EMEA Rail Integration Workshop Outbrief


EMEA Rail Integration Workshop Outbrief

 Mike Morua, Frazer-Nash

 Jan Verbeek, ADSE

 Wednesday, 6th November 2019, London
1700H Doors open, 1730H-1830H Event

 

Rail integration is occurring in more complex and rapidly changing environments.  As a result, upgrades and long- term development programmes can find themselves in difficulty when their management processes, architecture, governance, and migration strategy are either out of alignment, lacked sufficient planning or were late in responding to emergent and challenging situations.  These issues and more were discussed during the INCOSE EMEA workshop 2019 in Utrecht on October 11, 2019 in a session on Rail Integration.    This presentation will cover the conduct of the workshop, the exercises conducted with participants and their findings and recommendations.  The workshop used the Dutch Railways as the example.  However, our findings and summaries will be applied in a more general and generic environment so that these could be applied to mass transit in the UK and other global locations.

The workshop also addressed a variety of integration issues in order to identify a Generic System Integration Framework suitable for rail programmes and projects.   We will solicit the audience for ideas and considerations on this subject and add them to our Framework model.  We will discuss the Framework in terms of architecture, management processes, governance, and migration strategies.  Come with questions and ideas!

Mike Morua is a Senior Consultant in Systems Engineering at Frazer-Nash.  He has worked in Defence, Rail, Nuclear, Infrastructure and Digital domains as a systems engineer.  He is a member of INCOSE and PMI and is an ASEC and PMP practitioner.  He is on the committee of the INCOSE UK RIG, Bristol Local Group and INCOSE Transportation Group. His areas of interest are migration strategies and integrated PM, Sys Eng, Enterprise Architecture and Asset Mgt approaches.

Jan Verbeek is a Partner at ADSE and he is responsible for the aerospace business, industrial engineering consultancy and knowledge management.  He participated in the introduction of systems engineering at Fokker Aircraft.  He has supported Bombardier Aerospace, Airbus, NS/Nedtrain, Damen Shipbuilding and many other businesses.  He is a part time lecturer at TU Delft in production and life cycle analysis.  He specialises in introducing/improving system engineering practices in rolling stock modernisation and acquisition programs.

The meeting will take place at Jacob’s London office at Cottons Centre • London SE1 (Visitors should introduce themselves at Ground floor reception, and they will be given a pass up to the second floor. Please wait at the second floor lobby to be escorted to the room). 

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 07763 455171.

Please let me know of any special requirements.

Requirements Management with 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.

Engineering Connected Systems


Description:

 The world of systems and projects is joining up at such a pace that there is now a danger of practice running ahead of established theory. This problem is already evident in the field of Systems of Systems (SoS), where definitions have become problematic, and the distinction between systems and SoS increasingly hard to sustain.

 This talk will illustrate the problem with reference to examples drawn from real-world systems, and put forward a new synthesis which places interdependence at the centre, rather than other more usual factors such as independence. What emerges is a more integrated treatment, in which product families, componentisation, supply chains and operationally connected systems form part of a broad continuum, sharing a number of common features, with differences caused by such factors as point of integration, scale and intentionality. There will be some discussion of architectural issues, enterprise collaboration and emerging life cycles. The talk will conclude with some speculation about the boundaries for traditional systems engineering and what might lie beyond.

 Peter Brook Biography

 Peter has worked for over 40 years in the world of large-scale distributed systems, mainly in defence and security. He was Director of Systems Engineering for the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) in the late 1990s before being seconded to MOD to establish and run the Integration Authority, responsible for ensuring joined-up operation in a networked environment. Since then he has consulted widely across Government. In 2015-16, he undertook a series of NATO lectures on Systems of Systems, alongside Dr Judith Dahmann and Prof Mike Henshaw, focusing on Architecture and Enterprise issues.

 He is also a long-standing member of INCOSE having served on the Board of Directors between 1996-2000. He has been visiting professor at the Defence Academy, is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and an INCOSE Fellow.

EMEA Rail Integration Workshop - Challenges for System Integration in Rail Chaired by Mike Morua and Jan Verbeek


This year at the INCOSE EMEA workshop in Utrecht there will be a workshop session titled: Challenges for System Integration in Rail. The session will be chaired by myself, Mike Morua from Frazer-Nash. and Jan Verbeek from ADSE.
 
The Rail Integration workshop session will address problem areas within current and planned rail and urban/suburban transit schemes which will include:
 - Systems integration across the whole to include other transport networks and operating environment and their standards;
 - Changes to Environmental policies, CO2 reduction standards and population growth patterns;
 - Differences between "Green" and "Brown" sites;  - Increased digitalisation of rail operations, maintenance and passenger lifestyles;
 - Need to develop simulations and digital twins as part of the programme that are based on BIMS and other data architectures;
 - Need to work together despite large stakeholder groups and working over large distances.
 - Other areas that might come to mind.
 
The workshop session will also address a variety of integration issues and attempt to identify a Generic System Integration Framework that can be applied to these projects.  The Framework will consist of architecture, governance, migration strategies and processes that allow effective and reduced risk management of these complex projects.
 
We will focus on the Dutch Railway and mass transit capability however, our principles and summaries will be applied in a more general environment that will have ramifications for mass transit in the UK and other global locations.
 
The workshop session is not a RIG event and this notification is not an invitation to take part. Instead, I am writing to make you aware of this session and to provide you with an opportunity to send me your comments or observations that you would like us to address at the workshop. Please send any comments to m.morua@fnc.co.uk . 
 
I propose to make a presentation to the INCOSE RIG at a date to be determined in London later in October.  I will highlight  outcomes of the Rail Integration Workshop session. An email invitation will be sent when the date of that presentation is set.

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.
