbiased actual data (i.e. measured or observed), described and aggregated in a shared and understandable way.
The OpRa work documented in detail in this document is coherent with EU Directive 2010/40. In particular, it relates to the Article 4  of the Delegated Regulation EU 2017/1926 , as regards the historic data. OpRa proposes to complement NeTEx (dedicated to the static scheduled information), for the historic data based on the underlying conceptual data reference model Transmodel EN 12896, similarly to the requirement of the Delegated Regulation EU 2017/1926 referring to the static scheduled information .
1.2   Assessment phase
The assessment phase has been conducted studying the following aspects:
•   national scenarios for public transport raw data and statistics exchange, to identify indicators needs and usage;
•   public transport KPI definition in research projects to consider what has been already done in literature and research;
•   relations with public transport EU norms, to be coherent with already existent PT norms.
Moreover, involved actors and stakeholders have been identified like: Public Transport Authority (PTA), Public Transport Agencies, Public Transport Operator (PTO), system integrators and passengers, analysing public transportation Planning and Operation process, that have been divided into five main stages to group all the activates that characterize the Public Transport Service:
•   strategic planning: definition of network elements (lines, stops), main service parameters (vehicles sizes, operation intervals, service intervals for important time demand types), and guaranteed interchanges are planned;
•   tactical planning: operators plan their resource usage (vehicles, rolling stock, personnel), with detailed timetables for each resource unit;
•   before travel: all planned networks and timetables are published. Passengers and other types of clients can plan their use of the offered transportation services via printed and electronic media, and make their reservations as needed;
•   in-travel: the transportation service is conducted. Real-time information exchange is available while this takes place and can be recorded;
•   study and control: in this stage, operators and authorities review the history of actual operations, which could lead to improvements through operational changes, or an optimization of strategic and tactical planning.
The PTA and PTO are interested in all the defined stages, meanwhile from the passenger point of view; only the last three stages are relevant (all the preparation work being hidden).
During the assessment the most relevant research projects results have been considered and a deep analysis of the roles and usage of Public Transport Standards have been completed to guarantee a coherent approach of OpRa.
The first four stages are under the scope of NeTEx (Network Timetable Exchange) and SIRI (Service Interface for Real Time Information) and the last stage is the additional scope to be covered by OpRa. All these standards are compliant with the European Public Transport Reference Data Model (Transmodel).

Photovoltaic (PV) modules are electrical devices intended for continuous outdoor exposure during their lifetime. Existing type approval standards do not consider mechanical stresses that may occur during transportation to the PV installation destination.
This part of IEC 62759 describes methods for the simulation of transportation of complete package units of modules and combined subsequent environmental impacts.
This standard is designed so that its test sequence can co-ordinate with those of IEC 61215 so that a single set of samples may be used to perform both the transportation simulation and performance evaluation of a photovoltaic module design.This standard applies to flat plate photovoltaic modules.
