The Single European Sky - Challenges to Traditional SE Approaches


 

Bristol Local Group welcomes John Lomax, from Airbus, to kick off the first workshop in 2019. 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. Using the Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research (SESAR) Programme as an example, John invites the Bristol Local Group to discuss and identify Systems Engineering approaches that work and areas where improvement and innovation is needed. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and open discussion session.

 

This talk was first given to North West Group on 4th December 2018.

 

John 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, and previously at the SESAR Joint Undertaking. 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.

Collective Intelligence through Structured Dialogue


 

Systems Engineers often need to engage with stakeholders and address complex or wicked problems.  Structured Dialogic Design is a methodology that evolved from the field of Interactive Management in the US starting in the 1980s. In its various forms (and under different names) it has been widely applied across the globe in enabling groups to tackle wicked problems and complex challenges, but is not well known in the UK. The Bristol team were therefore delighted when Peter Miles accepted our invitation to talk with us about Structured Dialogue and his experience of applying it in the UK, with clients including the MoD, Rolls Royce and NHS. This presentation will outline the methodology, its provenance, and the current state of practice.

 

 

 

Peter Miles is based in Manchester and is an associate of Demosophia LLC in the US. He is also Vice-chair of Stockport & District Mind, an RSA Fellow, and until recently a non-executive director of SCiO, a community of systems thinking practitioners. Peter has worked in process consulting since 2004, when he set up a business to bring the collaborative processes developed by John Warfield and Aleco Christakis to clients in the UK. Prior to that he was CEO of a division of Teradyne Inc., a business he helped to develop from a start-up. Peter has BSc. and MSc. degrees in Electronics and is a Chartered Engineer.

Creating digital twins for operational and strategic decision support at scale


 

Creating digital twins for operational and strategic decision support at scale

 

Dr Nicolas Le Glatin, OpenSpace

 

Tuesday, 12th March 2019, London
1700H Doors open, 1730H-1830H Event

 

The use of digital twins to provide operational and strategic decision support are gaining popularity as computing networks, integrated databases, visualisation technology and improved software tools enable their use. Visual data fusion platforms can be used to unite the disciplines of design and operation of spaces, putting the movement and experience of people at the heart of the process. The platform integrates a variety of data sources to allow practitioners to unify the lifecycle of the asset from dynamically evaluating, refining and communicating designs at an early design stage through to monitoring, analysing and forecasting the usage once the space is operational.

This presentation will cover the use of visual data platforms, in particular, OpenSpace to conduct advanced real-time pedestrian simulations to 'fill in the gaps' between known data points in order to deliver a complete overview of the system.  This modular approach allows for early decision making to be conducted before more complex and expensive system-of-system modelling is to be undertaken. Visual data platforms can combine in-depth operational insight with strategic tools delivering whole life-cycle benefits, to the following capabilities: 

 ·       Design - Evidence based design decision making derived from operational data

 ·       Operate - Real-time current system performance data, e2e across the network

 ·       Optimise - System-of-system performance, maximise retail opportunities & improve customer experience

 ·       Innovate - Discover & test new scenarios, business models and service designs

As part of Innovate UK’s First Of A Kind in Rail competition “Demonstrating tomorrow’s stations and a greener railway”, this presentation will discuss OpenSpace’s use as a data-driven simulation for the Thameslink core stations. This digital twin will, for the first time, will provide Thameslink Programme with a holistic picture of station operations delivering true insight into the operation (e.g. dwell time performance), movement and behaviour of people and their integration into the rail network.

Dr Nicolas Le Glatin is the founder and CEO of OpenSpace and an expert in the application of People Flow modelling & simulating technology. With  a  keen  eye  for  what  is  needed  to  meet  the  industry’s  needs  for  rapid,  intuitive  and  powerful simulation  tools,  Nicolas’s  career  has  seen  him  drive  some  of  the  most sophisticated  crowd  flow modelling  tools  in  the  industry (e.g. Legion) and real-time  optioneering  tool  to optimise  circulation  spaces.

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 will escort you to the 3rd floor).

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. Please let me know of any special requirements before the event.

RIVA: A Rigorous Approach to Business Process Management


 

A clear and rigorous description of an organisation’s business processes is a key prerequisite of many outputs in the Systems Engineering field and related disciplines. Bristol Local Group is delighted to welcome Martyn Ould to discuss the novel Riva method. Unlike many of the alternatives, Riva combines a rigorous notation with a practical analytical method, one that is currently being used in parts of the Defence and Research community to good effect.

 

With concurrency and collaboration at its heart, Riva is grounded in organisational theory rather than driven by the constraints of software modelling tools. It uses business concepts to describe businesses, rather than distorting the world to fit inappropriate software concepts. That said, it has strong formal underpinnings that ensure rigour and transparency in the resulting descriptions, more so than many other approaches that come from software engineering.

 

 

 

Martyn is the author of Business Process Management – a rigorous approach. During a varied career in Software Development, including teaching at Oxford University and University of West of England, Martyn became increasingly involved in Business Process Management, applying Riva in assignments with major organisations such as GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, and the Electricity Supply Board of Ireland, and with both national and local government. Now pretending to be retired, he was a Fellow of the British Computer Society and a Chartered Engineer.

Introduction to the Viable System Model (VSM)


Practitioners of systems thinking use the viable systems model (VSM), the minimum combination of systems laws to describe the necessary functions and conditions required for any organisation to independently survive and thrive within a changing environment by understanding and reacting to complexity inside and outside the organisation.


Existing viable systems can be diagnosed using VSM to identify  weaknesses predict issues and risks. New systems can be designed using VSM to improve efficiency, effectiveness and the ability to cope with complexity, thereby increasing the chances of surviving in a dynamic environment.


Two systems thinking practitioners, Dr. Niki Jobson (DSTL) and Jonathan
Higginbottom from Southampton City Council will discuss the “why, how and what” to use VSM in your work.

The talk is free and anyone interested in systems thinking and systems engineering is invited to attend

Systems Dynamics


Living Business Models through Systems Dynamics; A core Systems Engineering Capability

Living Business Models (LBMs) exploiting the system dynamics method are quantified, time-based simulations of any enterprise, function, issue or project. They not only replicate changes over time to system-performance but also changes occurring to all elements of the system generating those results. Building on rock-solid theoretical principles, the process and tools required are not technically complex. Indeed, building LBMs is easier, faster and more reliable than attempting the same task with the spreadsheet tools most often employed for time-based business modelling. With INCOSE promoting adoption of model-based systems engineering (MBSE), LBMs offer an opportunity to extend system engineers’ influence and contribution in many aspects of enterprise management.

The event will include an interactive demonstration, connectivity permitting. So please bring a laptop or tablet, if you wish to take part. This talk was presented at the Annual System Engineering Conference in 2018.

Kim is an experienced strategy professional, teacher and publisher of online courses and teaching resources on business modelling – fast becoming a main-stream capability for executives, consultants and business students. He is the author of the prize-winning Competitive Strategy Dynamics (Wiley, 2002), a major strategy textbook Strategic Management Dynamics (Wiley, 2008), and summary e-book now widely used in MBA and executive teaching – Strategy Dynamics Essentials (Kindle, 2011). He is also co-founder of Strategy Dynamics Ltd, which publishes "serious games" and other dynamics-related learning material for management, and the user-friendly modelling application, Sysdea.

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 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

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.
