Phase 1 - Requirements and initial design
This phase of the project will mainly address Objectives 1 and 2 by eliciting the key industrial and technical requirements, as well as identifying existing best practice and technologies from other domains that can be exploited to help achieve significant improvements in S&C design.
An architecture for modular design will be developed that will enable different subsystems to be interchanged during the life of a S&C installation. This will allow the subsystems to be developed with some level of independence (different manufacturers, different timescales for upgrade/renewal).
This phase of the project will also consider the design philosophy and develop initial high level conceptual designs for new S&C through the use of horizon scanning techniques, such as back-casting.
- WP1 – Best practice, elicitation of requirements and horizon scanning
- WP2 – Overall system architecture and initial high level design
