Viewing of the Crawford Collection:


The Crawford Collection of books and manuscripts at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, one of the most extensive and valuable astronomical libraries in the world, was the gift of James Ludovic Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford (formerly Lord Lindsay) in 1888. Lindsay was a distinguished amateur astronomer who set up a private observatory on the family’s country estate at Dun Echt, Aberdeenshire, in the north of Scotland, in 1872. He appointed David Gill (later Sir David, Her Majesty’s Astronomer at the Royal Observatory at the Cape of Good Hope) as Director, with whose help he furnished it with a set of astronomical instruments from the best opticians in Europe. Inspired by his father, the 25th Earl of Crawford, a leading bibliophile and book collector, Lord Lindsay also assembled at Dun Echt a magnificent library of astronomical books and manuscripts.

Only 10 places are available.

Risk: Framing for Consistency


The topic of risk is much discussed and understood by all, or at least, we all talk about it every day and all have our own personal understanding, but what of the world of business? Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is now a well established paradigm for business, but does it go far enough? This forum is an opportunity for practioners, managers, and academics to discuss a framework that goes beyond today’s ‘probability * impact = risk’ mentality, and basic three-point estimating, in order to extend the power and flexibility of ERM through simulation modelling. Following on from this session, it is intended that the collected (yet anonymous) views of the group will inform a journal publication assessing the merits of the proposed framework notionally known as ‘Risked Value Analysis’.

A System for people


System engineer’s formula for avoiding crippling mistakes and delivering success: in relationships at work and elsewhere.

Speaker: David Fraser

Talk Abstract:
Suppose there is a formula for relating to people: What would it look like? So much depends on our ability to get on with other people. With the right approach, developing the skills we use in all our relationships is an easy route to success and one of the few reliable and enduring ways we can improve our lives. Drawing on practical psychology, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and experience of family life, social situations and the workplace at all levels, David Fraser has taken a system engineer’s perspective to offer a systematic, practical and intelligent approach to achieving success with other people in complex organisational situations, and also at home and elsewhere.

The tools are out there to illuminate our dealings with other people. We just need to pick them up and use them. This event is for anyone who wants to improve their relationships and to have the confidence that comes from knowing they have the skills they need. Why go about in the dark when you can switch on the lights?

Typical feedback:
'An excellent opportunity to develop interpersonal skills at a very high level.'
'Illuminating, worthwhile and incredibly useful. We quickly found the tools to be genuinely powerful – in fact their value in assisting relationships became impossible to ignore.'
'A very talented and engaging speaker.'

Speaker's biography can be found at: www.relationshipsmadeeasy.info/author.html/

2nd Railway Systems Engineering Workshop ‘Railway Systems Engineering in a Tough Economic Climate’


As funding for large-scale projects becomes tighter, there is a danger that the effort spent of systems engineering activities will be reduced. Systems engineers know that better systems engineering is needed if rail projects are to deliver more for less. This year’s INCOSE RIG one-day workshop will share experiences and best practice in the application of systems engineering to rail projects, with particular emphasis on the benefits of systems engineering during tough economic times.

The workshop is a forum for networking and exchanging knowledge and latest developments in the area of railway systems engineering. The workshop will include invited addresses from senior policy makers and technical experts.

Systems Engineering and Academia, What next?


This workshop event will discuss how Systems Engineering and academia interact. The idea is to get a feel for how much academic interest is out there in the UK, what issues are important and whether there is enough interest to warrant an INCOSE working group to take some of the themes forward. The session will be split into 2 sessions looking at research and education/training and then we will have a short wash-up session to discuss the next steps. Please come along and participate.

Safer, More Secure and Easier To Use


In the modern world there seems to be a goal to make things safer, more secure, and easier to use. You can (and probably will) argue that safety can be taken to straightjacket proportions, having more passwords does not make for more security, and that usability does not mean making every electronic interface look like an iPod – in which case you’ll be more than welcome to attend this event! The plan for the evening is to investigate the interaction between systems engineering and the safety, security and human factors domains to better understand what they can (or at least should) do for each other, and where there are underlying tensions.

Systems Engineering Return on Investment


How much Systems Engineering should we do? What is the value of Systems Engineering? These are perennial questions facing the Systems engineering community. Systems engineers generally complain that "not enough Systems Engineering is done", but are unable to articulate the real benefits, or define the right amount. We are delighted to have the opportunity to invite Eric Honour , an INCOSE Founder and past president of INCOSE in 1997, to repeat a presentation from the INCOSE International Symposium held earlier this year in Chicago, on the latest results from work he has been doing looking at the value of Systems Engineering. The work is a statistical analysis of relationship between Systems Engineering activity and the success of programmes. Two key conclusions are made: 1) There is a strong correlation between cost adherence, schedule adherence and (customer) perception of success, with an optimum proportion of SE effort identified; 2) Surprisingly there is a lack of correlation between the level of SE activities and the technical quality of the product system. Eric will present his results, followed by an open (and hopefully lively) discussion about the nature of the analysis, the direction of further work, and the implications of the conclusions. If you have ever tried to justify more SE effort, or wondered how much SE is enough then this event is for you.

Nimrod and the MoD: missed opportunities and lessons for rail


Nigel Murphy, Technical Director of Atkins Rail Systems Consultancy, will be relating the findings from a recent review conducted for the DfT. This examined transferable lessons from experience in the defence sector, including the recent Nimrod inquiry, for the management of safety and integrity and for the delivery of major complex programmes in rail. The current economic background poses challenges for the rail sector and these have implications for the effective delivery of rail's investment portfolio. Furthermore, increasingly aged legacy systems in rail generate real challenges for the systems engineer. Atkins' team on this review comprised a cross section of defence, rail and systems specialists as well as transport economics and planning professionals. It promises to be a stimulating and indeed thoughprovoking insight into how we might learn from failure and the sacrifice of others.

Simple Systems Techniques That Work


Back in the days before we all had computers on our desks, and fancy modelling and analysis tools to use on them, we used to get an awful lot done with a pen and some bits of paper. Some of these simple techniques can produce surprisingly powerful results when applied correctly, and it is the aim of this interactive one-day event to give delegates the opportunity to try some of them out. Every delegate will receive expert tuition and a walk-through of each method, before trying them out on our sample problem...

• Reintegrating the Elephant: Using Microsoft Office to automate management of requirements


Click here to register via Eventbrite

In his presentation “Eating the Elephant: ETCS Requirements for GB railway” John Alexander of Network Rail described the Reference Design process that was implemented to elicit the GB specific requirements for the configuration of the ETCS product.  This involved the production of some 31 documents to describe various aspects of operation on the GB railway and the ETCS capabilities to be applied to those.  From these 31 documents 5 requirement sets were consolidated.

This presentation follows on from John’s and describes a number of toolsets developed by WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff to support and automate the processes for consolidation and documentation of the Reference Design itself and subsequent requirement specifications.

Royal Aeronautical Society's Weapon System Integrity vs Interoperability Conference


There is a common perception that a conflict exists between weapon system integrity and interoperability. Is this true or are there opportunities for ensuring that surety and risks can be balanced to achieve interoperability? Areas where this is a major issue include ISTAR, Directed Energy Weapons, and Spacebased Systems.

In order to address this question, a one-day unclassified conference is being organised by the Royal Aeronautical Society's Weapon Systems and Technology Group in conjunction with QinetiQ at Boscombe Down. Papers are invited to discuss the issues associated with balancing these apparently divergent requirements.

Abstracts of 200 - 500 words typed and double spaced on A4 paper should be submitted by Friday 3rd July 2009.
