Ergonomics Society event: A Process and Methods for Cognitive Systems Engineering: Decision Centered Design


This presentation will introduce a process and methods for implementing cognitive systems engineering based on the Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM) approach to understanding cognition at work. This process is called Decision Centered Design (DCD; Ref 1 & 2).

EA, IA, O – Enterprise Architecture in the Rail Domain


Systems Engineering was introduced to manage the complexity risk in large projects to replace, merge, augment and transition major mission critical systems.

The success of SE has allowed more difficult and risky projects to be tackled which in turn has stimulated additional disciplines. This evolutionary cycle promises approaches to more “wicked” problems in “complex adaptive systems” as seen in the non-military evolution of “business capability” involving people, competencies and technical systems.

The presentation will explore the challenges of the expanded problem domain and attempt to position the relationships between the disciplines.

“Systems Engineering Showcase”


The Engineering Doctorate Centre at the University of Bristol invites you to its Knowledge Exchange Suite in Woodlands Road to see a cross section of systems research activities being undertaken by the region’s universities. The session will also explore the issues arising from professional practice that both illuminate the research topics presented and identify new problem areas for investigation. There will also be drinks and light refreshments after the event courtesy of the University of Bristol and it would be helpful if you could email the organiser, Theo Tryfonas, to ensure that the appropriate catering provisions are made paul.warren (@) bristol.ac.uk

System Architecture


Systems architecture is the means of turning a good idea into a viable product, practical system or usable process. So, for technologists, systems architecture provides hope that their brilliant idea won't die because it's been used the wrong way; for semi-academics in the spin-outs, it's a means of ensuring that their investment gives a good prospect of return via sellable, maintainable, reconfigurable products.

The meeting will present different perspectives on systems architecting, drawing on client side systems management and supplier side approaches from different domains and at different scales, and debate the questions “what do open architectures and standards mean for your business, and can you use the wider methods, heuristics and ways of thinking of the system architect?

Invitation to the presentation of a new report and reception The Global Networked Value Circle: A New Model for Manufacturing


The Strategy and International Business Group has recently written a new report in partnership with Capgemini Consulting. A summary is attached.

This event is restricted to a limited number of guests who might benefit from a briefing on the study and the opportunity to meet and consider the implications with other business leaders concerned with these changes. A new study will shortly commence, again in collaboration with Capgemini, that will examine some of the implications of the changing global manufacturing value chain in more detail, and we would welcome your contribution to sharpening its focus.

Towards Visualisations of Configuration Management


One of the principal areas of concern for managing large programmes is the management of risk associated with change. The central issue is one of communication. This presentation proposes better methods of communicating change. An illustration of this is shown using the Victoria Line Upgrade project, where a visualisation of the configuration has improved communication. Areas of success are highlighted and a number of improvement areas identified.

TRIZ - Rapid Innovative Problem Solving - Institution of Mechanical Engineers


IMechE are running a TRIZ Rapid Innovative Problem Solving event on Thursday 18 June 2009 in the Royal Observatory Blackford Hill Edinburgh.

TRIZ is a proven process for solving problems, generating new ideas and developing systems more quickly, cheaply and inventively than traditional methods. The TRIZ thinking tools are a rigorous and systematic approach for understanding and solving any problem; its principal tools enable you to uncover the most effective route to practical solutions, as well as the development of your next generation of products. For more information view the event flyer

INCOSE UK Members are invited to attend the event at the IMeche Member rate.

INCOSE UK Rail Systems Engineering Workshop


After a successful series of evening presentations, the RIG is now organising a day-long workshop to explore in more detail three difficult questions that rail organisations face in increasing their take-up of systems engineering: 1. How should we apply systems engineering principles in the rail environment? 2. How do we find enough rail systems people? 3. How do we write systems engineering into contracts?

ISO/IEC 25010, A Quality Model


INCOSE UK´s London Local Group and The Institution of Engineering and Technology through the Systems Engineering Network have joined forces to reflect on this draft standard of a quality model. “In the new model for software quality in the draft ISO/IEC CD 25010 standard, the concept of quality in use has been broadened to embrace a wider range of issues than was common in usability” (Bevan, 2009)

The Systems Engineering Competency Framework and Guidelines and How They Could be Applied to Rail


The Systems Engineering Competency Framework and Guidelines documents were developed in response to an issue identified by the INCOSE UK Advisory Board (UKAB).whose member organisations wanted a common language with which to describe and discuss the competencies that are required to conduct good systems engineering. The objective was ‘to have a measurable set of competencies for systems engineering which will achieve national recognition and will be useful to the enterprises represented by the UKAB’.

Requirements Capture, Analysis & Specification using UML/SysML


It is often difficult to gain an overall appreciation of the problem definition, or indeed one’s own solution, from routine and often meaningless lists, so Michelle has tried to promote the benefits of using UML and SysML to graphically represent requirements. Until recently, Michelle had only seen these languages used for articulating software specifications or safety requirements....

Tram / Train – A Systems Engineering Challenge


A talk by Giles Thomas

What is tram-train and can the concept bring benefits in the UK? In his talk Giles will explore the tram-train concept that has evolved in continental Europe and look at how the rail industry might benefit from of this emerging technology in the UK. The tram-train concept, that of inter-running vehicles that are designed for use on street tram systems and on the mainline railway, offers a significant opportunity for passenger market development in the UK. The concept, however, brings with it some significant system challenges
