WP1 - System Architecture This WP will continue and extend the work on a first comprehensive architecture, mapping the technologies for the implementation of a new integrated railway system approach, based on the initial activities in the LinX4Rail project. Furthermore, this WP will consider latest developments related to the TAURO projects for e.g. decision making, supervision, remote control and automation all based on sensors and artificial intelligence.
In general, the objectives are:
Assess efficiently the business impact of intended subjects,
Continue and extend the work on a first comprehensive architecture,
Update the common Functional Railway System Architecture,
Map the technologies for the implementation of a new integrated railway system approach, based on the initial activities in the LinX4Rail project,
Analyse and review the TAURO architecture contributions and associated selected formal models,
Plan activities for the governance of the CDM/Functional Railway System architecture,
Agree on the MBSE use and apply it to the system architecture defined in LinX4Rail,
Agree on the most important representations of architecture models supporting the common comprehensive architecture (i.e. deployment architecture, logical architecture, physical architecture model) and the integration model.
In particular, this WP will update the common Functional Railway System Architecture and will integrate it into Shift2Rail carrying out the change management process, which is described in the “ED PB change management” document. The process is following the description and figure in the section 1.3.2 Methodology. The change management process steps are defined as:
Selection of subjects and system impact
Functional requirements specification implementation requests
Recommendation on change implementation
Feedback on integration
This structure aims at streamlining the inputs (“subjects”) from running projects and other initiatives outside Shift2Rail and analysing them. The Programme Board will approve or not the proposed subjects. LinX4Rail will provide specification requests, the projects will execute the technical impact assessment. LinX4Rail will present the technical impact assessment to the Programme Board. Based on the recommendations, the decision of an integration into the project is taken at the Programme Board level.
The WP1 is split into 5 tasks which are linked to each other:
T1.1 Common business objectives
T1.2 Functional Railway System Architecture
T1.3 Additional specification recommendations to Shift2Rail
T1.4 Strategy for implementation and proposing migration actions
T1.5 Technical coordination of the WPWP2 - Conceptual Data Model
Identification and definition of the common concepts related to the interface IP4 – IP2
Evolution and enrichment of CDM, designed in LinX4Rail according to identified use cases in the S2R-CFM-IP4-01-2020 project EXTENSIVE
Analyse and propose updates to the dictionary defined in the LinX4Rail WP2
Exploration of future evolution of CDM by means of integrating the S2R JU IP4 ecosystem
Support partners with technical implementation of CDM compliant interfaces for various use cases
Promotion of CDM by insuring the interoperability and interface with other initiatives
Explore IP4 – IP2 interface by means of business benefitsWP3 - Management of project, coordination with other projects and IPs
