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.

Systems Engineering Management


Over many years, experience has shown that projects have difficulty in delivering solutions to stakeholders on time, on budget and satisfying needs. The greater the problem complexity, solution complexity, problem novelty, solution novelty and diversity of stakeholders, the greater the challenge has proven to be.This 5-day course provides in-depth coverage of how to manage engineering projects to maximise project success,within the project’s given constraints. The course establishes principles and provides methods for successfully managing projects, and getting the best out of people, individually and in teams.

Annual Systems Engineering Conference 2015 (ASEC2015) - 'Systems Engineering comes of age'


Last year was the 20th anniversary of the formation of INCOSE UK. This year, we are celebrating the “coming of age” of Systems Engineering in the UK, looking at contemporary art and practice, putting the discipline on a professional footing, and exploring how Systems Engineering can both apply in new areas, and learn from them in the process. For more information and to book visit the ASEC site - asec2015.org.uk .

Sepsis and Systems Thinking: Systems Approaches to Complex Medical and Healthcare Problems


 

  • Gary Smith, INCOSE UK ESEP and INCOSE Healthcare Ambassador will present work he’s undertaken in collaboration with Brigitte Daniel Allegro of INCOSE France.
  • Each year in the UK, it is estimated that more than 100,000 people are admitted to hospital with sepsis and around 37,000 people will die as a result of the condition.
  • It is a highly complex condition and spans many systems - biological, healthcare, medical technologies, as well as social and economic systems.
  • This free event is open to all, and in particular to anyone interested in solving complex problems, systems engineers, healthcare practitioners and commissioners.
  • There will be an opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and meet like minded professionals.

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.

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.

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.
