Getting It Right First Time

Phil Downes of Parsons Brinckerhoff's Rail Division, Europe and Africa, shares his views on using systems engineering to allow consultants to have a broader view of their customers' true requirements. Downes argues that in their search for efficiency, the focus of investment projects should be on ensuring quality up front for rectification and maintenance cost reduction. Downes examines related Parsons Brinckerhoff activities in light of market expansion, cost to value, and delivery. He believes more imagination needs to be exhibited by the industry. An insert describes Parsons Brinckerhoff's support of Metrolink expansion in the Manchester, United Kingdom, area.
