Crossrail Approach to Managing Interfaces


Identification and definition of interfaces has been critical to the success of Crossrail so far, especially given the number of different Industry Partners involved in delivering the infrastructure. This learning legacy paper provides an overview of some of the key principles adopted by Crossrail in the delivery of the programme with a specific focus on interfaces; identification of interfaces; reporting and presenting of interfaces, including examples of key interfaces. It describes the importance of Anchor Milestones and Stage Diagrams in defining the strategic interfaces, Interface Milestones Schedules in tracking the forecast deviations against the baseline, all of which have been key to supporting successful delivery of Crossrail.
