Ross & Baruzzini was the prime consultant for the initial design and specification development for New Jersey Transit’s next generation Train Management and Control / Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (TMAC/SCADA) called TMAC II. The TMAC II system is the critical system used by the Train Dispatchers and Power Supervisors that allows New Jersey Transit to remotely dispatch and monitor train movements and the Traction Power network. TMAC II also serves as the interface for other railroads and will interact with sub systems used by New Jersey Transit for equipment maintenance, crew management, scheduling, and other data affecting train operations. The specification development effort generated more than 4,000 requirements.
New Jersey Transit has reengaged Ross & Baruzzini in order to provide project management support, technical feedback during preliminary and final design reviews, proving the official responses from New Jersey Transit to requests for information, developing test plans for factory acceptance testing, document management, and action item tracking for the overall project.
Ross & Baruzzini will also oversee all factory acceptance and field testing for the requirements generated during the specification development phase of the project. The Ross & Baruzzini team will develop plans and traceability matrices that ensure that the Train Dispatchers, Power Supervisors and other NJ Transit personnel receive the TMAC II system that has been designed to meet their operational needs.
