SAFECAP - Automating SSI Data Testing Using Formal Methods


Dominic Taylor, Systra Scott Lister

Alexei Iliasov, University of Newcastle

Thursday, 1st March, London 1700H Doors open, 1730H-1830H Presentation

The increasing complexity of modern railway signalling systems, both in terms of geographic coverage and of functionality, poses a major challenge to verification of compliance with safety requirements. The challenge is exacerbated by the scarcity of skilled resources to undertake verification activities in proportion to the number of projects underway. Automation of design and / or verification of configuration data for signalling systems has been proposed as a means of addressing this challenge.

This presentation presents a practical approach to automated verification that uses computer science formal methods to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of verification activities whilst integrating with existing processes.

Formal methods are mathematical techniques for the specification, design, analysis and verification of software and hardware systems. They have been successfully used in several industrial domains, including transport, defence, telecommunications and nuclear power. Recent advances in formal methods are making it possible to successfully apply them in developing a range of complex applications. Development of computerised railway signalling systems is an area in which formal methods are now becoming widely used.

The meeting will take place in Mott MacDonld's office in 10 Fleet Place, London, EC4M 7RB. There is no charge for attendance and the event is open to non-members but places must be booked in advance. To book, obtain directions or to ask any other questions, please contact RIG Organiser Karl King on k.king@fnc.co.uk or 07403 293935.

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is an international professional society for systems engineers whose mission is to foster the definition, understanding, and practice of world-class systems engineering in industry, academia, and government

The INCOSE UK Rail Interest Group has been formed:

  • To provide a forum for those interested in Systems Engineering in rail to network in a less formal environment, to exchange good practice and to provide mutual support in an area which can require some sustained perseverance;
  • To promote, improve and share the practice of Systems Engineering within the rail industry;
  • To foster connections with other professional bodies within rail and thereby promote cross fertilisation of knowledge and experience across sectors and community disciplines; and
  • To promote awareness of INCOSE UK and encourage membership within the rail industry.

 For further information about the RIG, see www.incoseonline.org.uk and follow the ‘Groups’ link.

Practical Lessons in Writing a System Specification


As soon as a project to deliver a system is born, the team to procure and deliver the system will be assembled. Those key to building the specification are:
1. The eventual users (the customer) of the system in question such as operators and maintainers,
2. The project tasked with delivering the system itself, and
3. A few experienced technical ‘side-cars’ with the knowledge of what other similar operators ask for and what comparable systems can do.
 
After constructing a thorough, systematic contract development process, this team will then set out on the road to building up the most perfect system requirements specification ever written.
 
This highly motivated and enthused team will race into action with much energy but may start to struggle when it becomes clear that each of the three corners of the triangle of expertise has differing points of view and different areas of concern e.g. existing practices, safety, operational flexibility, cost, safeguarding, reliability, innovation or risk control. The apparently perfectly prescribed processes for procuring the obvious solution can become clouded in confusion, disagreements and uncertainty. The momentum may slow, the programme may slip, costs can escalate and, most worryingly, the stakeholder may start to question the project and its ability to deliver.
 
The challenge becomes one of turning the customer’s remit, scope and general concept of operations for the new system into a comprehensive, precise, verifiable and ‘correct’ specification for supply of that system, whilst wading through dozens of new terms, variously-grasped models, strategies, processes and deliverables including high-level principles, plans and concepts.
 
This study aims to use recent experiences in identifying and refining requirements for a system, in the lead-up to and immediately after a contract for supply has been awarded. It is hoped that these will demystify the process of moving from the customer’s aspirations and project goals to clear, specific requirements for the system being procured. These lessons can be used by future projects to chart a path to the specification which gives those overseeing its creation more confidence that the journey will not take longer than expected, cost more than was budgeted for and be a rougher ride than is necessary.
 
The ideas presented here focus on recurring topics observed by the author and the lessons which can be learned from them, so that the case can be made for a more robust process for getting a solution that is fit for purpose, and no more and no less than what is needed by the eventual users.

Scottish Local Group April Meeting


The Scottish local groups next meeting has now been arranged and will be held in Glasgow on the 18th April. There has been some new interest in the group and so likely to be some new faces, all are welcome.

 

The main focus on this meeting will be around how we take the local group forward, focusing on what systems engineering means to each of us.

 

Light refreshments will be available.

 

Please note that due to building restrictions it’s necessary to provide citizenship information in advance of the meeting. Therefore if you have not already done so before please provide this information and your name in an email to paul.wylie@uk.thalesgroup.com.

Plus Ca Change; Developments in Architectural Frameworks in Defence


Architectural Frameworks in Defence are changing. Tom Riley and Paul Handisides will give an overview of the new NATO Architecture Framework v4.0 and discuss its impact of current practice.

Practioners in Defence are being encouraged to move from MODAF to NAF v4.0, which introduces a more coherent organisation of views, an Architecture Development Method, and an alternative notation - Archimate.
