  1. 1. Crop option 1 Crop option 2 IBM Engineering Portfolio ….with a Focus on Transport Clients
  2. 2. 3 Agenda • Introduction • The V Model and IBM Engineering Portfolio • Customer Reference: Rail Projects Victoria • Other Cases (e.g. Transport NSW, High Speed Rail, …) • IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next Gen • IBM Engineering Requirements Quality Assistant • Next Steps
  3. 3. 4 Why is Requirements Management Important • How the Client (e.g. RPV) sees a requirement is often very different to how the Sub Contractors will see the same requirement. • Do they use Word / PDF and Excel to transfer requirements to Sub Contractors • What is really needed? Can you be confident the end user explained it in simple words? • What language and tools are used to describe a requirement? ⁃ E.g. MUST, SHOULD, COULD? • What reports are needed to stay on track
  4. 4. 5 Requirements are the starting point to everything q Project scoping q Cost estimation q Scheduling q Developing q Testing q Release and Production Management Mind the Gap: New French Trains Too Wide for Many Platforms PARIS—France's state-run railway system on Wednesday admitted failing to mind the gap, after realizing that a fleet of new trains it has ordered are too wide to fit many of the country's stations. It will cost about €50 million ($68.5 million) to alter the platforms to fit the new trains by 2016, when they are delivered, SNCF and RFF said. SOURCE:Wall Street Journal World, May 21, 2014
  5. 5. 6 We have seen all of this before, what is changing now? Best in breed combined with a solution approach
  6. 6. 7 Typical Project Lifecyle – Systems Engineering V Model Representation Conventional methods of data collection and dissemination make ”Verification & Validation” • extremely time & resource consuming, • error prone • & primary source of disconnects and delays “In the railway industry traceability is very important as a way to demonstrate the quality of design and safety of the product. [..] for Alstom Transport”.” State Rail Contractors

  23. 23. 26 Transport for New South Wales
  24. 24. 27 Transport for New South Wales • Transport NSW was looking for the right solution to manage the integration of the Digital Systems Program on the Sydney Trains Network. The right solution would have to comply with several requirements, ranging from supporting a collaborative approach to System Engineering, offering the possibility to engage different companies on the same cloud instance, and being accessible from anywhere in the world. Also, they were looking for a user friendly solution. • The Digital Systems Program consists of three main elements: • Replacing trackside signalling equipment with the latest ETCS Level 2 technology; • Implementing Automatic Train Operation (ATO), which will be used to assist drivers –who will still remain in control –and provide faster and more consistent journey times; and • Introducing a Traffic Management System (TMS) for more effective incident management and service regulation across the network.

  31. 31. 34 Key requirements for a Requirements Management system Attributes to support and control process • Requirements documents alone are not enough • Documents may not be enough but spreadsheets lose clarity over a specification and consistency with the original request • Requirements documents need to be ‘annotated’ with additional information ⁃ and displayed as a traditional document – Make use of intelligent ‘workflow’ attributes to follow a requirement through it’s life • (creation, realization, retirement)
  32. 32. 11/19/19 IBM Engineering Requirements Quality Assistant RQA
  33. 33. 41 Key requirements for a Requirements Management system Cognitive requirements and tools • Engineering data is getting huge • Requirements alone are being counted in their millions over multiple levels of decomposition (3 is typical but we have seen 7 or more) • Traditional tools are limited with the questions they answer • Is it spelled correctly? Does it contain poor words? • Has everything been implemented (traceability)? • IBM Watson enables us to answer cognitive questions • Is the requirement well written and consistent? • Have we done something like this before? • Can we interpret the requirements into engineering data? (e.g. translate to models) • See IBM Watson video for details https://youtu.be/Ys19mPUjGpE
  34. 34. 42IBM Watson IoT / © 2018 IBM Corporation Current solutions…and why they can miss errors – Peer review – Difficult to enforce across teams – Manual, tedious review of long documents – Wasted time on trivial, novice mistakes – Checklists – Limited capacity to keep track of all quality indicators (cognitive span is 7 +/- 2 things) – Rules engines – Simple key word searches cannot understand words in context – Ex. of “clear” – Ambiguous: “The GPS system shall provide a clear perspective of the road” – Not ambiguous: “The GPS System shall clear the display on transition to power off mode”
  35. 35. 43 Watson / Presentation Title / Date43 Introducing Requirements Quality Assistant IBM Watson IoT / © 2018 IBM Corporation New Watson capability embedded inside DNG and DOORS… • Removes risk and ambiguity in the requirements authoring phase out-of-the-box by using AI (Watson Natural Language Understanding) • Pre-trained to detect key quality indicators designed to be consistent with the INCOSE Guidelines for Writing Good Requirements • Authors receive coaching from Watson to improve the quality of the requirement as it is being written Enterprise benefits (400 engineers example) • Reduce the cost of defects by 60% to save $3.9M • Reduce cost of manual reviews by 25% • Retain engineering expertise for junior engineers
  36. 36. 44IBM Watson IoT / © 2018 IBM Corporation IBM Requirements Quality Assistant • Grades requirements against a criteria that was designed to be consistent with the INCOSE Guidelines for Writing Good Requirements • Pre-trained to detect 10 quality issues – Unclear actor or user – Compound requirement – Negative requirements – Escape clause – Missing units – Missing tolerances – Ambiguity – Passive – Incomplete requirements – Unspecific quantities • Add to the list of quality issues or do deeper training through a 3 week services engagement with IBM services team
  37. 37. 45IBM Watson IoT / © 2018 IBM Corporation IBM Requirements Quality Assistant • Identifies exactly what’s wrong with the requirement • Displays the issue to the requirements engineer
  38. 38. 46IBM Watson IoT / © 2018 IBM Corporation IBM Requirements Quality Assistant • Learns from the requirements engineer • Becomes “smarter” over time

  41. 41. 11/19/19 Next Steps
  42. 42. 50 Next Step : • What clients do you see the above Synergies with? • Customized DOORS Next Gen Demo • Provide some sample requirement specifications (Word). ⁃ Insist on having least 2 different types of requirement specifications so that we can show the traceability between 2. • Provide some sample Requirement Traceability Matrix Files (Excel?) • Any particular regulations that need to provide compliance?
