Systems Integration for Delivery: A Network Rail Programme for Change


Systems Integration for Delivery: A Network Rail Programme for Change

 Kevin Gedge, Network Rail

 Wednesday, 2nd October 2019, York
1700H Doors open, 1730H-1830H Event

Delivering integrated railway infrastructure in the environment of increased complexity, coupled with commercial pressures is difficult at the best of times. On top of this, ethical issues, timescales, cost, societal expectations, resources, competencies, business needs, legislation and standards all appear to be conflicting energies unleashed on project teams.

Over the past year, Network Rail has been embarking on a change programme entitled Systems Integration for Delivery (SI4D), this is vital to improving passenger experience and to delivering a reliable, safe, secure, operable, maintainable and performing railway. This change programme embeds Systems Integration capability across the industry to improve the delivery of capital projects including provision of supporting processes, procedures, tools, guides and training. In his presentation Kevin Gedge intends to outline the SI4D framework, its application to projects and how it will impact individuals on projects from sponsors and project managers through to suppliers and third parties.

Kevin Gedge is a Network Rail Principal Engineer and Network Rail Technical Fellow. Kevin works within the discipline of Systems Integration and is both a Chartered Engineer and Certified Systems Engineering Professional. Kevin’s experience spans Defence, aviation and most recently the railway industry; where after working as a systems engineer on the Northern Hub programme, his recent work has been within the engineering headquarters organisation. This has been focused on the development, roll out and application of the Systems Integration for Delivery framework to projects, programmes and portfolios of work for Network Rail.

The meeting will take place at Jacobs, 20 George Hudson Street, York YO1 6WR. Arrive at the lobby and sign in for Jacobs – Photo ID will be required

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, Mike Morua on m.morua@fnc.co.uk or 07763455171. Please let me know of any special requirements.

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:

EMEA Rail Integration Workshop - Challenges for System Integration in Rail Chaired by Mike Morua and Jan Verbeek


This year at the INCOSE EMEA workshop in Utrecht there will be a workshop session titled: Challenges for System Integration in Rail. The session will be chaired by myself, Mike Morua from Frazer-Nash. and Jan Verbeek from ADSE.
 
The Rail Integration workshop session will address problem areas within current and planned rail and urban/suburban transit schemes which will include:
 - Systems integration across the whole to include other transport networks and operating environment and their standards;
 - Changes to Environmental policies, CO2 reduction standards and population growth patterns;
 - Differences between "Green" and "Brown" sites;  - Increased digitalisation of rail operations, maintenance and passenger lifestyles;
 - Need to develop simulations and digital twins as part of the programme that are based on BIMS and other data architectures;
 - Need to work together despite large stakeholder groups and working over large distances.
 - Other areas that might come to mind.
 
The workshop session will also address a variety of integration issues and attempt to identify a Generic System Integration Framework that can be applied to these projects.  The Framework will consist of architecture, governance, migration strategies and processes that allow effective and reduced risk management of these complex projects.
 
We will focus on the Dutch Railway and mass transit capability however, our principles and summaries will be applied in a more general environment that will have ramifications for mass transit in the UK and other global locations.
 
The workshop session is not a RIG event and this notification is not an invitation to take part. Instead, I am writing to make you aware of this session and to provide you with an opportunity to send me your comments or observations that you would like us to address at the workshop. Please send any comments to m.morua@fnc.co.uk . 
 
I propose to make a presentation to the INCOSE RIG at a date to be determined in London later in October.  I will highlight  outcomes of the Rail Integration Workshop session. An email invitation will be sent when the date of that presentation is set.

Engineering Connected Systems


Description:

 The world of systems and projects is joining up at such a pace that there is now a danger of practice running ahead of established theory. This problem is already evident in the field of Systems of Systems (SoS), where definitions have become problematic, and the distinction between systems and SoS increasingly hard to sustain.

