Effektivt införande av ny teknik i en organisation: En studie om trafikledningen i införandeprocessen av ERTMS i Sverige
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The new railway signaling system ERTMS, European Rail Traffic Management System, will be introduced in all the railway tracks in Sweden, due to the Swedish railway legislation. The implementation of ERTMS in Sweden is performed by Trafikverket and two pilot projects have been done. Now the experiences from the traffic managements for these pilot tracks must be preserved.
The purpose of this master thesis was to identify key aspects to facilitate the implementation of ERTMS for the traffic management in Sweden. The main task was to collect the experiences from the introduction of ERTMS on the pilot tracks from the traffic management in Ånge and Boden. The problems that occurred before, during and after the implementation process of ERTMS on the pilot tracks have been identified and further recommendations have been developed for how these problems can be avoided and managed in the upcoming implementation of the remaining tracks in Sweden.
The main contribution of the thesis is recommendations to Trafikverket on how to facilitate the ERTMS implementation process for the traffic management. The key recommendations are:
That the technology works and that the traffic management has the opportunity to influence the development of new versions of the system.
That the traffic management should be informed about the project and involved in the implementation process.
That the education and practice for the traffic management in ERTMS will satisfy their need in terms of adapted material and that they have access to an ERTMS simulator.
If Trafikverket takes into consideration the problems that have occurred and work out solutions for how to manage and avoid them in the upcoming implementation of ERTMS in Sweden, the outcome should be successful.
