Operational Concept Development, a simple case study

This event will workshop the development of an Operational Concept Development (OCD ) for a level crossing linking ISO15288 and system engineering methods.

This workshop will be held in the WSP office, 900 Ann St, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane and will also be broadcast live as a webinar. All attendees including those participating remotely will be invited to contribute to the interactive element of the workshop.

The key outcomes from this workshop are to provide participants with a better understanding of the purpose of the OCD, to work through a methodology to achieve this, and to provide an overview of SE techniques linking to ISO15288, MBSE tools and SySML drawings. The event will include a session to workshop some scenarios to identify needs and requirements.


Greg Paulsen CPEng NER RPEQ

Greg has 30 years’ experience in the telecommunications sector in executive, management and design roles with Telstra and Alcatel-Lucent. Most recently he has been responsible for a number of complex system integration projects in the Electricity, Oil & Gas, Rail and Marine sectors. He has recently completed a Masters in Engineering Science in the field of System Engineering. He has used the techniques that we will go through today in preparing the Operational Concepts for complex rail tunnels and rail signalling systems via the use of Model Based System Engineering tools.
