We help our clients improve their ability to deal with complexity through organisational development, professional mentoring and specific, tailored training in the capability design and analysis work Shoal conducts.

Systems Engineering in Rail Course

Successful development of rail systems involves developing a deep understanding of the complex problem and how the solutions developed will meet these challenges.

This one-day course provides an overview of the challenges faced in designing and successfully implementing complex rail systems. The approaches presented will combine international standards, cutting-edge research and practical experience to deliver a robust and defensible approach to determining solutions that address the capability needs of the rail industry.

Successful development of modern systems involves engineers developing a deep understanding of the complex problem they face and how the solutions they develop will meet these challenges. Model-based systems engineering is the modern approach to this design effort, supporting conceptual design through to implementation and beyond with an underlying model that contains information about the problem and designed system solution. This current common understanding, with fit-for-purpose views according to user need, allows for significant benefits over the traditional document-based approach including improved robustness, traceability, knowledge sharing and alignment of analysis.

Next available MBSE and MBCE using CORE course:

Date: 6 – 10 November 2017

Location: Adelaide

Duration: 3 days

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)

These courses focus on systems thinking and the model-based paradigm implemented in CORE or GENESYS. Through the course students will see how to apply model-based techniques to behaviour modelling, requirements analysis, functional analysis and allocation, and system synthesis.

Duration: 2 days

Model-Based Capability Design (MBCD)

These courses build on the MBSE using CORE or GENESYS course, taking the classic systems engineering techniques and applying them to capability design. This demonstrates a way of applying well developed MBSE techniques to rigorous problem definition and user needs development.
