Nimrod and the MoD: missed opportunities and lessons for rail - Nigel Murphy, Followed by Local Group Meeting
6:00 PM Nigel Murphy, Technical Director of Atkins Systems Consultancy, will be relating the findings from a review conducted for the Dept. for Transport, which examined transferable lessons from experience in the defence sector, including the recent Nimrod inquiry, of the management of safety and integrity for the delivery of major complex programmes in the rail sector. Increasingly aged legacy systems, together with current economic circumstances pose significant challenges for systems engineers in the rail sector. The Atkins review team 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 thought provoking insight into how we might learn from failure and the sacrifice of others. 6:45 PM Refreshments, Cheese and Wine will be served 7:15 PM Local Group Meeting There will be a short meeting of INCOSE members and prospective members to determine enthusiasm for establishing a programme of activities and re-establishing an active INCOSE local group in the Midlands. The discussion will be led by Professor Michael Henshaw, Academic Director for INCOSE UK.
