Graham Hjort & Derel Wust - 4Tel Pty Ltd - Interoperability of data for improving the productivity of rail operations

  1. 1. Protecting People. Protecting AssetsProtecting People. Protecting Assets INTEROPERABILITY OF DATA FOR IMPROVING THE PRODUCTIVITY OF RAIL OPERATIONS Derel Wust, Director Graham Hjort, GM Control Systems 28 August, 2014 4Tel Pty Ltd Page - 1
  2. 2. Protecting People. Protecting AssetsProtecting People. Protecting Assets ISSUES FOR REMOTE & REGIONAL LINES Many remote & regional railways have similar operational issues, with: • Vast remote infrastructure & seasonal impacts • Very costly to install and then maintain remote field infrastructure • Theft, vandalism and security almost impossible to manage • Often need interfaces to mainline rail networks • Remote & inhospitable locations with long staff travel times • Expensive to retain skilled staff in remote areas • Limited opportunities to increase revenue to off-set expensive installations; more immediate opportunities to improve bottom-line by reducing CAPEX and OPEX costs 28 August, 2014 4Tel Pty Ltd Page - 2

  17. 17. Protecting People. Protecting AssetsProtecting People. Protecting Assets Is Interoperability Harmonisation? • Harmonisation –The preferred railway systems approach –‘One way’ lowers deployment risks BUT –Creates monopoly rents –Stifles innovation –Limits system integration 28 August, 2014 4Tel Pty Ltd Page - 17
  18. 18. Protecting People. Protecting AssetsProtecting People. Protecting Assets Interoperability is Different • Interoperability –Is demanding on standards & certification BUT –Promotes innovation –Enables system integration –Allows separation of complex system tasks 28 August, 2014 4Tel Pty Ltd Page - 18

Protecting Assets Interoperability in Open Systems • Three core elements are needed to achieve interoperability between systems: – Methodology for network connections – Methodology for describing data – Methodology for achieving security and operational integrity • Interoperability is NOT Harmonisation • Benefits from interoperability are being realised for the Country Regional Network 28 August, 2014 4Tel Pty Ltd Page - 38
  39. 39. Protecting People. Protecting AssetsProtecting People. Protecting Assets • All systems can interoperate • Create competition to reduce monopoly rents • Simplifies individual product replacement • Promote innovation • Improve efficiency and effectiveness • Reduce operating costs 28 August, 2014 4Tel Pty Ltd Page - 39 Interoperability in Open Systems
