International Workshop 2011 (IW 2011)


INCOSE's International Workshop is the event of the year for systems engineers to contribute to the state of the art. Unlike INCOSE's annual International Symposium and other conferences, there are no paper, panel or tutorial presentations. Instead, attendees spend 4 days working alongside fellow systems engineers who are there to make a difference. Systems Engineers at all levels and from all backgrounds are encouraged to engage in working sessions, and contribute their knowledge and experience to take the discipline forward.

INCOSE International Workshop: Transportation Working Group (London Satellite Session)


The RIG has strong connections with the INCOSE Transportation Working Group (TWG) and many RIG members are also TWG members. The TWG is an international working group, established to promote the development and tailored application of Systems Engineering (SE) best practices to ground transportation systems, with emphasis on roadways, rail, bus and metro. Generally its business is done by email and teleconference but INCOSE runs an International Workshop every year which provides an opportunity for working group members to meet face-to-face and accelerate progress. This year the International Workshop is being held in Phoenix, Arizona between 29th January and 1st February and the TWG will be there.

The RIG is pleased to offer the opportunity for UK members who cannot get to Phoenix but can get to London to participate in one of the TWG's workshops remotely. This is a rare opportunity to gain an insight into what is happening in SE in ground transportation at an international level and to work with key players to influence the direction of this work.

CWG Workshop


The primary objective of the workshop is to plan and launch the next round of CWG activities. For various reasons (which will be explained at the workshop) the plan is to progress the next round of activities between now and September 2011. Discussions during and after ASEC10 have established that there are two key aspects, technical activities and comms / exploitation, that need to be pursued. There may be other threads that should be pursued, however all activities are contingent on there being a quorum (nominally 4 to 10 people) who have the motivation and capacity to work on a particular thread.

A full agenda and directions can be found in the document link below. There is no charge for attending the workshop but you are asked to register by clicking on the link so that we can scale the catering.

Performance and Risk Modelling - Lessons from 30 years


Dick Vote is Chairman of the IMechE Safety and Reliability Group and a founder member of the Safety and Reliability Society where he is a member of Council. After several years doing front line engineering at sea he has increasingly specialised in performance and risk modelling. He was one of the very first users of the MoD Systems Availability Model and carried out the first validation of the predictions while also responsible for the machinery design project. His experience since then has been principally in oil and gas but also has carried out modelling for power generation and distribution systems, building services. The models have included “dynamic simulation” interactive mimics, reliability, availability and integrity assessments together with maintenance and support strategies. Aspects such as economics and revenue, from first principles are also described!

While it would be impossible to describe all this in detail in an hour, this presentation will describe the journey, the successes and the lessons learned and show how modelling using commercially available spreadsheets can be of advantage to the reliability and safety professional.

Nimrod and the MoD: missed opportunities and lessons for rail - Nigel Murphy, Followed by Local Group Meeting


6:00 PM Nigel Murphy, Technical Director of Atkins Systems Consultancy, will be relating the findings from a review conducted for the Dept. for Transport, which examined transferable lessons from experience in the defence sector, including the recent Nimrod inquiry, of the management of safety and integrity for the delivery of major complex programmes in the rail sector. Increasingly aged legacy systems, together with current economic circumstances pose significant challenges for systems engineers in the rail sector. The Atkins review team comprised a cross section of defence, rail and systems specialists as well as transport economics and planning professionals. It promises to be a stimulating and thought provoking insight into how we might learn from failure and the sacrifice of others. 6:45 PM Refreshments, Cheese and Wine will be served 7:15 PM Local Group Meeting There will be a short meeting of INCOSE members and prospective members to determine enthusiasm for establishing a programme of activities and re-establishing an active INCOSE local group in the Midlands. The discussion will be led by Professor Michael Henshaw, Academic Director for INCOSE UK.

Delivering the Right Transport System: Systems Engineering and Project Management in Harmony

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been cancelled


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 Tuesday 7 December 2010.

Is transport driving – or driven by – the economy?

In order to have a direct impact on steering the economy out of recession, the industry needs to have the right overall objectives AND intelligently combine cost, carbon, customer and capacity in a way that drives the right behaviours from ‘users’.

Of course, the industry faces a very real risk of becoming a victim of the prevailing economic conditions and the urge to cut, rather than invest intelligently.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology are pleased to present this one day seminar, in conjunction with representatives from the International Council on Systems Engineering’s (INCOSE) Rail Interest Group.

Join us at the headquarters of the IET for a seminar that will break down the typical project lifecycle, exploring good practice in “delivering the right transport system” and how this has been practically achieved with Systems Engineering and Project Management working in harmony.

  • How do Governments and Stakeholders get the Transport System they want?
  • How do we ensure that the financial crisis does not dwarf the ticking time bomb of Global Warming?
  • Can we realistically put Carbon at the heart of our commercial decisions?
  • How have successful transport projects blended Systems Engineering and Project Management to deliver what was required – on time and on budget?

Book your place at this conference today – discounts are available for INCOSE members..

Design for Service - making profits not just products


The in-service phase of many systems is the longest and creates the most revenue. Therefore the requirements for and the concept of service needs to be understood by a Systems Engineer – both for the delivery of service, and the conceptual design of the product. Paul Roycroft from Rolls-Royce will discuss the development and application of tools and principles of “Engineering for Service”. Rolls-Royce design and maintain products with a long in-service cycle, and increasingly support those products within a fleet context through long term service agreements. So if you are interested in design for in-service, or the service phase of the product this event will be of interest.

Could the Rail Industry Benefit from a System-Wide Approach to Reliability?


At the request of the Technical Strategy Advisory Group (TSAG), the cross-industry Reliability Steering Group has commissioned a study into Whole System Reliability. Whilst many people are working hard on improving reliability within their „silos‟, does this produce the most reliable system from the user‟s point of view? This study set out to understand how considering reliability across the whole rail system could improve performance and reduce cost. Fortunately, the industry collects statistics on the causes of unreliability across the system – at least so far as delays are concerned – and this information was used to support interviews with the relevant stakeholders for each area.

Systems Engineering Return on Investment


How much Systems Engineering should we do? What is the value of Systems Engineering? These are perennial questions facing the Systems engineering community. Systems engineers generally complain that "not enough Systems Engineering is done", but are unable to articulate the real benefits, or define the right amount. We are delighted to have the opportunity to invite Eric Honour , an INCOSE Founder and past president of INCOSE in 1997, to repeat a presentation from the INCOSE International Symposium held earlier this year in Chicago, on the latest results from work he has been doing looking at the value of Systems Engineering. The work is a statistical analysis of relationship between Systems Engineering activity and the success of programmes. Two key conclusions are made: 1) There is a strong correlation between cost adherence, schedule adherence and (customer) perception of success, with an optimum proportion of SE effort identified; 2) Surprisingly there is a lack of correlation between the level of SE activities and the technical quality of the product system. Eric will present his results, followed by an open (and hopefully lively) discussion about the nature of the analysis, the direction of further work, and the implications of the conclusions. If you have ever tried to justify more SE effort, or wondered how much SE is enough then this event is for you.
