Issue 3 of OptimiSE Magazine Available Now – Systems Engineering for the Rail Industry

We are thrilled to publish Issue 3 of OptimiSE Magazine, which aims to share best practices, insights and successes from the Rail Industry, which we are positive will be beneficial to wider industries.

Don’t work in Rail? This magazine is still for you!

The customer successes we have seen in our Systems Engineering business come, in some part, from the fact that we have worked with a range of different organisations across varied industries giving us unique insight and expertise which we then feed back into customer projects.

During the first half of 2019 we saw an increased demand for our services within the Rail Industry – we have been helping high profile players implement tools and practices to manage, implement and accelerate huge infrastructure projects.

We hope this Rail-themed issue makes for an informative, thought-provoking read.

In this issue:

  • Transport for London (TfL): Managing Complexity in Major Rail Projects (page 6)
  • Guest Article: Progressive Assurance for the Rail Industry (page 8)
  • The Case for Systems Engineering: Improved Competitiveness through Collaborative Engineering Management (page 10)

SyntheSys Selected for Latest Government G-Cloud 11 Scheme

SyntheSys has been accepted onto the Government’s Digital Marketplace ‘G-Cloud 11’ Supplier List which further establishes our status as a supplier of Cloud-based software.

Many of us use ‘The Cloud’ every day without realising it, as it has enabled a plethora of internet-based shopping, social media, and Government services. For industry, the benefits of using the Cloud to execute software and systems engineering projects in a global 24/7 environment are significant.

Government frameworks are agreements between the Government and suppliers. Buying services through frameworks is faster and cheaper than entering into individual procurement contracts.  The G-Cloud framework was developed to ensure government bodies can access best-in-class Cloud solutions.  

G-Cloud 11 replaces G-Cloud 10 services in which SyntheSys also participated.  The G-Cloud supplier list is split into Cloud Hosting, Cloud Software and Cloud Support and we are proud to be fully represented in all three categories.

The United Kingdom (UK) Government G-Cloud is a well-respected scheme specifically aimed at easing procurement by departments of UK public-sector bodies.  To maintain high standards, only suppliers who meet a set level are considered for a place on the G-Cloud 11 framework agreement.  SyntheSys is able to call on years of experience in this field.

Crucially G-Cloud provides an easy way for clients to access leading engineering software tools and services, backed by key associated technical support and top-class training from our team.

To access more information on our Government G-Cloud involvement, or to speak to us about your cloud hosting, software or support requirements contact
