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.
