Transforming the Enterprise Using a Systems Approach


When Systems Engineering might not be the best approach

Presented by Duncan Kemp

Duncan will present work undertaken by a mixed team of academics and practitioners looking at the impact of applying systems approaches in different situations. Based upon the Cynefin framework, Duncan will describe the impact of applying systems engineering to simple, complicated, complex and chaotic situations. He will discuss the results of a 2014 survey of project professionals that looked at their preferred problem solving styles for different situations. Duncan will describe how Systems Engineer’s and Project Manager’s beliefs and organisational cultures are driving them to adopt the wrong approach for the situation they are facing.

Duncan will then describe how successful practitioners are applying a two stage tailoring approach to ensure that their approach is matched to the problem situation. He will describe the critical first step of working out the problem situation and selecting an appropriate response. Duncan will present a functional failure mode of this first stage and illustrate the failures with a range of case studies. Finally Duncan will propose mitigations to reduce the likelihood that organisations will select the wrong approach.

Duncan Kemp has over 25 years' experience as a systems engineer, including roles as Chief Systems Engineer in the UK Ministry of Defence and Department for Transport. Duncan was the lead author of the INCOSE UK Capability Systems Engineering Guide and was one of the authors of the INCOSE Systems Engineering Vision 2025. Duncan is a regular presenter at Systems Engineering conferences, including three best paper awards an INCOSE international conferences. Duncan is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology. He is currently the INCOSE UK Academic Director.

Modelling the future railway: ERTMS and related technologies


Please note the date of this event has now changed from original advertisement due to the proposed Tube driver strike.

Railways around the world have begun to embrace the digital age in order to address the capacity challenge, with 25% predicted passenger increase over the next 10 years on the mainline railways. At the same time there is also a drive to lower the capital and operational cost of the railways, improving asset performance, and assuring its continuing environmental competitiveness.

A range of studies have been delivered on behalf of the Department for Transport, Network Rail and RSSB, which have underpinned the Rail Technical Strategy and Digital Railway future plans by demonstrating the business case for a shift towards digital technologies. Steve Denniss, Technical Director Rail, of WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff will introduce the main principles of integrated railway performance modelling which has supported these studies on projects including:

  • ERTMS Level 3 Risks and Benefits
  • Low cost signalling
  • ETCS Benefits to train operators

There is no charge for attendance and this event is open to non-members but places must be booked in advance.

Please arrive from 1730 for an 1800 start. Basic refreshments will be provided.

Understanding Services: Understanding Stakeholders


Iain Cardow, Project Systems Engineer with Rolls-Royce and active member of the INCOSE National Working Group for Service Systems Engineering, will present an update on the work the group has been undertaking. The Service Systems Working Group was established in 2013 to look at how systems engineering approaches might best be applied in the design and provision of services, covering the full lifecycle, including; specification, contracting, provision, use, maintenance and decommissioning. To date, the group’s focus has been on establishing exactly what services are, and how they differ from other forms of production. The answer to this is more complex and elusive than the group had imagined when they started their journey and this talk will bring to light many of those challenges. Anyone interested in gaining new perspectives on systems and services, systems thinkers and systems engineers, service providers, commissioners, procurement managers, and service managers. As ever, this Bristol Local Group event will provide an open and welcoming forum for the sharing of ideas, knowledge and experiences and all are welcome. The talk itself will last under an hour, following which, there will be ample time for questions and discussion.

INCOSE UK MBSE 2013 survey and recent analysis


The INCOSE UK Chapter MBSE WG performed a survey of its members in spring / summer 2013 of topics relevant to modelling, Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and simulation. Analysis of the majority of the question responses to the first two topics was presented by James Towers Of Object Flow Ltd at INCOSE UK ASEC in Autumn 2013: “MBSE: The State of the Nation”. That analysis focussed on the outcomes from the multi-answer, ‘closed’, questions, and revealed – amongst other things – that MBSE adoption was in early stages of industrial adoption. More recently, two of the open-questions have now been analysed: “In your opinion, what are the 3 main [1: advantages of MBSE; 2: challenges for MBSE]?” This presentation will reprise a subset of the results presented by James, and show the additional outcomes on challenges and suggested objectives for the MBSE WG from the recent analysis. Key outcomes include a focus on business case evidence, and a need for practical guidance, case studies, examples and reduced entry-level cost.

Mobility as a service: Requirements and validation


EVENT IS POSTPONED NEW DATE  TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON

A new paradigm is emerging in transport for intelligent mobility, integrating transport data and customer data to create seamless end-to-end journeys, with transport systems responding dynamically to meet changing demands.

This visit to the Transport Systems Catapult facilities in Milton Keynes will include two sessions exploring how Systems Engineering can respond to the paradigm shift towards mobility-as-a-service.

  • Requirements for mobility-as-a-service – most systems engineering practice in rail draws the system boundary around the railway. This session will explain the fundamentals of the intelligent mobility and its implications for rail as a connected transport mode within a system of systems. 
  • Visualisation for design-based validation – virtual reality, augmented reality and real-time simulation are now becoming accessible to most consumers. This session will include hands-on demonstration of these technologies and explore how we might tailor SE to make best use of visualisation throughout the project lifecycle.

Maintaining Crossrail - a systems approach


Trains will start to run through the new Crossrail tunnels in 2018. The Central section of Crossrail will become one of the most heavily traversed sections of railways in the country.

Customers demand dependable rail services and want to be able to use the railway without downtime for maintenance or failures. Achieving the required availability with the limited access available requires a systems approach and using the latest  reliability centred maintenance techniques.

Dr Martyn Chymera, Maintenance Performance and Reliability Manager for the Crossrail Operations Team, will describe the provisions being made for the remote condition monitoring of Crossrail, including infrastructure monitoring facilities and inspection trains.

The presentation will demonstrate how preventative and pro-active maintenance will be used to keep the railway running without downtime and with almost no failures.
