Signaling Control Systems Manager
A new concept for digital train control design and maintenance to be 100% safe.
Signaling Control Systems Managers main challenge is to be able to handle the demand of the future railway. The level of complexity increases dramatically. Capacity must increase, preferably fast and cost efficient, and be delivered with a high service level to meet the demand of the future traveler. Safety will become more challenging to achieve and is of course a top priority and nothing that can be compromised. This will demand a new concept for how digital train control will be designed, developed and maintained. The following scenarios must be managed efficiently:
- Implement new modern railway
- Change and upgrade existing railway
- Efficiently manage problems that occur with existing railway
It is the Signaling Control Systems Manager that need to lead the infrastructure providers in to this new era.
Implement new modern railway
Procuring a new signaling control system is a complex process, typically representing a major investment, and any infrastructure manager needs to ensure that they get the most out of such an investment. The system needs to be compatible with future demands, it needs to be delivered on time and above all – it needs to be 100% safe. Unfortunately, delays in system commissioning are all too common.
Project delays are often caused, directly or indirectly, by inadequate techniques for testing the functionality and verifying the safety. This is especially the case when requirements change during the lifetime of the project. The key to overcome these delays is to be aware of the risks from start, and to have a development process that mitigates them by introducing automated test and safety verification as an integrated part of the process from the very start. This is why more and more infrastructure managers start demanding that their suppliers use formal verification to automatically generate safety evidence with 100% coverage.
Change and upgrade existing railway
Providing evidence of system safety and operational behavior is a challenge not only when commissioning new signaling systems, it often stands for a significant part of the project budget, but also when implementing system upgrades, when the complexity of the existing systems needs to be taken into account.
A new modern concept for digital train control
There is a need for a new process based on formalized requirement specifications and software tools for automating engineering tasks such as coding, testing and verification, that provides reduced cost and minimizes the risks for project delays for the entire life cycle of a signaling system.
