Management of complexity for efficient traffic management

Reference number
Funding from Vinnova SEK 473 500
Project duration April 2018 - December 2018
Status Completed
Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation

Purpose and goal

The project has been initiated to develop a management system for managing complex projects as well as a framework for the railway industry which proposes how the work can be set up with appropriate roles and responsibilities for each actor. It gives the customer comfort, simplicity and clarity, resulting in lower costs over time for the plant. Suppliers get greater similarity between customers and less adaptive work when introducing a signalling system.

Expected results and effects

The project will: - Provide the right conditions for clients to lead, control and develop signalling systems with high quality and increased traffic capacity. - Control the development of signalling systems from today´s complex systems to less complicated systems, with increasing understanding and contribution to standardisation of parts and interfaces. - Create a forum and dialogue about needs, challenges and innovative solutions in the industry. - Visualize efficient, purposeful and future-proof signalling systems at a predictable cost over the entire life of the system.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is run as an open innovation project, where participants contribute with their knowledge and skills. Project participants have different backgrounds and perspectives that reinforce the understanding of challenges and documented in essays. In Step 1, the project has categorized challenges, identified solutions, created interactions between actors and defined subprojects for Stage 2/3. During the fall, a dialogue has been created with the industry in larger forums with presentation for 170 people at the Railway Day and at several smaller seminars.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
