Challenge

The client wanted to improve their insight into the complex behaviour of the railway system, using systems modelling to inform decision making.

Their challenge was to grow capacity whilst enhancing performance.

Approach

Articles Analysed

28
Experts Interviewed

Regular discussions with the client team, to identify key elements required from systems modelling.

The SI team undertook extensive desk based research including patent landscaping and interviewing of leading global industry experts and thought leaders in systems modelling.

Outcome

A landscape of “the art of the possible” in current modelling. The SI team summarised findings into a set of recommendations to inform internal solution directions in order to improve current systems modelling.

The project resulted in new insights and industry links and initiated new modelling implementations, allowing the client to use systems modelling to simulate more ideal infrastructure scenarios.
