Systems Engineering Solution
Report, 2013

The development and realisation of urban infrastructural projects such as bridges is getting increasingly more difficult and complex to manage. The challenge for the actors to develop an effective solution for the project within the traditional dimensions of time, budget and quality is still very present. But society also calls for more sustainable solutions which minimizes an eventual negative impact on the environment and takes into account the interests of stakeholders. The introduction of national and EU regulated procurement methods such as the Most Economically Advantageous Tenders (MEAT), has opened the way towards a more active and balanced involvement of actors and stakeholders in the development and realisation of urban construction projects. In this new environment, the client, consultant, contractor and stakeholders strive to work together in order to realise a sustainable solution. This document describes a methodology for the management of project processes with the aim of achieving a lawful, effective and sustainable construction process. The methodology is based on the principle of Life Cycle Systems Engineering, and facilitates and structures the introduction of sustainability and stakeholders issues in the design and build process. The method uses manly existing guidelines and standards for Life Cycle Systems Engineering.
