At Atkins, we believe that conscious and pragmatic systems engineering will deliver the overall project objectives by assuring that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Atkins has played an active role in INCOSE for almost a decade; as well as other professional bodies including UKAB membership and active support of the Rail Interest Group and the Architecture Working Group. We also recently became the first major European engineering consultancy to join the International Corporate Advisory Board.
Leading the way – sharing best practice
As one of the world’s leading providers of professional, technology-based consultancy and support services, Atkins has played a prominent role in using, developing and sharing best practice in systems engineering.
Key to this effort has been our global systems engineering network made up of experienced specialists who champion cross-industry best practice, raise professional standards and engage with academia and learned institutions.
Working with systems engineers from our defence, highways, rail, nuclear, marine and architecture businesses, the network supports Atkins’ operations in markets where systems engineering is totally embedded, where it is used but still novel and where it is not yet recognised.
Whatever the market, the ultimate aim remains constant: to leverage value for our customers by combining Atkins’ broad capability with a consistent, ‘excellent’ approach to systems engineering.
Atkins ‘project manages and delivers’
Atkins provides services to leading civil aircraft manufacturers covering landing gear and fuel systems. Atkins project manage and deliver fixed price packages of work from requirements analysis to system simulation and modelling of functional, performance, hydro-mechanical and structural problems. Please refer to the aerospace engineering service pages or the aerospace sector pages for more information.
In the communications sector
We have a team of systems and software development engineers in UK and Bangalore building systems to overcome complex challenges; our testing capability and assurance services ensure our systems meet user requirements.
In the rail sector
Within the rail and mass transit sectors, seamless systems integration sets us apart. Through our holistic approach, we ensure each element of a rail system is designed to maximise the efficiency of the next; this ultimately adds value over the entire system lifecycle.
