Managing Integration in Software Intensive Programs

Start time: 12.00pm AEDT. Join us for a deep dive into systems integration in software-intensive transport (railway/roads) projects - the journey from tender through to operations, focusing on Train and Road Control and Diagnostic Systems.
Managing Integration in Software Intensive Programs

Systems integration in software-intensive transport (railway/roads) projects – the journey from tender through to operations, focusing on Train and Road Control and Diagnostic Systems. 

The presentation will discuss key steps of the project lifecycle including:

  • Operators preparing for IoT 4.0 and the integration of the cloud;
  • The challenges of integrating the brownfield and greenfield;
  • The challenges of managing a variety of systems and the pursuit of consolidation;
  • The use of multi input diagnostics;
  • The use of Commercial-off-the-Shelf equipment and the risks and additional management associated with its use (including upfront costs, chances for savings later in the lifecycle especially if using COTS)
  • Maintenance considerations (training, level 3 support, etc); and
  • Training – being proactive

Key takeaways from the presentation include: 

  • Compleity is not purely technical, and everyone involved plays a role 
  • Avoiding complexity can be as a careful consideration on integration
  • Software integration is complex and has characteristics which require considerations
