AGM


The RIG is taking a Summer break but we are putting together a series of events for September to December inclusive. We'll be in touch again with further details but please find attached a flyer for our next event on 22nd September - a date for you to put in your diaries. Sylvia Churba's talk will be preceded by our AGM. This will be short and we don't twist anybody's arm to join the committee so it are perfectly safe and it does provide an opportunity to influence the way the RIG. We hope that you can come along a few minutes early and join us for the AGM.

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.

Could the Rail Industry Benefit from a System-Wide Approach to Reliability?


At the request of the Technical Strategy Advisory Group (TSAG), the cross-industry Reliability Steering Group has commissioned a study into Whole System Reliability. Whilst many people are working hard on improving reliability within their „silos‟, does this produce the most reliable system from the user‟s point of view? This study set out to understand how considering reliability across the whole rail system could improve performance and reduce cost. Fortunately, the industry collects statistics on the causes of unreliability across the system – at least so far as delays are concerned – and this information was used to support interviews with the relevant stakeholders for each area.

Design for Service - making profits not just products


The in-service phase of many systems is the longest and creates the most revenue. Therefore the requirements for and the concept of service needs to be understood by a Systems Engineer – both for the delivery of service, and the conceptual design of the product. Paul Roycroft from Rolls-Royce will discuss the development and application of tools and principles of “Engineering for Service”. Rolls-Royce design and maintain products with a long in-service cycle, and increasingly support those products within a fleet context through long term service agreements. So if you are interested in design for in-service, or the service phase of the product this event will be of interest.

Delivering the Right Transport System: Systems Engineering and Project Management in Harmony

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been cancelled


The INCOSE UK Rail Interest Group (RIG) is proud to be working with the IET to put on a one-day seminar at the IET's premises in Savoy Place, London on Tuesday 7 December 2010.

Is transport driving – or driven by – the economy?

In order to have a direct impact on steering the economy out of recession, the industry needs to have the right overall objectives AND intelligently combine cost, carbon, customer and capacity in a way that drives the right behaviours from ‘users’.

Of course, the industry faces a very real risk of becoming a victim of the prevailing economic conditions and the urge to cut, rather than invest intelligently.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology are pleased to present this one day seminar, in conjunction with representatives from the International Council on Systems Engineering’s (INCOSE) Rail Interest Group.

Join us at the headquarters of the IET for a seminar that will break down the typical project lifecycle, exploring good practice in “delivering the right transport system” and how this has been practically achieved with Systems Engineering and Project Management working in harmony.

  • How do Governments and Stakeholders get the Transport System they want?
  • How do we ensure that the financial crisis does not dwarf the ticking time bomb of Global Warming?
  • Can we realistically put Carbon at the heart of our commercial decisions?
  • How have successful transport projects blended Systems Engineering and Project Management to deliver what was required – on time and on budget?

Book your place at this conference today – discounts are available for INCOSE members..

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 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.

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.

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.'

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’.
