Whole Life Cost Modelling for the Tube


I am pleased to announce our first event for the Autumn session:

Whole Life Cost Modelling for the Tube, Stephen Jones, LU, 1700H for 1730H, Wednesday, 10th September 2014, RSSB, Block 2, Angel Square, 1 Torrens Street, London EC1V 1NY.

Stephen Jones is a Systems Engineer at London Underground. He will describe how systems thinking is being applied to whole life cost and some of the practical problems encountered. The presentation will examine the enterprise-level requirement and will review different solutions taken from UK history and overseas practice. For the New Tube for London, Stephen will describe how LU are scaling the whole life cost approach up to line level and how this can focus development on those key activities that drive cost over the programme and asset life cycles.

There is no charge for attendance at this event but places must be booked in advance. Bookings for this event are now open. To book, obtain directions or for any other questions, please contact me at bruce.elliott@arbutus-tc.co.uk or on +44 (0)7970 694043.

Bookings are now open. To book, obtain directions or for any other questions, please contact me at bruce.elliott@arbutus-tc.co.uk or on +44 (0)7970 694043.

Railway Operations and Systems Engineering Workshop: Putting whole railway conception into practice on railway projects


Cancelled due to insufficient bookings. We hope to rearrange the workshop for another date.

Systems Engineering is intrinsically a collaborative discipline. INCOSE UK has organised successful workshops in collaboration with various other institutions. For example, we held a joint workshop with the Associate for Project Management in January 2013, which marked the beginning of a very fruitful collaboration.  We are now delighted to be working with the Institution of Railway Operators (IRO) - an organisation whose members are used to conceiving the whole railway as a system - to organise a workshop to explore how we might integrate technical and operational assets of railway projects better.  This is a timely opportunity to tackle a topic of huge importance and a symbol, at the start of INCOSE UK's third decade, of our continuing outward-looking and collaborative nature.   The workshop is focussed the rail industry but participants from other sectors that are also interested in fostering more productive relationships between systems engineers and operators are welcome. For  further information and details of how to book, please see the attached flyer.

Moving Modelling into the Mainstream


It is a particular pleasure to welcome Nigel back. We have had a few presentations on the modelling work going on at Network Rail and each presentation adds real progress and new ideas to the one before. Not only has each been fascinating in its own right, the progression has made me feel more optimistic about the world. I commend Nigel's presentation to you. If you want to attend, there is no charge but please book your place by emailing me at at bruce.elliott@arbutus-tc.co.uk.

Systems Engineering Considerations for the Application of Augmented Reality in an Operational Railway Environment


Augmented Reality mixes virtual and actual reality by supplementing a view of the real world with added computer generated sensory inputs in the form of graphics, video, sound and location data. Neil Hall of TfL and Chris Lowe of Liv Systems Ltd will describe how SE can facilitate the successful introduction of this exciting new technology into the operational railway environment, drawing upon research that they have recently carried out.  More details are in the attached flyer.

How could systems thinking help rail adopt new technology and improve faster? Oliver Bratton, MTR Corporation Ltd


Please note the slightly non-standard start time.

Oliver Bratton is Operations Director, European Business, for MTR Corporation Ltd and will provide his personal point of view about how systems thinking may be used to leverage rail technology to get the best outcome for passengers.

If you are thinking of coming along, do try and get there at 1730H for for AGM. Our AGMs are quick and low-peril - no-one gets dragooned onto the committee - but they are your opportunity to hold us to account. If you might want to join the committee, however, we should be pleased to hear from you in advance - give me a call.

Management of Interfaces in the Rail industry


Paul has held senior positions in INCOSE, academia and the defence and rail sectors, which gives him an unusually broad viewpoint on good and not-so-good practice in managing interfaces. Paul will point out some some quite basic gaps in the way in which we manage interfaces and outline some specific problems about managing interfaces in rail before suggesting some best-practice heuristics and principles that may guide improved practice.

Visit to Thameslink Systems Integration Laboratory


Here is something new: a site visit, in this case the systems integration laboratory where the Thameslink project is integrating and testing new ETCS and ATO technology in a simulated rail environment in Southwark. There will also be an opportunity to learn about the other phases of testing in the Hertford Loop and in the Thameslink core. We are grateful to Network Rail for the opportunity to explore the right hand side of the 'V' lifecycle and to demonstrate that it is possible to get one's hands dirty with more than whiteboard marker ink while doing systems engineering.

Progressive Defence in Depth: Prioritising and Managing Risk in Transport


Robin and Peter will be describing methods of measuring some important characteristics of in-service systems: the safety of transportation systems and the maturity of safety management systems. For more details see the flyer attached.
Note that, for this event only, we are trialling a slightly longer format so the presentable will finish at 1900H instead of the usual 1830H (all of the other presentations are an hour long as usual).

Panel discussion: SE and Money


We often run something light-hearted and different in December. This year we are running something deadly serious and different. The relationship between SE and money is at the heart of the value that SE can add to rail projects and yet it is a troubled relationship. Three speakers will present three different perspectives on the issue and then we'll work together to try and find some practical ways of making things better. Putting the world completely right may require continued work in the pub afterwards. There are still a few details to pin down, including the venue and I will write again when these are sorted but, if you see enough to whet your appetite, you are welcome to book now.

Keeping London Moving During the London 2012 Games


Having seen how well London's tube, DLR, buses, trams and so on functioned as a joined-up system during last Summer's Games, I have been hugely curious to know to what extent that success was the product of good systems thinking and to what extent it was the product of good thinking of other varieties. I am therefore truly delighted that Mark Evers, who was TfL's Director of Games Transport at the time, has agreed to talk to us. Mark will speak on the topic of Keeping London Moving During the London 2012 Games at Network Rail's offices in 1 Eversholt Street, Euston at 1730H on Tuesday, 16th July 2013. You will find a few more details in the attached flyer.

What is going on in UK rail systems engineering?


A useful side benefit of regular attendance at RIG events is building up a picture of what is going on in UK rail systems engineering but it does take a little while for the picture to emerge. This session is focussed on building that picture in one hour. We invite you to come along and talk for no more than 3 minutes about what your organisation is doing in rail SE. You are encouraged to send me one slide in advance which we will have ready for you to speak to but you can talk without a slide if you want to. (And you can just listen as well.)

If the RIG membership doesn’t let us down (and it never has in the past), participants will leave the session with a more comprehensive overview of who is doing what in UK rail systems engineering than anyone else on the planet.
