PBS firmly believes that collecting detailed field information and developing a comprehensive plan for system design, equipment installation, acceptance testing, system cut-over, and post installation maintenance is critical to the overall success of any project. The PBS team is well positioned to provide engineering and design services geared to the successful implementations of ITS (toll systems, ATMS, vehicle detection, PVMS, MPT, CCTV), communications (SONET/DWDM voice, fiber optics, wireless, LAN cabling etc.) and surveillance system (CCTV, access control) projects. Systems may include control systems, railroad interlocking equipment, wayside equipment, data communications systems, SCADA systems, video surveillance systems, central equipment at the Operations Control Centers, power and communications infrastructure. PBS’ engineering services include the following:
Calculations and analysis
Surveys and feasibility reviews
Wiring and terminations layout details
Communications network planning and design
Detailed design drawings development
Technical Specifications development
Support with the Critical Design Review (CDR), Preliminary Design Review (PDR) and Final Design Review (FDR)
Maintenance and operational support procedures development
PBS is fully capable of providing exceptional deployment support services for a variety of systems including communications, video surveillance and ITS systems. Deployment services provided by PBS can include:
QA/QC will ensure that the work is performed in quality manner in accordance with the specifications and project documents. The QAQC Manager will put in place procedures and guidelines to be followed by the project staff in order to deliver an excellent quality product.
PBS will undertake those actions, procedures and methods necessary to observe and assure prudent quality controls are developed, implemented and are effective. QA personnel are responsible for inspecting, observing and reviewing those processes as they are being carried out to ensure that they are being followed, and that they are effective in producing consistent quality products. Some of the QA requirements for the installation portion of the project may include:
PBS will develop methods and procedures, which will be routinely employed at the project level, within the technical disciplines (design, permitting and construction), to produce the desired result of quality product and services. QC is implemented through the development and implementation of those procedures through visual inspection of the work activity, audits, measurements or checking of results at defined intervals, and if necessary, performing independent testing to verify results.
