Off-The-Shelf (OTS): Making it work for the MOD


Commercial OTS, Military OTS or just plain OTS, and the desire to use as much ‘standard’ readily available kit is an attractive option in these times of heightened financial pressures. Going ‘off the shelf’ is surely a way to reduce costs? Of course, there are pros and cons to the use of any solution and OTS will undoubtedly offer both advantages and disadvantages. It is important therefore to establish as much background to the impact of OTS to ensure it delivers effective solutions and that decision makers' eyes are opened to the micro, macro, short term and long term impacts.

OTS is too important a subject to be the object of superficial examination. This industry workshop and consultation will draw on the knowledge that exists in the marketplace and attempt to identify clear tasks and responsibilities to provide constructive debate and decision making on the future use of OTS.

The workshop is being organised and facilitated by Niteworks, the MOD-Industry partnership, and sponsored by Dr Chris Mace, Director Defence Support Review at the

Decision Making from Data: Causes and Uncertainty


This talk describes a case study in the use of data and probabilistic modelling for decision making and the wider applications of the principles to other problems in Systems Engineering.

The case study, an on-going collaboration between Queen Mary University of London and RSSB, concerns the safety of rail passengers using stations. RSSB co-ordinates the Rail Industry's collection of passenger incident data and this data is used to track the risk of different categories of accidents. However, rather than 'what is the current risk?' what if we want to know 'How can the risk be reduced?'. For this, we need to model causally: how far would the risk be reduced by feasible safety improvements. We show that incident data alone is not sufficient for this: we need to integrate other sources of data and use probabilistic modelling to approximate complex relationships.

Complexity Science - by Dr Jason Noble


Complexity science looks at systems with many parts that interact to produce global behaviour that cannot easily be explained in terms of the behaviours of individual components but only as a result of their interactions. Complex systems include IT networks, ecosystems, brains, markets, cities and businesses. Recent developments in complexity research have brought together ideas from the study of complex adaptive systems, systems biology, physics, environmental sciences, engineering, and information technology to create exciting new research directions and innovative cross-disciplinary activities.

The push from industry to solve complexity challenges has produced a massive response from the UK research funding councils and the academic community. The University of Southampton's Institute for Complex Systems Simulation (ICSS) was launched in 2009 and is jointly funded by EPSRC (£6 million) and the University of Southampton and its partners (£6 million). The Institute brings together world-class simulation modelling research activities from across the University of Southampton and hosts Southampton's Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) in Complex Systems Simulation.

Dr Jason Noble is a research fellow at the University of Southampton and works in the Agents, Interaction and Complexity group. He has a D.Phil. in Cognitive and Computing Sciences from the University of Sussex and a B.A. in Psychology, from Macquarie University, Sydney. His career has included positions at the Max Planck Institute in Berlin and at the University of Leeds.

The talk will review the status of complexity science as an academic discipline, introduce the ICSS and describe the skill set we are imparting to our PhD students, and present a few examples of interdisciplinary complex systems research at Southampton.

Understanding the Enterprise - how architectural principles help


A lot of effort has been put into developing ways and means of describing the architecture of systems, systems of systems, and enterprises, each of which has come from a different context, usually with a subtly different approach. This event will provide an overview of some of the more common approaches, and seek to understand the extent to which the various methods are interchangeable and interdependent as you move up and down from subsystems to enterprises and back again.

A Duffer's Guide to TRAK


You may be heartily sick of hearing people bang on about systems architecture. Why should the RIG be any different...

TRAK's mission is to make doing systems architecting simple. Even I can do it!

In this 30 minute, fun-filled session Colin Wood, co-creator of TRAK (he doesn’t speak highly of the other one), will explain how the least amongst us can quickly get up to speed and produce some quite natty models that the MD will fall over backwards for, at least if he's in a good mood. Bring him along if you can.

Systems Engineering Meeting to review the capability of Small and Medium sized Enterprises to utilise System Engineering


Many larger businesses utilise Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SME's) to carry out work on their own products or services either internally or for development on behalf of clients. Many SME’s, be they external contractors or specialist teams within an organisation, provide essential and high value services which compliment the range of activities that larger organisations can offer within an integrated Systems Engineering approach.

This apparent integration belies the fact that the SME's are asked to operate under the burden of a System Engineering process created for the larger enterprise. The reality may be that a more tailored approach by the larger organisation could help them to better utilise high value SME input; or that SME's could define a “Systems Engineering Light” model, better defining the aspects of Systems Engineering relevant to their project roles..........

How can systems engineers and asset managers work together better?


Traditionally, Systems Engineering (SE) and Asset Management (AM) have been separate disciplines: SE has focussed on building optimal systems while AM has focussed on delivering business objectives throughout the asset lifecycle.

The aim of the workshop is to help practitioners of the two disciplines work together better. At the end of this workshop, participants will have developed a shared understanding of:

  • The overlaps between SE and AM
  • How the two disciplines (processes, standards and tools) relate to each other
  • How SE supports AM throughout the asset’s lifecycle

The workshop is also an opportunity for participants to network and broaden their horizons.

The workshop will start with scene-setting presentations and participants will then work together to identify opportunities for SE and AM practitioners to work together better and to formulate actions to exploit these opportunities.

Death, Taxes and a Political Dimension


A personal review of the increasing role being played by a political input in the award and implementation of major engineering projects over the last decades, with particular reference to the defence arena. The presentation represents an attempt to identify the techniques used by mainly government procurement agencies to achieve the political imper-atives they are instructed to meet, whilst placing the totality of the risk on the contractor.

The talk is illustrated by examples from the past 30 plus years of experience working on several large HMG projects....
