E-OCVM (Version 2) Explained Episode 3 - CAATS II Final Dissemination Event Alistair Jackson EUROCONTROL Episode 3 Brussels, 13 & 14 Oct 2009
Episode 3 - CAATS II Final Dissemination Event 2 Operational Concept Validation What is it ? … and why do we need it ? When we intend to develop and implement new operational systems we need evidence to support investment decisions. We need to know that any new operational change: - will bring the performance benefits we require; - will be safe in operations; - Will be compatible with other system elements, and - will be usable and acceptable by the operational staff, pilots, controllers, etc., who will use it. Concept Validation is about identifying, collecting and structuring the necessary evidence.
Brussels, 13 & 14 Oct 2009 Episode 3 - CAATS II Final Dissemination Event 3 E-OCVM Version 2.0 What is the E-OCVM ? The European Operational Concept Validation Methodology is a framework for R&D to establish a common approach to all projects contributing to the validation of operational concepts. Mandated by Joint Programme Board (EC and EUROCONTROL) in January 2005 (V1.0).
Brussels, 13 & 14 Oct 2009 Episode 3 - CAATS II Final Dissemination Event 4 E-OCVM Version 2.0 Where did it come from ? Initial collaborative programmes, like PHARE and ODID in 1990’s; need to improve the effectiveness of exercises but also the need to improve transfer from R&D to implementation. Validation methodology projects like CAVA, MAEVA; Cooperation with the FAA (Operational Concept Validation Strategy Document – OCVSD); CAATS I. Experience in large scale, multi-partner Concept Validation Studies – e.g. Gate-to-Gate.
Brussels, 13 & 14 Oct 2009 Episode 3 - CAATS II Final Dissemination Event 5 What does it consist of ? E-OCVM found the need for 3 ‘perspectives’ to capture different aspects of validation. Concept Lifecycle Model (CLM) - Locates ‘Validation’ processes within the broader context of system development Structured Planning Framework (SPF) - Provides a structure for the identification, planning, execution and analysis of appropriate validation exercises Case Based Approach - Is concerned with capturing stakeholder expectations & concerns and ensuring that validation activities provide the necessary results in an appropriate form to address them.

Brussels, 13 & 14 Oct 2009 Episode 3 - CAATS II Final Dissemination Event 8 Case Based Approach Is about capturing and addressing stakeholder needs, concerns and priorities Ensuring that they are addressed during the validation phases (and after) through a structured process – the case Different cases for particular stakeholder concerns – safety; business case, environment, human factors, etc. Communicating the results in a way that is accessible and meaningful for the stakeholders
