New, as well as continuing, projects – such as those involving public transport infrastructure - are becoming more complex these days. The large number of stakeholders, existing physical assets and the increasing use of technology are contributing to this. This makes delivery certainty on budget, in time and in line with the intended outcomes even more important.

Arcadis has adopted a combination of Systems Engineering and Semantic Information modelling to address these challenges in our projects. In this talk, we will dive deeper into the use of Semantic Information Modelling for achieving better explainability of requirements, from the first ideas of the stakeholder, all the way through the lifecycle of the system. We will also discuss how this approach affects the interoperability of data and is contributing to the acceleration to the digital transformation of the engineering sector while putting our client requirements right in the heart of this transformation.

Join us and get inspired by how Arcadis, a design and engineering company, is approaching requirements explainability for the infrastructure and buildings systems they are developing on projects as High Speed 2 in the UK, the Sydney Metro and Amsterdam Airport.

Harmen Kievit is an Associate Director at Arcadis and leads on the development and scaling of their Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) with Semantic Information modelling services in the United Kingdom and Globally. With Arcadis for over 9 years, Harmen worked on major multidisciplinary infrastructure- and building projects across the UK and Europe applying MBSE for design integration and requirement management. Amongst his projects is High Speed 2.

Harmen holds a MSc in Urban Geography from the Utrecht University and a BBA in Real Estate Management from the University of Applied Science Saxion.
