Requirements Capture, Analysis & Specification using UML/SysML


It is often difficult to gain an overall appreciation of the problem definition, or indeed one’s own solution, from routine and often meaningless lists, so Michelle has tried to promote the benefits of using UML and SysML to graphically represent requirements. Until recently, Michelle had only seen these languages used for articulating software specifications or safety requirements....

EA, IA, O – Enterprise Architecture in the Rail Domain


Systems Engineering was introduced to manage the complexity risk in large projects to replace, merge, augment and transition major mission critical systems.

The success of SE has allowed more difficult and risky projects to be tackled which in turn has stimulated additional disciplines. This evolutionary cycle promises approaches to more “wicked” problems in “complex adaptive systems” as seen in the non-military evolution of “business capability” involving people, competencies and technical systems.

The presentation will explore the challenges of the expanded problem domain and attempt to position the relationships between the disciplines.

Towards Visualisations of Configuration Management


One of the principal areas of concern for managing large programmes is the management of risk associated with change. The central issue is one of communication. This presentation proposes better methods of communicating change. An illustration of this is shown using the Victoria Line Upgrade project, where a visualisation of the configuration has improved communication. Areas of success are highlighted and a number of improvement areas identified.

The Systems Engineering Competency Framework and Guidelines and How They Could be Applied to Rail


The Systems Engineering Competency Framework and Guidelines documents were developed in response to an issue identified by the INCOSE UK Advisory Board (UKAB).whose member organisations wanted a common language with which to describe and discuss the competencies that are required to conduct good systems engineering. The objective was ‘to have a measurable set of competencies for systems engineering which will achieve national recognition and will be useful to the enterprises represented by the UKAB’.

Systems Engineering in Railways


The INCOSE UK Rail Interest Group (RIG) is proud to be working with the IET to put on a one-day seminar at the IET's premises in Savoy Place, London on 11th November 2009 in 'Systems Engineering in Railways'.

The seminar, delivered by senior figures within the rail industry, will illustrate the manner in which systems engineering techniques are becoming increasingly essential for modern railway engineers. Subtitled ‘Making it work for you’, the seminar will be of value to anyone needing to understand the benefits of systems engineering techniques in a railway environment as well as providing an opportunity for systems engineers to explore the current state of the art in rail systems engineering.

There is an optional ,pre-seminar tutorial to ensure that the seminar is fully accessible to the non-expert so, after you have taken a look yourself, please consider passing the details on to any colleagues who might benefit from a better appreciation of systems engineering in railways.

The programme is available at http://www.theiet.org/events/2009/systems-engineering-prog-280909.pdf and more general details are on the IET web-site at http://www.theiet.org/events/2009/railway-systems.cfm. You will also find details of how to book your place at the seminar on this page. Please note that you cannot book for this event via INCOSE UK - the IET is handling all bookings. If you cannot find the answer to your question on one of these web pages, please contact the RIG Chair, Bruce Elliott on bruce.elliott@arbutus-tc.co.uk

How not to do Systems Engineering


Until now, Rail Interest Group events have been designed to serve positive systems engineers who are working hard to make their project a success. We are now pleased to provide an event for the community of project saboteurs. In the informal environment of the function room at the Duke of York pub in Fitzrovia, a number of experienced systems engineers will describe their favoured systems-related method of bringing a project to its knees. There will then be an opportunity for members to describe their own preferred methods and a discussion on which is most effective. The event will finish at 1830H but informal discussions may continue over a drink or two.

"Systems Engineering and the UK Transport System"


Duncan Kemp, the lead systems engineer for rail in the Department for Transport, will discuss the role of systems engineering in DfT. Duncan will outline the systems engineering challenges that the DfT is facing and some of the approaches they are using to ensure a whole of life, whole systems approach to rail.

• Reintegrating the Elephant: Using Microsoft Office to automate management of requirements


Click here to register via Eventbrite

In his presentation “Eating the Elephant: ETCS Requirements for GB railway” John Alexander of Network Rail described the Reference Design process that was implemented to elicit the GB specific requirements for the configuration of the ETCS product.  This involved the production of some 31 documents to describe various aspects of operation on the GB railway and the ETCS capabilities to be applied to those.  From these 31 documents 5 requirement sets were consolidated.

This presentation follows on from John’s and describes a number of toolsets developed by WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff to support and automate the processes for consolidation and documentation of the Reference Design itself and subsequent requirement specifications.

Tram / Train – A Systems Engineering Challenge


A talk by Giles Thomas

What is tram-train and can the concept bring benefits in the UK? In his talk Giles will explore the tram-train concept that has evolved in continental Europe and look at how the rail industry might benefit from of this emerging technology in the UK. The tram-train concept, that of inter-running vehicles that are designed for use on street tram systems and on the mainline railway, offers a significant opportunity for passenger market development in the UK. The concept, however, brings with it some significant system challenges

The State of Play in Railway Systems Engineering


A dozen or so RIG members attended the INCOSE International Symposium held in Utrecht in June 2008. There was a significant rail presence at the event with senior participation from Network Rail, London Underground, New York City Transit and Pro Rail and we all left convinced that rail SE is in the midst of a significant period of development, in some countries at least.

Head Up Displays for Trains


Interoperability, speed, increased safety, capacity, reliability and efficiency are the cornerstones of UK and European rail industry plans to remain competitive against road transport and low cost airlines over the next 20 years. The introduction of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) over the next 10-20 years supports these goals.

Space systems engineering: synergies with rail


While both the rail and space sectors maintain a transport infrastructure, at first glance they would appear to be very different indeed. In space passenger numbers are tiny, timetabling is trivial, vehicle reuse is patchy and for the space shuttle you have a ~2% chance of not coming home.

Integrating Stations into the Wider Railway


Systems engineering is being applied to the Public Private Partnership [PPP] delivery programme of Metronet for stations, signalling and trains. Within this wider context, Atkins has derived a Comprehensive Approach to Systems Engineering [CASE] which includes some novel interpretations of the traditional systems engineering methods to make them representative of the built environment of the railway. CASE was developed to meet a demanding delivery programme whose key drivers are station delivery dates.
