Systems Engineering Approach to Transit Systems

The paper explores the interrelation of System Engineering practice with the development of modern CBTC systems. CBTC systems pose two challenges: 1. how to best engineer system integrating signaling and telecommunication products, drawing lessons on Systems Engineering practice from other domains: 2. how to deal with customer demands for Interoperability with use of common specifications at the interfaces between the safety critical and telecommunications products. The paper draws on the return of experience from the commissioning and operation of radio-based train control systems in Heavy Transit applications. The CBTC and radio systems experience is then contrasted with the experience of System Engineering on other projects.
