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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
