The rail industry is resource and space efficient: it helps improve congestion and reduces pollution in cities while offering long-term socio-economic benefits. At WSP, we are empowered to turn challenges into opportunities. We have the culture and the capacity to develop the railway industry to its full potential.
The WSP Rolling Stock teams are passionate about providing a holistic approach to the rail industry. We share common guiding principles and working methods - carried out by tools such as the Integrated Pyramid Organization Model (IPOM™) and the Demand-Driven-Design™ Process.
A true holistic approach comes from building the competence pyramid from bottom-up. By doing so, we are able to call upon profound technical knowledge as well as strategic advisory services. This is why WSP stands on firm ground when it comes to advising the rail industry.
WSP’s risk-minimizing Demand-Driven-Design™ (3D) process strives to fulfill client’s needs from a system perspective. We challenge our clients in order to identify their overarching requirements, rather than being solution driven. This is how we remain truly accountable to our clients.
THE PRODUCT ASSURANCE PRINCIPLE©
Optimizing an existing product platform for a new client, in order to minimize LCC, may introduce unproven designs. Such benefits should only be considered if they more than balance the financial risk of technical failure, operational loss and late modifications.
