Successfully Measuring Progress Using Module of Metrics in California High-Speed Rail

When:  Feb 25, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM (PT)
This webinar provides insights into the use of modules of metrics (MoM) in the California High-Speed Rail System (CHSRS), a multi-billion-dollar program procured in several individual procurement contracts including civil works, track and systems, trainsets, and the train operator. There are currently three active civil works contracts, spanning 119 miles including the design and construction of over 225 different guide way sections, aerial structures, trenches, roadway overheads, and other structures.

Requirements are managed in DOORS, with hundreds of modules and thousands of requirements in each contract. With the progression of design and construction metrics were developed, measuring how the requirements were addressed in several thousand contractor design and construction submittals, eventually evolving into the MoM approach. As the first structures are being readied for acceptance, certification and handover to the next track and systems contractor, it is of even more importance to demonstrate that all applicable requirements have been satisfied by each contract.
The CHSRS MoM approach has been successfully implemented as a pilot for one the three civil works contracts and is planned to be rolled out to the remaining civil works and any or the future contracts. This webinar will discuss the MoM objectives, challenges, implementation, and the use of the MoM for both technical and managerial use.
