May 2017 – TS 22163 public seminars in Pittsburgh

The Bombardier Siete in Pittsburgh was so kind to host a second public seminar on the ISO/TS22163 requirements. Since IRIS Certification is not so recognized in the US, only 6 participants from Knorr-Brake, Smith Systems, Liberty Electronics and Vapor (Faiveley) participated. Neverthess, also the seminar in this small group was a huge success.

    Feedback gathered from the course evaluation sheets:

    Comment from Tabatha Boley from Liberty Electronics ( It was very detailed and informative. Andreas is very knowledgeable on the standard and was able to explain it for everone to understand. He kept us all involved. I personally take away a lot of information to give to my colleagues. I found the details on risk based thinking to be very informative.

    Comment from Christopher Mosser from Smith Systems Inc ( It helped me to better understand the standard in general, not just the upgrade.

    Comment from Tom Sims from Smith Systems Inc ( Good & informative level of understanding of TS 22163 to carry back for implementation. Course was paced very well. Excellent instructor with actual experience delivering standard.

    Comment from Michael OHara from Knorr Brake ( Instructor was well aware of the interaction between internal customers in an organization which allowed him to use examples that we could all relate to. Very knowledgeable about the TS22163 requirements and offered many helpful examples of how to be compliant.

    Comment from Thanh Doyle from Knorr Brake ( I liked most the provided examples of all processes. Gave opportunities to discuss our situation. It was very informative. I’m new to rail industry and after this course I’m able to understand the intention of the IRIS/TS 22163 standard. Excellent knowledge of the instructor.

    Comment from Christopher Diener from Vapor in Plattsburgh ( Very clear process flows, explaining the TS22163 requirements. Easy to see where IRIS requirements come from (interfaces). Practical tools shared that can jump start, reduce implementation time.
