Within a project team (possibly a mixed Client-Engineering team), the system engineer is the guarantor of the integrity and coherence of the system and subsystems development necessary for the intensive exploitation of the infrastructure by meeting the requirements of high level performance, availability and safety that are expected.
Within the scope of the function, the system engineer ensures the development of this system activity (design and validation) according to the project development V-model principles.
The system engineer actively participates in the definition of WBS and registers in successive design reviews, as a key player in system coherence.
The system engineer is responsible and the guarantor for system development, particularly in project management procedures and in the monitoring of the interfaces matrix management (functional, performance and security).
The system engineer acts as permanent interface with the holders of those functions: Power Traction, Rail track, Signaling, Radio Communication, Real-Time Supervision.
The system engineer also defines the system allocation to the various subsystems and their expected performance level (RAMS).
Throughout the project engineering implementation cycle, the system engineer ensures that system allocation to each subsystem is processed in a consistent and coherent way, at least:
As such, the system engineer is the internal referent in the project engineering organization regarding the control of the requirements specific to these allocation systems.
The system engineer is in interface with the business specialists in charge of development/specification/implementation and acceptance/commissioning of installations and/or equipment of the global system.
