Our team of experienced professionals brings a wealth of experience and technical knowledge to every project, ensuring that infrastructure project managers, rail project managers, rail operations managers, systems engineers, and civil engineers receive the best possible service.

A Proven Track Record

Our extensive portfolio showcases our capability in managing complex light rail projects from inception to completion. We have successfully delivered numerous projects on time and within budget, earning us a reputation for reliability and excellence in the industry.

Key Projects

1. Systems Engineering Management Plan: Yarra Trams 

As part of the MR4 franchise agreement with the Department of Transport, Yarra Trams was required to develop a Systems Engineering Management Plan in alignment with the ISO15288 industry standard for Systems Engineer and project life cycle.

Yarra Trams engaged Systematiq to audit the existing plan, as well as compile a series of technical guidelines which mapped the delivery of systems engineering deliverables from the requirements phase to operate and maintain as per ISO requirements.

The project successfully delivered a compliance audit, engineering competency framework and series of guidelines which enables entry level engineering staff and sub-contractors to conform to the ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 standard.

2. Asset Management Assessment: Yarra Trams

When Yarra Trams was required to develop a Systems Engineering Management Plan that met the AS/NZS ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288:2015 Standard and Competency Guidelines, it called upon Systematiq’s consulting expertise to ensure compliance.

Systematiq conducted a technical review on the relevant Asset Condition Assessment Guidelines (ACAG) and provided recommendations on the quality and completeness of the documents. Further, Systematiq provided input into how effective the ACAGs were to achieve program objectives, and how these would be incorporated into business-as-usual activities.

Yarra Trams praised the work done by Systematiq: “They were rapid to mobilise and provided consistently high-quality outputs which enabled Yarra Trams to summarise and provide scoping estimates with efficiency and a solid information base.”

3. Reliability and Cost Modelling: Yarra Trams

Yarra Trams identified an opportunity to improve their Asset Management by establishing standard functional hierarchies for Rolling Stock, Infrastructure and Operational Control Management Systems. These required Reliability & Life Cycle Cost Modelling.

Systematiq was engaged by Yarra Trams Reliability Engineers and Maintainers to establish classification of parts into functional systems, and the level of maintenance and special equipment required to return the part into service. Using the data collected, a reliability model was developed to predict the required maintenance and impacts to service delivery.

Systems Engineering Excellence

Our systems engineers are adept at developing and implementing robust frameworks that ensure the reliability and efficiency of light rail systems. From requirements analysis to system verification and validation, we cover all critical aspects of systems engineering.

Integration and Interface Management

One of the most challenging aspects of light rail projects is managing the integration of various subsystems. Systematiq excels in interface management, ensuring that all components work together seamlessly. Our meticulous approach minimizes risks and maximizes operational efficiency.

Risk Management

Effective risk management is integral to the success of any light rail project. At Systematiq, we identify potential risks early and develop comprehensive mitigation strategies. This proactive approach helps us deliver projects with minimal disruptions.

Client-Centric Approach

“Our client-centric approach sets us apart,” explains Systems Engineering Manager Rhiannon Stratford. 

“We understand that every project is unique, and we tailor our services to meet specific client needs. Our collaborative process involves regular communication and updates, ensuring transparency and fostering strong partnerships.”

Training and Knowledge Transfer

Rhiannon goes on to explain how we empower our clients through knowledge transfer.

“Systematiq provides comprehensive training programs to ensure that your team is well-equipped to operate and maintain the new systems. This dedication to client education ensures long-term success.”


Systematiq’s extensive experience and technical expertise make us the ideal partner for light rail systems engineering projects. Our proven track record, innovative solutions, and client-centric approach ensure the successful delivery of projects that meet and exceed expectations.
