Systems Integration for Delivery: A Network Rail Programme for Change


Systems Integration for Delivery: A Network Rail Programme for Change

 Kevin Gedge, Network Rail

 Wednesday, 2nd October 2019, York
1700H Doors open, 1730H-1830H Event

Delivering integrated railway infrastructure in the environment of increased complexity, coupled with commercial pressures is difficult at the best of times. On top of this, ethical issues, timescales, cost, societal expectations, resources, competencies, business needs, legislation and standards all appear to be conflicting energies unleashed on project teams.

Over the past year, Network Rail has been embarking on a change programme entitled Systems Integration for Delivery (SI4D), this is vital to improving passenger experience and to delivering a reliable, safe, secure, operable, maintainable and performing railway. This change programme embeds Systems Integration capability across the industry to improve the delivery of capital projects including provision of supporting processes, procedures, tools, guides and training. In his presentation Kevin Gedge intends to outline the SI4D framework, its application to projects and how it will impact individuals on projects from sponsors and project managers through to suppliers and third parties.

Kevin Gedge is a Network Rail Principal Engineer and Network Rail Technical Fellow. Kevin works within the discipline of Systems Integration and is both a Chartered Engineer and Certified Systems Engineering Professional. Kevin’s experience spans Defence, aviation and most recently the railway industry; where after working as a systems engineer on the Northern Hub programme, his recent work has been within the engineering headquarters organisation. This has been focused on the development, roll out and application of the Systems Integration for Delivery framework to projects, programmes and portfolios of work for Network Rail.

The meeting will take place at Jacobs, 20 George Hudson Street, York YO1 6WR. Arrive at the lobby and sign in for Jacobs – Photo ID will be required

There is no charge for attendance and the event is open to non-members but places must be booked in advance. To book, obtain directions or to ask any other questions, please contact RIG Organiser, Mike Morua on m.morua@fnc.co.uk or 07763455171. Please let me know of any special requirements.

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is an international professional society for systems engineers whose mission is to foster the definition, understanding, and practice of world-class systems engineering in industry, academia, and government

The INCOSE UK Rail Interest Group has been formed:

  • To provide a forum for those interested in Systems Engineering in rail to network in a less formal environment, to exchange good practice and to provide mutual support in an area which can require some sustained perseverance;
  • To promote, improve and share the practice of Systems Engineering within the rail industry;

  • To foster connections with other professional bodies within rail and thereby promote cross fertilisation of knowledge and experience across sectors and community disciplines; and

  • To promote awareness of INCOSE UK and encourage membership within the rail industry.

Requirements Management for AI Breakfast Briefing


Today’s software and systems engineers face unprecedented challenges amidst rising complexity in product development. Industry research shows that 47 percent of projects fail due to poor requirements management.

When we inject AI into the requirements writing phase of your projects, software and systems engineers can:

  • Reduce errors: The requirements analysis phase takes up only 2 percent of total design time. But poor requirements account for more than half of all engineering errors.
  • Reduce costs: The cost of correcting errors increases exponentially as a project progresses. Decrease product development costs and delays by catching errors early and reducing rework.
  • Strengthen requirements: Isolate requirement issues before they are sent for manual human review. Receive suggestions for improvement based upon a score provided by Watson.

Join IBM to hear about the latest industry trends and discover how IBM is helping our customers embrace the necessary and inevitable digital transformation within their requirements management to help engineers improve the quality of their requirements, in real time.

Secure by Design

 Matt Simpson, Atkins and Darren Hepburn, Network Rail

 Wednesday, 18th September 2019, London
1700H Doors open, 1730H-1830H Event

With an increased adoption of digital information technology in our modern railways, and the requirement for greater interconnected systems driven to improve operational performance, reliability and customer journey satisfaction, the cyber security threat landscape is dramatically increased which risk the availability and safety of modern railway systems. Matt Simpson and Darren Hepburn will explore what can be done to counter the increased security risk by the adoption of a risk management framework proven within Network Rail.  

Matt Simpson is the Professional Head of Cyber Security and a Technical Director at Atkins. Darren Hepburn is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Network Rail. Together they will present an overview on the current application of Security Assurance Frameworks, built on proven security, systems and safety engineering standards that are being used to secure complex operational railway systems and future digital signalling technologies. They will subsequently facilitate a discussion on the current and future development of the area, and the challenges it faces.

Matt Simpson is a Chartered Systems Engineer and the Professional Head of Cyber Security for Atkins Global. Matt’s area of expertise and experience includes industrial cyber security, transport security, security cases within safety system assurance, secure SCADA architecture and the Internet of Things. Matt has designed and implemented cyber security programmes and he managed the delivery of complex security solutions for global engineering organisations, the defence sector and UK critical national infrastructure providers including Transport for London and Network Rail.

Darren Hepburn is an experienced Cyber Security Professional who has led senior Information Security and Architect teams in a range of domains before taking up the role of Network Rail Telecoms CISO in 2012. Since then, Darren’s remit has grown to include the security of not only the Telecoms systems but Power SCADA and Signalling, Command and Control Systems that are critical to safe and reliable UK rail operations.  Darren represents the Network Rail security team at several UK and European groups where he actively advocates for embedding cyber security into railway systems and processes to ensure cyber resilient operations.

The meeting will take place at Nova North, 11 Bressenden Place, Westminster, London SW1E 5BY (Arrive at the lobby and identify yourself at the security. Someone from SNC-Lavalin/Atkins will escort you

Solving the Resilience Problem in Digital Railway


 

Designing safety critical systems like signalling and train control is arguably the most important job on the modern railway. While physical infrastructure and rolling stock continue to rely on tried-and-tested designs, signalling is undergoing a transformation with the introduction of the Digital Railway.

 

Our networks are increasingly congested, with more and varied traffic types. As we move toward a dynamically controlled model within this complex ecology, our ability to manage complexity and to assure the systems to the same level of safety integrity must evolve with the technology.

 

To achieve this, we need to facilitate a new management approach that incorporates a more targeted level of risk modelling. By progressively assessing system design – using data collected across the system lifecycle – we can continually refine a design and test its resilience, making enhancements as well as corrections where standards are deficient or non-existent. In doing so, we put system risk engineering back in the hands of the signalling engineers.
