System Engineering Workshop - Engineering & Operations Centre of Excellence

The Engineering and Operations Centre of Excellence team held a cross cluster workshop in the UNSW ThinkPod space earlier this year.

This workshop was an opportunity to bring our best and brightest engineers in the space of systems engineering together to collaborate. Roads and Maritime, Sydney Trains, Asset Standards Authority, Sydney Light Rail, Freight Strategy and Planning, Infrastructure and Services, Sydney Metro and Organisational Development were all focused on how we can work together to lift systems engineering capability across the cluster.

Warwick Talbot, General Manager Engineering and System Integrity, opened the workshop and set the scene for robust, informative and enlightening discussions.

“System engineering is scoping of customer needs and getting the required functionality in the early development of the project lifecycle. It’s a holistic view, and provides the means to realising a complex system. It achieves major benefits for Transport and will help to identify and manage the complex nature of the network that we have and all the integrated, cohesive parts. It will reduce project risk, improve the likelihood of success, lower lifecycle costs, and provide positive project outcomes,” he said.

The day was a huge success for everyone involved and enabled participants to share experience and knowledge of systems engineering maturity across the cluster.

It was agreed by all adopting a systems engineering approach supports successful project outcomes across the full asset lifecycle.

“I just wanted to thank you and your team for setting up a really great event that brought TfNSW, Sydney Trains and RMS people together in a great venue,” said Richard Fullalove, Manager, Systems Engineering Process, Asset Standards Authority, Freight, Strategy and Planning.

Further development opportunities will include formal education through our university partnerships as well as mentoring with Transport's own subject matter experts. This will help us to deliver successful transport system solutions that satisfy stakeholder requirements in an iterative problem-solving process, based on the cycle of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
