The Business Case for Interlocking Design Automation
How to build the business case for an investment in a new process for Interlocking Design Automation
This document aims to help infrastructure- vendors and managers developing rail control systems to create a compelling business case for investing in a modern Interlocking Design Automation process. A state of the art process based on formalized specifications and automation tools compared to traditional methods for developing signaling applications.
To be able to present a business case we compare traditional methods for developing signalling applications with a state of the art process based on formalized specifications and automation tools.
Experience shows that using a modern Interlocking Design Automation process you will significantly:
- Reduce time to market
- Reduce life cycle costs to half
- Greatly simplify the safety assessment process.
