“Our latest sander project, the OTM sander system, has been made a lot easier thanks to the assistance of James Johnson and the team at AEGIS Engineering Systems.
AEGIS have produced a compliance matrix; detailing all of the compliance requirements for the system, and what would be acceptable evidence to demonstrate compliance, on a clause-by-clause basis.
This allows ourselves – as the supplier – the customer – as the safety case holder – and the machine owner – as the ECM – to all agree in advance exactly what needs to be in the engineering change pack and who’s responsibility it is to provide it.
A common failing of modification projects, such as this, is failing to reach this understanding in advance and critical time being wasted to-ing and fro-ing hurriedly trying to assemble missing information at the last minute”.

“AEGIS has proven to dg8 design and engineering that it can deliver independent verification work in a timely and cost-effective manner and an excellent working relationship has developed between the two organisations. A key part of this relationship has been the pragmatic application of expertise of the Certification team who are familiar with the verification of engineering changes to existing railway vehicles, many of which were constructed prior to the implementation of current standards”.
Dave Dyche – Business Delivery Manager – dg8 design and engineering
“I just wanted to extend my thanks for working so hard to get the approvals and compliance completed today for the two TPWS projects. This was a significant challenge and I am very grateful and appreciative of your hard work… particularly with working late into the Friday evening.
Thank you particularly to Luigi, Shamal, Abigail and Tony for your support (and patience..!!) over the past few weeks in getting everything in place”
