Dodgson M, Gann D, MacAulay S, Davies Aet al., 2015, Innovation strategy in new transportation systems: The case of Crossrail, Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, Vol: 77, Pages: 261-275, ISSN: 0965-8564

This article examines how innovation can be strategically incorporated into transportation systems. Large transportation systems generally have a poor record in systematically integrating innovation in their development, construction and operation. Our research setting is Crossrail, a major new railway traversing London, where the creation and implementation of an innovation strategy formalized and systemized its approach to innovation. Based on in-depth, semi-structured interviews with project leaders and participant observation, the paper critically analyses the formulation, implementation and performance of Crossrail’s innovation strategy. Crossrail’s management explicitly uses an ‘open innovation’ strategy that incentivizes partners, contractors, and clients to innovate in the project. Its strategy guides decisions and priorities on innovation and the types and levels of innovation that best match project aims. The paper holds lessons for those developing, operating and studying large transportation systems both now and into the future.

Suzuki LR, Finkelstein A, Gann D, 2013, A middleware framework for urban data management, Pages: 1359-1362

The domain of inquiry of this research is the collection, organization, integration, distribution and consumption of knowledge derived from urban open data, and how it can be best offered to application cities' stakeholders through a software middleware. We argue that the extensive investigation proposed in this research will contribute to a growing body of knowledge about data integration and application in smart cities, and offer opportunities to re-think an integrated urban infrastructure.

Gann DM, Dodgson M, Bhardwaj D, 2011, Physical-digital integration in city infrastructure, IBM Journal of Research & Development, Vol: 55, Pages: 8:1-8:10

There is increasing recognition by researchers, businesses, andpolicymakers of the value of integrating the systems of systems ofwhich cities are comprised. It is less clear how this can be achieved,in practice, from a technical and organizational standpoint. Thispaper is concerned with one element of this integration, namely, theintegration of physical infrastructures and digital technologies. Weargue that technological innovation has historically been crucial tothe development of cities and will also be crucial in future smartcities. Cities become ‘‘smarter’’ when they make use of the increasedavailability of data and analytical techniques to improve effectivenessand efficiency. The better integration of physical and digitalinfrastructures can significantly contribute to these objectives.The engineering tools and models used in the design, construction,and operation of a city infrastructure can now utilize a suite oftechnologies and processes to assist this integration. This isparticularly necessary and challenging when the collaborativeinvolvement of diverse parties is required and different vintages ofinfrastructure and technology must be combined. This paper is basedon case studies of IBM and the construction company LaingO’Rourke. It provides examples showing how these ‘‘innovationtechnologies’’ improve opportunity and reduce risk in physical–digitalintegration and provides questions for further investigation.

Manufacturers in the UK have to develop new and innovative ways to maintainhard-won market positions to protect proprietary technology or compete withlow-cost economies. One approach is through services-led competitive strategies.In this first of two articles the authors deal with the need to prepare engineers for amanufacturing industry built around services. The second article (on page 36) examinesthe threats and opportunities facing manufacturers who move into services.
