Rail System Testing Services

Anthony Williams



With a mandate to rapidly enhance rail capacity within five years, our client launched a program of projects to redevelop business processes, information systems and supporting infrastructure that would improve operations visibility, minimise downtime and, ultimately, increase asset utilisation.



The Business Challenge

Ensure the successful implementation of the client’s highest profile program by reviewing, consolidating and streamlining business processes to meet growing business demands, particularly for monitoring and diagnostic data.


The Solution

After defining the phases and level of testing required, we provided guidelines and education to all vendors on criteria for the production of all test artefacts, against which all deliverables are reviewed and approved. Our consultants conducted system and integration testing, including test planning, test design and test execution.



The Services

Modis provided a range of services, including:

  • program management;
  • project management;
  • business analysis;
  • software design and development;
  • testing;
  • change management;
  • infrastructure management;
  • application and post-go-live support; and
  • user training.



The Outcomes

Early engagement of testing provided invaluable feedback, resulting in a robust set of business and system requirements. Furthermore, a well-defined and effective test process with QA gateways ensured early detection of defects and compliance with business requirements and expectations.
