Our consultants have decades of experience with advanced signalling and train control systems, including in-cab, wayside and control room applications for ETCS Level 1 and 2 and CBTC. We have also successfully supported the design and development of high integrity products for safety-critical applications.

Combining a strong background in software development with a broad range of engineering expertise, Acmena offers a pragmatic approach that focuses on integrating the development of embedded software into the wider systems engineering program to ensure that it is fit for purpose.

Having years of experience in safety-critical industries, our team understands the practical issues of developing technically complex systems and software and can provide effective advice on the most cost-effective methods for fulfilling your performance, safety and regulatory requirements.

With extensive experience in managing and leading software development teams, we can review projects to identify risks and issues and recommend improvement actions. Our consultants will work with you to develop plans to ensure software products meet their requirements, including compliance to standards and regulations. We can also audit and review software and development processes against CENELEC 50128 and IEC 61508 standards to assess compliance to a given Safety Integrity Level (SIL).

Using best practice tools and techniques, including static analysis, our verification and validation services can provide you with the confidence that your systems and software will perform as intended. We can also help to validate software requirements, including safety requirements, using systems engineering best practice in the elicitation and specification of requirements.
