Nuclear Power - how can a systems approach help?


This event will explore the interface between civil nuclear power & system engineering in an “Any Questions?” style format with a panel of three speakers representing some of the different perspectives on system engineering and nuclear power, with panellists expected from the Office of the Nuclear Regulator, EDF Energy and the SE research community (in the shape of Paul Davies, visiting professor to Loughborough University, Head of Innovation at Thales, and past INCOSE UK President). In order to make this event format effective, we are keen to solicit questions from the audience in advance. Suggested questions should be sent by email to Colin Brain at cjb@sevalidation.com before the 9th May to allow the panellists the opportunity to prepare their responses. Such questions could be along the lines of “Are the major system risks and assumptions different for nuclear power?”, or “What is 'Plan B' if there are too few engineers to support future nuclear aspirations?”

Systems Engineering: Railway Operators get it too!


Systems Engineering techniques are increasingly applied with success in rail engineering design. Rail operating professionals, seeing the advantages, have grasped the essentials with alacrity.

Nigel Murphy and Steve Roberts set out some examples of such applications, illustrating how time, cost and risk have been reduced and performance and operability improved, in ‘softer’ operational design of the rules, methods of working and competence management systems necessary to deliver the railway for customers. They will draw upon examples over the last 12 years in the UK, and reference global examples for further illustration. They will argue that SE practitioners should view railway operations professionals as advocates, champions and co-practitioners and that System Engineering must embrace operational design in a systematic way rather than as an afterthought. The presentation will show that use of SE approaches by operators is a successful model for others to adopt and provoke debate on practical steps that SE practitioners should consider when developing new projects.

Managing Complexity in the North West and Integrating the Northern Hub


The Northern Hub Programme comprises a collection of infrastructure projects which come together to increase the capability of the railway system in the north-west of England. The purpose of the Northern Hub is to provide the network capability for train service enhancements necessary to facilitate economic growth across the north of England. The Northern Hub Programme is set against a backdrop of significant rail investment in the North, including major electrification programmes, significant re-signalling and re-control works and journey time improvement schemes.

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.

Crossrail: making the right decisions, picking the right technologies


Crossrail will run from Maidenhead and Heathrow, through 21 kilometres of new twin-bore tunnels under central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. It will bring an additional 1.5 million people within 45 minutes commuting distance of London's key business districts. When Crossrail opens it will increase London's rail-based transport network capacity by 10%, supporting regeneration across the capital, helping to secure London's position as a world leading financial centre, and cutting journey times across the city.

Organisation and Behaviours - Systems Engineering within the wider enterprise


This event will feature Richard Beasley and will be based upon the relevant sections on SE and organisations from the public review version of the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) which can be found at www.sebokwiki.org, and has been developed as part of the BKCASE (Body of Knowledge and Curriculum to Advance Systems Engineering) project. Attendees will be invited to discuss and review the material so far, with the intention of feeding pertinent observations back into the public review process, acting as a sanity check from real-life practitioners.

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.