 This talk will illustrate the problem with reference to examples drawn from real-world systems, and put forward a new synthesis which places interdependence at the centre, rather than other more usual factors such as independence. What emerges is a more integrated treatment, in which product families, componentisation, supply chains and operationally connected systems form part of a broad continuum, sharing a number of common features, with differences caused by such factors as point of integration, scale and intentionality. There will be some discussion of architectural issues, enterprise collaboration and emerging life cycles. The talk will conclude with some speculation about the boundaries for traditional systems engineering and what might lie beyond.

 Peter Brook Biography

 Peter has worked for over 40 years in the world of large-scale distributed systems, mainly in defence and security. He was Director of Systems Engineering for the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) in the late 1990s before being seconded to MOD to establish and run the Integration Authority, responsible for ensuring joined-up operation in a networked environment. Since then he has consulted widely across Government. In 2015-16, he undertook a series of NATO lectures on Systems of Systems, alongside Dr Judith Dahmann and Prof Mike Henshaw, focusing on Architecture and Enterprise issues.

 He is also a long-standing member of INCOSE having served on the Board of Directors between 1996-2000. He has been visiting professor at the Defence Academy, is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and an INCOSE Fellow.

1700H Doors open, 1730H-1830H Event

With an increased adoption of digital information technology in our modern railways, and the requirement for greater interconnected systems driven to improve operational performance, reliability and customer journey satisfaction, the cyber security threat landscape is dramatically increased which risk the availability and safety of modern railway systems. Matt Simpson and Darren Hepburn will explore what can be done to counter the increased security risk by the adoption of a risk management framework proven within Network Rail.  

Matt Simpson is the Professional Head of Cyber Security and a Technical Director at Atkins. Darren Hepburn is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Network Rail. Together they will present an overview on the current application of Security Assurance Frameworks, built on proven security, systems and safety engineering standards that are being used to secure complex operational railway systems and future digital signalling technologies. They will subsequently facilitate a discussion on the current and future development of the area, and the challenges it faces.

Matt Simpson is a Chartered Systems Engineer and the Professional Head of Cyber Security for Atkins Global. Matt’s area of expertise and experience includes industrial cyber security, transport security, security cases within safety system assurance, secure SCADA architecture and the Internet of Things. Matt has designed and implemented cyber security programmes and he managed the delivery of complex security solutions for global engineering organisations, the defence sector and UK critical national infrastructure providers including Transport for London and Network Rail.

Darren Hepburn is an experienced Cyber Security Professional who has led senior Information Security and Architect teams in a range of domains before taking up the role of Network Rail Telecoms CISO in 2012. Since then, Darren’s remit has grown to include the security of not only the Telecoms systems but Power SCADA and Signalling, Command and Control Systems that are critical to safe and reliable UK rail operations.  Darren represents the Network Rail security team at several UK and European groups where he actively advocates for embedding cyber security into railway systems and processes to ensure cyber resilient operations.

The meeting will take place at Nova North, 11 Bressenden Place, Westminster, London SW1E 5BY (Arrive at the lobby and identify yourself at the security. Someone from SNC-Lavalin/Atkins will escort you

Solving the Resilience Problem in Digital Railway


 

Designing safety critical systems like signalling and train control is arguably the most important job on the modern railway. While physical infrastructure and rolling stock continue to rely on tried-and-tested designs, signalling is undergoing a transformation with the introduction of the Digital Railway.

 

Our networks are increasingly congested, with more and varied traffic types. As we move toward a dynamically controlled model within this complex ecology, our ability to manage complexity and to assure the systems to the same level of safety integrity must evolve with the technology.

 

To achieve this, we need to facilitate a new management approach that incorporates a more targeted level of risk modelling. By progressively assessing system design – using data collected across the system lifecycle – we can continually refine a design and test its resilience, making enhancements as well as corrections where standards are deficient or non-existent. In doing so, we put system risk engineering back in the hands of the signalling engineers.
