Design project

PDEng Design project: Systems Engineering within IPM-teams

Since 2007, Systems Engineering is used in the Dutch civil engineering sector. The shift contributed to several improvements, however the application of Systems Engineering can still be improved for Rijkswaterstaat. Rijkswaterstaat uses so called Integrated Project Management (IPM-)teams to carry out its projects related to public works and infrastructure. The IPM-team of Rijkswaterstaat consists out of five roles related to: project management, project control, contracting, stakeholders management and technical issues. This project focuses on the further improvement of Systems Engineering within IPM-teams. First, the project identified bottlenecks in the current practice. Currently interventions are under development that aim to improve the application of Systems Engineering within IPM-teams.

Collaboration with Rijkswaterstaat’s practitioners and projects is sought to integrate findings in the final design. First, interviews were conducted to investigate the perceptions and the context of IPM-teams in relation to Systems Engineering. Case studies were conducted to analyse the problems and bottlenecks in the current Systems Engineering process. Based on the findings, interventions were developed to overcome the bottlenecks related to System Engineering in teams. The developed interventions will be implemented and evaluated in an IPM-team. The final design consists of both an implementation plan and described interventions that improve the application of Systems Engineering within IPM-teams.
