Purpose and goal
The aim of the project was to identify the needs of problem owners and other stakeholders, and to lay the foundations for a continuing project with identified opportunities and consortium of stakeholders. A requirement profile is defined together with a surface that allows for degradation of the complexity of the project and a group of players with strong motivation to continue the development of work processes for innovation procurement of complex systems such as signaling. Key issues for the continued development are defined.
Results and expected effects
The project has verified that the complexity lies in the product system of systems building and the dependency between the operators in procurement. A process model has been defined which includes activity for development of complex systems for procurement. A requirement profile has been defined and gaps in knowledge identified. The basis for continued development is through the models, needs analysis and collective actors. Effects of this study is that in the long term create a more functional procurement of innovative complex systems and a lower cost from a LCC perspective.
Approach and implementation
The project was implemented in close cooperation with the partners in the project, ie AB SL / Traffic Management, KTH, MTO Safety AB, and VTI. The physical project meetings conducted in conjunction with telephone meetings gave a valuable continuity in project work. A major workshop was held where some 20 highly involved players from several different disciplines participated. Feedback and comments from the WS gave input to the project together with previous studies in this area and a more general theory study on effective and innovative leadership of development.
