Designing transport infrastructure from digital.

About this event

Digital Engineering (DE) is a global phenomenon that is rapidly evolving the way public infrastructure is procured, delivered, operated and maintained. DE is now recognised as global best practice for transport agencies, as a growing number of government and client organisations are now mandating the use of DE techniques and deliverables from their supply chain.

In this talk we discuss how Transport for NSW is developing a long-term strategy to implement DE consistently across programs and the asset lifecycle. We will also discuss project case-studies that demonstrate how DE is driving innovation, transforming business processes and achieving project outcomes.
