The management policy of infrastructures and equipments (e.g.: hydraulic, solar, sanitary, educational, etc.) disseminated throughout the country, particularly in rural areas, generally difficult to access, is a major challenge for the technical services of the State. The remote monitoring System proposed in this paper aims to offer to organizations in charge of the management of infrastructures and equipments a platform that allows them to find out in real time how the equipments work and to detect any failures. In the present study, this paper presents a general framework for Infra Sen approach for real time monitoring of remote installations. We use the FMECA method in order to identify vulnerable equipments and analyze their Effects and their criticality. The solution proposed has been applied to the hydraulic installation at Niamone in the department of Bignona, in Ziguinchor region, in Senegal.
