Danish Fjernbane Rail Programme



We have provided the human factors team for the East Side of the signaling replacement project for Fjernbane network in Denmark. We have been working for Alstom who are the signaling contractor to Banedanmark.


Client: Alstom
Location: Denmark

What we did

Our work has included the production of an Ergonomics Plan spanning the whole of the fifteen year programme. We have delivered interactive ergonomics and design input across all Traffic Management, Control Centre and trackside equipment work streams.  Our human factors input has included the TM interface/HMI design and the ergonomic design of East Side Control Centre covering Operations Floor, Back Offices and Equipment Room specifications.  The control centre work has included the Operations Floor functional layout design as well as the workstation design and tender specifications.

We have also provided human factors input to Hand Held Terminal specification and HMI.

The early deployment line from Roskilde to Ringsted is due to go into operation in May 2016.

How we added value

  • Strategic planning of the human factors work across the project
  • Improving usability of the safety critical control systems
  • Ensuring the control centre design meets user needs
