Migration Strategies – Who Needs Them!


A large number of route upgrade programmes that include projects covering disciplines such as signalling, the permanent way, stations, overhead electrification, ticketing, traffic management and other capability improvements are planned within control period 6 within the UK railway industry.  These individual improvement programmes shall lead to a step change in capability that require an integrated and united systems engineering process and migration strategy in order to realise their benefits effectively.

Programme management processes align project outputs to benefits so that benefit realisation can be managed, measured and delivered.  The programmatic, technical, time phasing and assurance approach and benefits realisation should be addressed in an effective Migration Strategy.  The Migration Strategy provides the vision and stakeholder agreed guidance to implement and put into service the new integrated capabilities so that objectives are met within the performance, cost, time and risk parameters agreed by stakeholders.

However, implementation of these route programmes is not merely complicated, it is complex with multiple dependencies, interactions and emergent behaviours, requiring expensive and comprehensive testing programmes to mitigate the impact.

This presentation will highlight these areas of concern and provide systems engineering approaches that complement the programmatics so that major risks can be mitigated and benefit realisation maximised.

The System Engineering approaches covered in this presentation are:

1)  Modelling and Simulation;

2)  Architectural analysis; and

3)  Model Based Systems Engineering

The objective is to show how these methods could be implemented in a manner that is consistent with a route’s business and renewals strategy and are easy to communicate to stakeholders.

The speakers are Mike Morua and Karl King.  They are systems engineers and members of INCOSE and are both currently employed at Frazer-Nash Consultancy as Senior Consultants. Both have experience of the development and delivery of large rail projects involving infrastructure, signalling, telecommunications and rolling stock including such complex upgrade projects as ETCS and CBTC systems.  Mike has experience in defence telecommunications and energy infrastructure projects and has worked in the US and Australia.  Karl has worked on major rail projects, specialising in Command Control and Signalling Programmes, including ERTMS, CBTC and Traffic Management for projects such as Crossrail, Thameslink and the Victoria Line Upgrade Programme.  He has also worked on major railway upgrades in the Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Germany, USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Mozambique, Guinea, Taiwan, India, Kuala Lumpur, Panama, Brazil, UAE and Israel.

The meeting will take place at WSP House, 70 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1AF (meeting rooms 1-05/06). 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, Michael Morua on m.morua@fnc.co.uk or 07763 455171.

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.

For further information about the RIG, see www.incoseonline.org.uk and follow the ‘Groups’ link.

The Enterprise! The challenge and limitations of Traditional Systems Engineering Methods!


 

Abstract

 

Enterprises are highly complex systems of people and technologies that are entities in their own right, which are prone to gross structural inefficiencies and failures to the extent of causing great societal harm and economic loss. Systems engineering (SE) is an interdisciplinary methodology for understanding, designing and enabling system solutions for complex problems and, as such is uniquely suited to offer understanding and solutions in the domain of enterprises.

 

This presentation includes observations of the Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research (SESAR) Programme and the evolving demands for new approaches!

 

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and open discussion session.

 

Suitable for: Systems Engineers of any level of experience who have an interest in Enterprise Systems.

 

 

John Lomax: John Lomax is a Programme Systems Engineer with over 30 years of experience gained mainly across the Aerospace, Defence, and Air-traffic Management Domains, and currently works for Communications, Intelligence & Security (CIS), AIRBUS. He has previously worked for BAE SYSTEMS and

 

for periods at Lockheed Martin and at the SESAR Joint Undertaking. He has worked in various countries including Saudi Arabia, USA, Belgium, and France. He has recently returned from a 7-year expatriation providing direct Customer Liaison to the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU) European Commission Agency of the Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research (SESAR) Modernization Programme located in Brussels Belgium. He is an INCOSE CSEP and INCOSE CAR.

Systems Thinking, Innovation and Railways: Can We Make it Happen?


 

The Rail Technical Strategy (RTS) sets the UK’s vision of a technology-driven better railway system for the country, creating a framework for research and development. This is complemented by the recently published Capability Delivery Plan (CDP) defining the specific steps that need to be taken in order to achieve the vision. Similarly, and perhaps surprisingly, our European counterparts are following an equivalent approach with the publication of the Shift2Rail updated Multi Annual Action Plan (MAAP) which includes a vision and a catalogue of railway innovation capabilities and a roadmap defining how to achieve these. In addition, this is mirrored at international level by the UIC producing a research and innovation strategy including a capabilities plan. Can all this alignment mean that we finally can have some joined up thinking on how to carry out research and innovation that is relevant and with real impact? Where does systems thinking fit in all this?

 

The talk will have two distinct parts. It will introduce and explore the aspects described above, followed by an overview of a practical example linked to one of the capabilities identified in these strategic plans. Specifically, an overview will be presented of a current UK research project developing a new braking system concept for overall system capacity improvements.

 

Roberto Palacin has 20 years experience as an academic working on research related to rail and transport systems. He is currently leading a Railway Systems Research Group at Newcastle University as well as being degree program director for mechanical and systems engineering. Roberto has been involved in research projects on subjects such as strategic development of transport systems, energy efficiency of urban and mainline rail systems, urban mobility and sustainability, development of innovative railway concepts, energy optimisation of rail systems, intermodality of the European rail network and development of modular concepts for high-speed. Roberto’s research interests revolve around two main aspects, application of a systems approach to energy conservation and human-systems interaction and include mobility and mass-capacity in the context of MaaS (urban and long distance), improving railways energy efficiency, connectivity and the development of ergonomic and design-led railway environments.
