Objectives Initially, selected customer groups and network operatives will review the concepts and add to/improve them by attending specific key stakeholder engagements. These stakeholders have previously been identified as the best source for representation, in Street Score 1. A number of these, and possible additional ideas will be taken forward and further designed. The concepts will then be reviewed again by the working groups, and a smaller number moved into a prototype stage. Once these prototypes have been created, a validation session will be held. This will allow participants to test the prototypes in a simulated working environment utilising findings from live street works examples where possible. To conclude, this feedback will be taken and used to identify the routes forward for these concepts in the field.Data Quality StatementThe project will ensure that data is of sufficient quality to deliver project objectives by engaging and testing prototypes/revised concepts with the customer advocacy groups identified as part of Street Score 1, this will provide additional stakeholder led validation. Using these already established groups will result in consistency in the data that is being captured and presented as part of the project findings as well as ensuring that the project team, led by Steer Energy, can deliver the project objectives to a high standard. Measurement Quality StatementThe project will collect data directly from consumers and customer advocacy groups that are key stakeholders in the consumer vulnerability space. This data will be communicated and reviewed with the wider project team regularly to ensure transparency and consistency. Through engagement with informed and established stakeholder groups, the resulting action will ensure that in consistency in the data that is being captured and presented as part of the project findings is paramount as well as ensuring that the project team, led by Steer Energy, can deliver the project objectives to a high standard.  The overall scope is the engineering development of Street Score 2 – Inclusive of bring ideas and concepts to conducting design development and prototype development. This is achieved by. Recruiting, engaging and sharing information from Street Score 1 with the various interested parties Gather the responses and collate further ideas/concepts Interact with 30-50 different stakeholders Document design and review with feedback Develop a number of prototypes and review Stage 1Recruit and properly engage with the required stakeholders, users and network staff into the project. - Project team constructedStage 2Provide the information from Street Score 1 to the various interested parties. - Information shared with relevant stakeholdersGather information from parties responses and collect further ideas / concepts. - Information collected and documentedIntend for interactions with around 30-50 different stakeholders, all with competing and often diverging requirements. - Record and report on number of stakeholders engagedStage 3Conduct design development and review loops with the project stakeholders. - Document design development and review loops with recorded feedbackStage 4Undertake a number of prototype development and review loops with the project stakeholders. - Prototype and demonstrated around five different concepts.
Abstract Street Score 2 will take the concepts outlined in Street Score 1 and accelerate them forward to representative field testing through several design/test cycles. Initially, selected customer groups and network operatives will review the concepts and add to/improve them. A number of these will be taken forward and further designed. These will then be reviewed again by the working groups, and a smaller number moved into a prototype stage. Once these prototypes have been created, a validation session will be held. This will allow participants to test the prototypes in a simulated working environment. To conclude, this feedback will be taken and used to identify the routes forward to field use for the concepts.
