What we did
CCD has been at the forefront of the development of the methods for ergonomics studies in UK rail. The Project Ergonomics Study toolkit is now the de-facto methodology in the industry. The methodology delivers a standardised approach to modelling the existing railway infrastructure and its impact on the workload and operational effectiveness of the signaller. Our tools enable our specialist rail Ergonomists to model the impact of the changes to the track and control infrastructure on this workload. This predictive methodology is invaluable in evaluating the impact of different options in a scheme design.
CCD has recently completed PES programmes for re-signalling projects including Stafford, Cambridge, Thames Valley, Motherwell, NYL, Transpennine and York.
