This Standard provides a common baseline to establish a standardized approach for improved procurement, management, and exchange of project information deliverables through Digital Engineering (DE). This is aimed at improving digital collaboration between asset owners and their supply chains and promotes the digital transformation of the rail industry.
This standard covers the following key topics as follows:
a) DE key concepts – General background, concepts and advice on DE and data management.
b) DE business setup – Business improvements required prior to procurement and implementation of DE on rail infrastructure projects.
c) DE project planning – Activities required for DE scoping and specification in project contracts to inform procurement of DE services.
d) DE project delivery – Activities required for the successful delivery of DE services for rail infrastructure projects.
